Add New Project Category Tree in Visual Studio 2017

Rafal Kowalczyk 1 Reputation point

I want to add full new project category to my Visual Studio 2017 IDE, i.e.: similar for example to Visual C++ where You can have several categories + Cross Platform as another level of tree. I know how to create New Project or New Item but it is not what I'm looking for.

For example I want to create:

Visual ASM: (root)

--> ASM Desktop (1 level)
----> Console App (2 level)
----> Static Library (2 level)
----> Dynamic-Link Library (2 level)
--> ASM Virtual Machine (1 level)
--> ASM Test Unit (1 level)

looking for at leat 2 depth-level project categories tree - is there VSIX template for it? do I need to
code something manually? any ready to check example(s) @ GitHUB?

pls help
