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


The Application is best suited for the Desktop enviroment. It will work in any enviroment, but might look a bit out of place.

With Application you can:

  • Add reoccurring appointments
  • Tag your appointments
  • Setup various reminders (from pop ups to SMS).


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
