VS extension checklist

Visual Studio Extensibility Checklist

Here is a list of things to make sure to remember before publishing your Visual Studio extension.

Adhere to threading rules

Add the Microsoft.VisualStudio.SDK.Analyzers NuGet package to your VSIX project, which will help you discover and fix common violations of best practices regarding threading.

Add high-quality icon

All extensions should have an icon associated with it. Make sure the icon is a high-quality .png file with the size 128x128 pixels in 96 DPI or more. After adding the icon to your VSIX project, register it in the .vsixmanifest file as both the Icon and Preview image.
