The code component builder is a tool that enables you to build code components with ease where you do not need to write the CLI commands but still use the Microsoft Power Platform CLI under the hood. Most of the commands are consolidated, making it easier to build components.
There are two versions of the code component builder. Both of them are called PCF Builder and are listed below:
PCF Builder for XrmToolBox provides a graphical user interface that lets you create code components in visual manner using Microsoft Power Platform CLI.
PCF Builder extension for Visual Studio Code provides a guided experience that not only lets you create code components but you can preview code component inside of Visual Studio Code.
