The Docker extension makes it easy to build, manage and deploy containerized applications from Visual Studio Code.


  • Automatic Dockerfile, docker-compose.yml, and .dockerignore file generation (Press F1 and search for Docker: Add Docker files to Workspace)
  • Syntax highlighting, hover tips, IntelliSense (completions) for docker-compose.yml and Dockerfile files
  • Linting (errors and warnings) for Dockerfile files
  • Command Palette (F1) integration for the most common Docker commands (for example docker build, docker push, etc.)
  • Explorer integration for managing images, containers, registries, and more
  • Deploy images from a registry directly to Azure App Service
  • Debug .NET Core applications running in Linux Docker containers


  • This package requires Visual Studio Code 1.2.0 or newer. You can install either the vscode or vscode-insiders package.
  • The extension will be installed in any edition of Visual Studio Code which can be found.
  • The package always installs the latest version of the extension. The version of the Chocolatey package does not reflect the version of the extension.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
