AutoTerminal – A VS2019 extension.

A friend of me had a little rant while developing an Angular app on a .NET Core backend. Whenever you had to run the npm run E2E command or any other npm or ng command, you had to right click on the folder node in solution explorer, open with file explorere, open cmd and maybe navigate to the right directory (cd ..).

This made me think of another fun little project to work on. Figuring out a way to open the terminal directly in the directory you want, straight from Visual Studio’s solution explorer. Just right click a folder, click ‘Open Terminal’ and there it is.

You can get it from the Marketplace & the source code is at GitHub.
