Angular/CLI is an excellent utility for scaffolding Angular application. While building any Angular application, I always had to switch to integrated terminal or separate command prompt for firing ng-cli commands and then comeback to VS code editor and resume coding.
To resolve this pain point, I have published Visual Studio Code extension.
Inline Angular-CLI commands - Visual Studio Marketplace
Extension for Visual Studio Code - Angular (v6+) + Angular/Cli commands. Run angular-cli commands inside editor
Once you have installed this extension, you can type any valid angular/cli command in anywhere in Visual Studio Code. As you select typed angular/cli command and launch extension then
- angular/cli command will be fired in integrated terminal
- typed angular/cli command will be deleted
- focus will be resumed to previous cursor location in text editor.
