Click2cloud is the only company providing tools for Openshift in the Visual Studio Marketplace (formerly known as Visual Studio Gallery). From the number of downloads, I can tell that these tools are not popular and they differentiate very little between them (in other words, they all seem to do the same).
- Click2Cloud Visual Studio 2012+ Extension for Red Hat OpenShift 2 (142 downloads): this plugin allows you to deploy Windows nodes (to run .NET apps) in Openshift. This is for Openshift 2.x so I don’t look at it any further.
- Linux Cloud Tool for Visual Studio (252 downloads): this plugin provides similar functionality than the Openshift plug-in for Eclipse. In other words, you can create an application and configure the build/deployment config in Openshift. You can also complete the same tasks using the Openshift command line interface and/or the Openshift Web UI.
- Click2Cloud Docker Extension for Visual Studio (156 downloads): this plug-ins allows you to connect and pull images from docker registries. It also allows you to connect to a remote docker host to run containers. You can also deploy containers to Openshift 3. This plugin is similar to the plugin “Docker Tools plug-in 2.1 for Eclipse“.
- Click2Cloud Container Extensions for Visual Studio (566 downloads): this plugin provides similar functionality than the Openshift plug-in for Eclipse plus the Docker Tools plug-in 2.1 for Eclipse. This means that you can deploy apps to Openshift from Visual Studio and you can connect/pull images from Docker registries.
