Recently I’ve been working on a Visual Studio extension to automate the tedious parts of code authoring at work. It turns out that there is a lot of knowledge out there, but quite spread. Here’s my try to get a somewhat short, end-to-end tutorial on how to create a new Visual Studio extension, with Roslyn, parse some code and then generate some more. I’ll assume you know nothing about Visual Studio extensions and Roslyn, but, at least, install Visual Studio SDK first.
Finally I got the blog setup with an HTTPS endpoint on Azure. I thought I would write up on the points that weren’t that straight forward. Get a free SSL certificate I used Let’s encrypt to generate me a free SSL certificate for the blog. It will provide you with a domain-validated certificate, which only vouches for the domain identity (good enough for a blog, if you ask me). To issue a certificate to a domain, they will challenge you to prove that you control the domain.
