Extending IDE capabilities with OpenVSX extensions

By default, Cloud IDE ships with built-in plugins that are managed by Acquia. Therefore, you cannot install or remove them.

On the contrary, you can install extensions from the Open VSX registry, which is a vendor neutral, open source marketplace for VS Code extensions.

Note

Acquia does not endorse or support third-party extensions from the Open VSX registry.

  1. In the menu bar, click on View > Extensions.

  2. In the Extensions panel, in the Search box, type the name of the extension that you want to install.

  3. Click Install.

  4. (Optional) To uninstall the extension, click Uninstall.
