Visual Studio Code is a free, open source editor for coding. It is cross platform and powered by thousands of extensions.


Features

Developed by Microsoft, VSCode includes many of the features associated with its big brother, Visual Studio.

These include:

  • IntelliSense smart completion
  • Built-in debugger with breakpoints, call stacks, and interactive console
  • Git and other SCM integration

VSCode is intentionally lighter weight in both design and goals, though many more complex workflows are provided by their extensive collection of extensions.

Install

Visual Studio Code is built on Electron framework, which contains some binaries. For this reason, it is not provided by official openSUSE repositories.

You can use Microsoft's repositories to install and update Visual Studio Code.

sudo rpm --import https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc

sudo sh -c 'echo -e "[code]\nname=Visual Studio Code\nbaseurl=https://packages.microsoft.com/yumrepos/vscode\nenabled=1\ntype=rpm-md\ngpgcheck=1\ngpgkey=https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc" > /etc/zypp/repos.d/vscode.repo'

sudo zypper refresh

sudo zypper install code
