5 Key Features of VS Code, the Official Microsoft Editor for Linux


I hadn’t used the official Microsoft editor for a long time, but with the new release of Visual Studio Code (VS Code), I thought it was a good idea to revisit it.

For those who don’t know, VS code is a source code editor, so it’s different from Visual Studio.

The latter has a lot more features and is used by developers to build Windows apps using languages such as C

The Visual Studio Code team, in cooperation with other teams at Microsoft, has released a new version of Visual Studio Code that runs natively on the ARM64 architecture. This brings a full-featured code editor to Windows 10 on ARM, which Microsoft is pushing as an alternative to Intel chips.

The 1.50 release is available today as a preview release. This means it’s still under active development and may not work correctly or reliably in every situation. If you’re interested in trying it out, download it from the Visual Studio Code website, where you can also find installation instructions and requirements.

The editor already supports Linux ARM32 and ARM64 architectures (and of course x64). This new release makes Visual Studio Code available for both Intel and ARM64 versions of Windows 10 on ARM devices.

Visual Studio Code is Microsoft’s newest editor. It’s a free, open source editor that runs on Mac, Linux, and Windows. It has many more features than your basic text editor and can be used by developers to edit code files.

The beauty of VS Code is that it’s very extensible, so that developers can add new functionality using plugins from the VS Code Marketplace.

Here are five of the most interesting features you can add to VS Code for a better development experience:

Visual Studio Code is a cross-platform code editor developed by Microsoft. It has a variety of extensions for other languages (such as C++, C

Visual Studio Code is the first code editor, and first cross-platform development tool – supporting OSX, Linux, and Windows – in the Visual Studio family. At its heart, Visual Studio Code features a powerful, fast code editor great for day-to-day use. The Preview release of Code already has many of the features developers need in a code and text editor, including navigation, keyboard support with customizable bindings, syntax highlighting, bracket matching, auto indentation, and snippets, with support for dozens of languages.

But a code editor is more than just a tool for editing your files. It also needs to help you stay organized and focused on the task at hand – whether that’s leading a team through a project or just working on your own. Here are five ways VS Code helps you do just that:

As you probably already know, Microsoft recently released a version of Visual Studio Code (VS Code) that runs on Linux.

The VS Code team has been doing a lot of work to add features to the editor and we regularly release updates. In this post, I want to highlight some key features of VS Code that I have found to be particularly useful as a Linux user:

1. Automatic Type Acquisition

2. Find All References

3. Peek Definition

4. Integrated Terminal

5. Built-in Git support

Visual Studio Code (VSCode) is a cross-platform text and source code editor from Microsoft. It’s available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

In this article, I’ll provide an overview and some examples of how you can use VS Code to improve your development productivity on the Linux platform.

Note: This article assumes that you already have Visual Studio Code installed on your system. If you don’t, please refer to my previous article [1] for instructions.

1. Using Remote SSH Hosts

One of the most useful new features in VS Code for Linux users is the capability to work with remote files using the OpenSSH based protocol (SFTP). You can connect directly to a remote host using Secure Shell (SSH) and edit remote files locally, or even transfer files between local and remote hosts without ever leaving the comfort of your text editor [2].

To get started, you need to install the Remote Development extension pack [3] in VS Code by pressing Ctl+Shift+X, then type “remote” in the search box at the top of the Extensions pane. Scroll down until you see the Remote Development extension pack in the search results list; click Install.
