I'm a fullstack developer, Golang on the backend and NodeJS (VueJS to be more precise) on the FrontEnd. I've been all the time in the last 3 years, using only 1 IDE for both sides of the project. VSCode provides everything I need. I'm using .deb setup from official web.
This flatpack has many bugs, better use the official
It opened so many instances that my PC crashed too. Dont use that IDE.
Actually is very buggy. It was openning so many instances of visual studio code that crash my computer. I don't recommend. Install a .deb package from official microsoft site.
My favorite Visual Studio Code feature is that you're able to customize it yourself with it's vast extensions market. You can ensure that your programming environment is prepared for the languages you're using. I also love that you're able to install the hot-keys from other IDE's so you can jump into Visual Studio Code with ease.
Not sure why anyone would install the hobbled Flatpak version instead of just the official DEB. That's bonkers.
if you need to read this, dont install this unofficial version but the official version from snap store.
This is an an unofficial version of VS Code, it works but it has some flaws. For example, if you use the integrated terminal to run commands like "git commit --amend" it will not be able to find your defined code editor (like vim, code, or nano) Also commands like docker-compose or docker is does not find. I installed the official .deb package instead.
UNOFFICIAL. not recomended
Отличная сборка. Всё прекрасно работает!
Me resulto util, pero el inconveniente lo tuve al utilizar la terminal ya que no reconocia algunos comandos. si vas a utilizarla recomiendo instalar el .DEB de la pagina oficial.
Very buggy. Copy/Paste is unreliable. You cannot use any extensions that require access to external applications (like SVN) because the environment is chroot'ed and those external apps simply can't be found.
There are bugs! Install .deb from the oficial site.
not a recommendation. still buggy. i prefer to download from the official site.
This package caused me two days of headache. Built-in terminal in VSCode didn't recognized most of the system commands, and pretty much nothing worked as it should. My friendly advice is to not install this package, but to install official .deb package file from VSCode downloads page instead.
I love VS Code, but not a fan of this flatpak. Most things work like usual, but the things that do not work are very annoying. In terminal the "code" command does not work. Not all folders show up in nemo (file manager) when you "open new folder". Also if something does not work, because you need root, the pop-up asking you to try it as root won't work. In the version you can download from the offical website these things work.
Even if you have reservations towards Microsoft products, you should try this one! it is the best text editor/IDE hybrid. Just do not expect it to be a full substitute to IntelliJ (for Java) or Visual Studio (for .NET)
Started with Sublime text then Atom and relatively recently discovered Vscode with all the skepticism that brings a Microsft driven product...but it is really excellent with plenty of extensions, an intuitive interface. It might overtake Sublime text and Atom (love it)
