Microsoft Releases Free Code Editor – Visual Studio Code

Yesterday, Microsoft released Visual Studio Code, a free code editor for building and debugging modern web and cloud applications. Microsoft’s new code editor joins Sublime Text, Atom and Brackets for developers using a regular code editor instead of a full IDE like Visual Studio or Eclipse. Downloads are available for OS X, Linux And Windows platforms. This lightweight and fast editor is built on Google’s Chromium engine and includes git integration, IntelliSense code completion, syntax highlighting, bracket matching, customizable keyboard shortcuts and debugging tools. More info available at Scott Hanselman’s blog post, Introducing Visual Studio Code for Windows, Mac, and Linux. For a list of code editors see my Code Editors page.
