Visual Studio Code
- Visual Studio Code
- Code editing. Redefined.
- License:MIT (proprietary branding)
Visual Studio Code is a new choice of tool that combines the simplicity of a code editor with what developers need for the core edit-build-debug cycle.
Developed by Microsoft, VSCode includes many of the features associated with its big brother, Visual Studio.
- IntelliSense code 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 and the official release contains some proprietary branding. 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 zypper addrepo https://packages.microsoft.com/yumrepos/vscode vscode sudo zypper refresh sudo zypper install code
It is also available via https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.visualstudio.code and as the fully open source version VSCodium (also available via https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.vscodium.codium).
Extension for the Open Build Service
OBS Connector is not available in VSCode marketplace anymore
SUSE has kicked off the development of the
SUSE.open-build-service-connector Open Build Service Connector, an extension that brings the Open Build Service into Visual Studio Code.
It provides users with the ability to bookmark and browse projects and packages on OBS, check them out locally, branch them and submit changes back. Furthermore, OBS' version control is integrated into the source control of Visual Studio Code.
