VS Code VSCE GitHub Action

A GitHub Action to automate deploying VS Code extensions by using vsce.

It will enable workflows to easily deploy your VS Code extensions to the marketplace.

Usage

Here's an example workflow which publishes an extension when you push to the master branch.

on:
  push:
    branches:
      - master
name: Deploy Extension
jobs:
  deploy:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - run: npm install
      - uses: lannonbr/vsce-action@3.0.0
        with:
          args: "publish -p $VSCE_TOKEN"
        env:
          VSCE_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.VSCE_TOKEN }}

Secrets

The VSCE_TOKEN secret is used to authenticate with Azure DevOps when running the vsce CLI. You can find out how to create this token here on the VS Code Docs: Publishing VS Code Extensions

Example Use Cases

  • Deploy nightly builds once a day if the master branch has changed since the last build.
  • Deploy releases after PRs with a Release label are merged into Master.
  • Promote new version of extension on social media with additional Actions.

Creating and publishing extensions with vsce is already fairly simple, but this will further integrate it into CI workflows with GitHub Actions.
