Creating a Source Control VSPackage
This documentation includes links to the architecture overview of a source-control package integrated with Visual Studio, the API that is defined by the interfaces to be implemented and the services to be consumed, and a sample that illustrates a simple source control package implementation.
The Source Control Package SDK provides a deep integration path for a source control package to integrate with Visual Studio. It enables the package to bypass the default source control UI hosted by Visual Studio, respond to source control requests from the project system, and interact with Visual Studio components such as Solution Explorer. The Visual Studio SDK empowers Visual Studio partners with a mechanism to create a special software component called a VSPackage that can integrate with Visual Studio using a service model. The Source Control Package SDK chalks out a path for creating a source control package.
