Visual Studio 2017 template for Chrome extensions

I have decided to build a Google Chrome extension and I was disappointed to find out that Visual Studio 2017 does not come with such a template. Then, I went to Google for templates and same result – nothing I can just say Project > New and start coding.

So, I figured I need to create a template and access to everyone in my position. I know it is just a few files but I thought the Visual Studio intellisence in JavaScript as well as Google Chrome API would be a huge benefit.

Here is a link to the project on GitHub. You can just download it and modify it for your needs.

If you start new projects often, you can justĀ download the template file I have created. Put it in your “…Documents/Visual Studio 2017/My Custom Templates” and you can start a new project via File > New.

Good luck!
