Earlier this week, I needed to run a web project that I was modifying in Visual Studio Code. I couldn’t use dotnet run or npm start as it was a classic ASP.NET application. What I really needed was to host it inside of IIS but I didn’t want to open up Visual Studio 2019 and run it there. I had not realized that someone ported IIS Express to Visual Studio Code. After a quick search, I found that someone was Warren Buckley. At over 65,000 installs and over 4.5 rating, it is definitely a beneficial add-on.
