Microsoft is previewing an open source extension to its for building full-stack web applications. Called Microsoft Web Template Studio (WebTS),  the extension is intended to make it easy to build a cloud-based web app.

Developers can use WebTS to generate boilerplate code for a web application, choosing between different front-end and back-end frameworks, services, and pages. Key to the tool is a wizard to generate an application as well as a READMe.md and provide instructions on use.

WebTS was built using the and the . It takes inspiration from , which is for native Universal Windows Platform applications. WebTS gives developers four sets of options to build an app:

  • Project types, with full-stack applications the only currently supported type.
  • Framework options to use for front-ends and back-ends. Currently, React is supported on the front-end and Node.js on the back-end.
  • App page templates that provide common UI pages to accelerate development. Current templates include blank page, common layouts, and pages implementing common patterns such as grid or list. With the wizard, WebTS can add pages as needed, providing a name for each one.
  • Azure cloud services options, with Azure Cosmos DB and Azure Functions currently supported.

You can from the Visual Studio Marketplace. WebTS also can be . WebTS requires Visual Studio Code 1.33 or above. Node.js and NPM or Yarn are needed, as well, to run generated templates.
