Visual Studio Code: A code editor developed by Microsoft
Visual Studio Code is based on Electron, a platform used to deploy Node.js personal computer applications running on the Blink layout engine. Although it uses the Electron platform, the software is not a derivative of Atom, it is actually based on the Visual Studio Online editor (codenamed "Monaco").
Unlike similar development environments like Visual Studio 2015, Visual Studio Code works entirely at the file and directory level. The editor is suitable for debugging and developing web and cloud applications, and supports more than 30 different programming languages, including C#, C++, PHP, Java, and HTML. Features like syntax highlighting, parenthesis matching, or IntelliSense provide more clarity when editing complex code.
Function of Visual Studio Code:
- Syntax highlighting: Batch, C++, Clojure, CoffeeScript, DockerFile, Elixir, F#, Go, Pug template language, Java, HandleBars, Ini, Lua, Makefile, Objective-C, Perl, PowerShell, Python, R, Razor, Ruby, Rust, SQL, Visual Basic, XML
- Snippets: Groovy, Markdown, Nim, PHP, Swift
- Improved source code: C#, TypeScript
