Run button for bash scripts / launch.json


I’m using the theia-full docker image
i have a working launch configuration for python.
with this, i have a green, run button to run the python script i’m working on.

however, i can’t seem to get a working bash launch configuration going.

the types “bash, shell, shellscript” aren’t recognized.

Am i missing something really obvious?
How do i get the run button for bash scripts?

@solipsist01 the theia-full docker image does not include any extensions that provides a runner for bash files similarly to how the python extension may contribute the run button. In order to have a similar feature, you’ll likely want to include an extension that provides the functionality, or create your own custom extension for your own application.

An alternative would be to use the following extension which does support bash files:
