MSDN Magazine Article: Authoring an F#/C# VSIX Project Template

My MSDN Magazine article entitled Authoring an F#/C# VSIX Project Template is now available in the October 2011 issue of MSDN Magazine.

A big thanks to Elijah Manor, Rick Minerich, and Chris Marinos for reviewing the article!

You can find the online version at, the full code samples at, and an enhanced version of the associated VSIX on Visual Studio Gallery at F#/C# ASP.NET MVC 3 Empty Web Application Template (see this previous post for more information about the extension that is available on Visual Studio Gallery).


  1. Hi Daniel,

    Your F# for Windows Phone 7 template came in very handy for another project.

    I have done a visix extention for F#, called FSharpJump (outlines F# code and allows you to find and jump to a location quickly).

    The source may be useful to your readers wriitng extensions in F#/C#; there were some visix tricks that I had to learn along the way.

    Here is the link to the source:
