Hello,

I tried searching for that file but didn't find it, there's also no "vscode" script listed when running "mtxrun --script"

I installed using texlive on windows, is the script only shipped on the standalone installation?


If it's possible to create a fully fledged ConTeXt extension for vscode with these files, I would try to create it. I'm not that experienced with javascript, but I think I should be able to get some stuff done. You could also utlize some code from the existing LaTeX workshop extension ( https://github.com/James-Yu/LaTeX-Workshop ), since it features a pdf preview with working synctex.

Best regards,
Julian
