Azure Pipelines YAML Validator
This extension allows you to validate your Azure DevOps YAML pipelines without commiting them from within VS Code.
From within a YAML file open the Command Palette (Ctrl+Shift+P) and select the 'Azure Pipelines YAML Validator: Validate' command, alternatively use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Alt+V on Windows and Ctrl+Cmd+V on Mac. Your YAML file will then be validated and any problems reported.
Please note that this extension sends YAML to a remote server for validation, YAML is not stored or inspected in anyway but you should still be aware of this.
YAML files which reference template files will not validate correctly.
Fixed issue with missing packages causing command not to work
Added the following vscode settings, these allow validation to be run against a user defined pipeline. This should enable validation of pipelines with variable groups or 3rd party (PAT that has 'Read & Execute' Build permissions).
Added keyboard shortcuts (ctrl+alt+v Windows, ctrl+cmd+v Mac)
