    Create a Hello World VSCode Extension From Scratch

    Setting up a VSCode extension from an empty folder requires a few steps of configuration before you can get it up and running. Half of the steps involve setting up TypeScript while the other half is mapping your command name from the package.json to the extension file.

    This lesson walks you through creating a VS Code extension by starting with an empty folder and installing and configuring everything necessary to write a command that adds "hello world" to your current cursor position.
