Using the Initializer idea, add an extension to Visual Studio that offers a wizard-like experience to create new projects with custom dependencies. The extension allows for internal Initializer instances and automatically discovers added (internal) dependencies. To get started, simply download the extension through the Visual Studio marketplace or fork the project and make it your own.
Following the 12-factor app, "Dev/prod parity" is one of the tough principles to follow. It's impossible to recreate the exact network/environment your app will be offered in production. But through the magic of Docker, we can simulate a containerized environment locally. The Steeltoe CLI project aims to help with that experience, while still developing in Visual Studio (or your IDE of choice).
