Visual Studio Code Extension

Task has an official extension for Visual Studio Code. The code for this project can be found here. To use this extension, you must have Task v3.23.0+ installed on your system.

This extension provides the following features (and more):

  • View tasks in the sidebar.
  • Run tasks from the sidebar and command palette.
  • Go to definition from the sidebar and command palette.
  • Run last task command.
  • Multi-root workspace support.
  • Initialize a Taskfile in the current workspace.

To get autocompletion and validation for your Taskfile, see the Schema section below.

Task for Visual Studio Code


This was initially created by @KROSF in this Gist and is now officially maintained in this file and made available at This schema can be used to validate Taskfiles and provide autocompletion in many code editors:

Visual Studio Code

To integrate the schema into VS Code, you need to install the YAML extension by Red Hat. Any Taskfile.yml in your project should automatically be detected and validation/autocompletion should work. If this doesn't work or you want to manually configure it for files with a different name, you can add the following to your settings.json:

// settings.json
"yaml.schemas": {
"": [

You can also configure the schema directly inside of a Taskfile by adding the following comment to the top of the file:

# yaml-language-server: $schema=
version: '3'

You can find more information on this in the YAML language server project.
