Add Azure WebJob in Visual studio should have support for console applications written in F#

I as money other is using F# more and more to write all types of applications, and now I've come to webjobs. It is possible to deploy F# console applications but you have to add the webjob-publish-setting.json file and the relevant nuget packages manually. This should be supported in the "Add Webjobs" dialogue. As it is now you can only add regular C# console applications, but it is no reason this limit exist since F# console applications works just as fine.

    Declining due to no planned future investments into VS tooling for F# from the WebJobs side. We have created a UserVoice item for VS located here: https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio-ide/suggestions/31263517-add-support-for-all-console-apps-being-published-a. Further communication of feature conversation should happen there.

    Thanks,

        Could you please tell me what are the other project types support by Webjobs other than console application.
        Since I need to access office 365 APIs, Office 365 APIs not support by console applications.
