Visual Studio Code is a lightweight but powerful source code editor that runs from your desktop. * It comes with built-in support for JavaScript, TypeScript and Node.js and has a variety of extensions available for other languages, including C ++, C #, Python and PHP.

It is based on the Github Electron, which is a cross-platform version of the Atom code editing component, based on JavaScript and HTML5. This editor is a full-featured integrated development environment (IDE) designed for developers working with Microsoft’s open cloud technologies.

Visual Studio Code uses .NET open source tools to provide support for the ASP.NET C # code, based on the Omnisharp .NET development tools and the Roslyn compiler.

It is easy to work with the interface, since it is based on a common browser style, with a panel on the left, which shows all the files and folders to which you have access, and an editor panel on the right, which shows the content of the files you have opened. In this sense, the editor has developed well and is pleasing to the eye. It also has good functionality, with intellisense and autocomplete that work well for JSON, CSS, HTML, {less} and Node.js.

Visual Studio Code has been designed to work with existing tools, and Microsoft provides documentation to help developers, along with help to work with Microsoft ASP.NET 5, Node.js and TypeScript, as well as tools that can be used to help to build and manage applications Node.js.

Visual Studio Code is really aimed at JavaScript developers who want a complete development tool for their server-side scripts and who want to venture from Node.js to .NET-based frameworks. However, in general, Visual Studio Code is a lightweight but solid cross-platform code editor, which can be used by anyone to create applications for the Web or the cloud.
