VS Code Extension Installation

Caution: VS Code Extension Deprecation
We decided to no longer support VS Code Extension from March, 2024. We recommend that you use the webOS Studio instead.

This article guides you on installing the webOS TV extension for Visual Studio (VS) Code.



The extension provides the same functions as the CLI (Command Line Interface) does. Therefore, you must install the latest version of CLI and configure the CLI path in the environment variable (WEBOS_CLI_TV) before using it.

To configure the environment variable, see CLI Installation.

Chrome browser

To debug your apps using Web Inspector, you must install the compatible Chrome browser (or Chromium) with the webOS TV's Chromium browser on your PC. Some versions of the Chrome browser, however, might not work appropriately.

The following table shows the compatible Chrome version by webOS TV version with the download link.
