TACO is available for Visual Studio Code
I like Visual Studio Code a lot and it’s nice to see that they’re also bringing over the advanced features to VS Code as well.

Microsoft has a GitHub page where they host Apache Cordova samples
Microsoft has a lot of good sample projects on GitHub which I tend to forget about. On their Cordova samples page they have samples showing AngularJS and Cordova, Cordova Hooks (like MSBuild but for Cordova), TypeScript and Cordova, unit testing and more.

Cordova Simulate – Simulate plugins in the browser
This is a fairly new project by Microsoft. Cordova Simulate is similar to Ripple which the Apache foundation unfortunately won’t support any more going forward. Cordova Simulate lets you simulate your mobile apps in the browser, and the good part is that it also helps you simulate Cordova plugins that use native capabilities such as camera, battery status, contacts and so on.
