The VS Code extension format is finding increasing adoption among development tools, most notably Eclipse Theia and all the projects that build on it. However, the official VS Code Marketplace may be used only with Microsoft products. Eclipse Open VSX aims at providing an extension registry for all tools that support that format. I will introduce you to the public instance of Open VSX, available at open-vsx.org, and explain how you can install your own instance to manage your organization’s in-house extensions.
