SaltStack extension for Visual Studio Code

This extension adds language colorization support for the SaltStack template language to VS Code. The language is a yaml with Jinja2 templating.

IDE

Using the extension

First, you will need to install Visual Studio Code 1.19.0 or higher. In the command palette (cmd-shift-p) select Install Extension and choose SaltStack.

Autocompletion

Salt states

When writing Salt states, pressing ctrl+space will offer to autocomplete state functions and some stanzas.

Example:

some_id:
  test.<ctrl+space>

Results in:

some_id:
  test.+-----------------------+
       |check_pillar           |
       |configurable_test_state|
       |fail_with_changes      |
       |fail_without_changes   |
       |nop                    |
       |show_notification      |
       |succeed_with_changes   |
       |succeed_without_changes|
       +-----------------------+

Full state modules can also be completed:

some_other_id:
  test.configurable_test_state:<ctrl+space>

Results in:

some_other_id:
  test.conffigurable_test_state:
    - name: _unique_string_
    - changes: True
    - result: True
    - comment: ''

Saltcheck

Saltcheck tests (.tst files) can also be autocompleted with the keyword sctest<ctrl+space>

Example:

_testid_:
  module_and_function: _test.echo_
  args:
    - should return
  assertion: _assertTrue_
  expected_return: _should return_

Contributing

If you are interested in making this extension better, I will gladly take pull requests that expand it to add intellisense, hovers and validators. If you're not familiar with working on Visual Studio Code extensions, check out the VS Code extenders documentation at https://code.visualstudio.com/docs.

To get started on the extension...

  1. Go to the Debug viewlet and select Launch Extension then hit run (F5). This will launch a second instance of Code with the extension from the first window loaded.

  2. As you make changes, you can also reload (Ctrl+R or Cmd+R on Mac) the second Code window to load any changes.

If you have a previous release of the extension installed and you perform these steps, Code will temporarily override the locally installed version instead for the one you're working on for the second window. The first (main) window will remain to have the locally installed, prior version installed and enabled until an update is available.

Publishing

  1. Bump version number in package.json

  2. After git push, a build starts automatically. Publishing to marketplace requires manual approval in Jenkins
