package.json - this is the manifest file in which you declare your extension and command. The plugin registers a command and defines its title and command name. With this information VS Code can show the command in the command palette.

src/extension.ts: this is the main file where you will provide the implementation of your command. The file exports one function, activate, which is called the very first time your extension is activated (in this case by executing the command). Inside the activate function we call registerCommand. We pass the function containing the implementation of the command as the second parameter to registerCommand.
You can relaunch the extension from the debug toolbar after changing code in src/extension.ts.
You can also reload (Ctrl+R or Cmd+R on Mac) the VS Code window with your extension to load your changes.
