Web Extension Pack
A Visual Studio extension that installs a short list of highly valuable extensions targeted web development.
See the change log for changes and road map.
After installing the Web Extension Pack and restarting Visual Studio, the following extensions will be installed:
- Add New File
- Browser Reload on Save
- Browser Sync
- Bundler & Minifier
- Editor Enhancements
- File Icons
- File Nesting

- Image Optimizer

- Open Command Line
- Package Installer
- Suggested Extensions
- Package Security Alerts
- Syntax Highlighting Pack
- Web Accessibility Checker
- Web Compiler
- Web Essentials 2015
If you already have one or more of these extensions installed, Web Extension Pack will not re-install them. It will simply just skip them.
These extensions are not included, but they are likely to be of interest.
- NPM Task Runner
- Client-Side Library Installer
- Open in VS Code
- SideWaffle Template Pack
- Text Generator
- Trailing Whitespace Visualizer
It doesn't take long to install the extensions. Probably less than a minute.
When installation is done you will be prompted to restart Visual Studio. After the restart, all the extensions are fully functional and ready to use.
