Visual Studio Code extension for Invoke
Invoke is a Python (2.7 and 3.4+) task execution tool & library, drawing inspiration from various sources to arrive at a powerful & clean feature set.
This VS Code extension lets you execute tasks directly from your editor.
Use the command palette (
CMD + SHIFT + P) and type
invoke. Once you call the extension, a list of all tasks available will be displayed. Select the one you want to run. If your task requires any argument you can specify them next.

tasks.py file at the top level of the folder that file is in
- Otherwise the extension will use the first
tasks.py file found at the top level of the folders in the Workspace.
Invoke needs to be installed on your system. If the
invoke command is not available in your path you can use the user settings variable
vsc-invoke.invoke.cmd to define the path where
invoke lives. This is the path to the
invoke command (including
invoke itself) that a shell should know to execute. This alaso allows you to specify a different name for the
invoke command if it is installed under a different name on your system (e.g.
Added debug info to display error when failing to load tasks
Added logic to try to discover a
tasks.py file when there are multiple folders in the Workspace
Introduced used setting
vsc-invoke.invoke.path to define path to
invoke command if it's not available in your path
vsc-invole.invoke.cmd to include the full path to
invoke. Fixed a few gugs.
invoke version 1.x or better (technically 0.23.0 or better will work) to leverage the new JSON output format for tasks list
Handles more complex tasks definition that use collections
