Visual Studio Code
Visual Studio Code is a lightweight open source text editor available for all major operating systems. With VS Code, Microsoft aims to provide users with a streamlined code editor that supports debugging, code execution and version control. In that sense it is more limited than another product in Microsoft’s line of confusing naming conventions: Visual Studio IDE. This doesn’t mean however, that VS Code is inferior to other well established IDE’s. With smart code completion provided by IntelliSense; built-in git commands at your disposal and the ability to customize your environment with extensions; Visual Studio Code can be enhanced to act and feel like an IDE. It is a great alternative for small to medium coding projects.
