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