Xtending Business Application Studio : 4 of 3
When you publish extensions to the Open-VSX marketplace, they will appear in the EXTENSIONS plugin within BAS. So for a little encore, I created an extension that makes it even easier to perform the steps mentioned in blog post 1 (NOTROOT) and blog post 3 (Python).
Search for an extension that starts with Partner and select the SAP Partner Engineering BAS Installer extension.
Now that the installer extension is installed, it provides 2 new commands that you can find in the View -> Find Command… function. First, to install Python by typing BAS: Install Python. Open up the output and select the Python Installer occurrence to see that it completed without issues. Then verify that python is available by opening a new terminal and issuing the command.
Second, install NOTROOT by typing BAS: Install NOTROOT. Open up the output and select the NOTROOT Installer occurrence to see that it completed without issues. Then verify that NOTROOT is available by opening a new terminal and issuing the command.
Currently there is no uninstall option for Python or NOTROOT, but by packaging what is effectively some scripts into an extension, I can make it way easier to install these “and other” tools into BAS.
