Visual Studio Code is a powerful development environment from Microsoft which serves for creating web and cloud applications. It has a small size and is very similar in functionality to Visual Studio. The program includes a lot of compilation tools and is "packaged" into a modern interface.
One of the most important features of this IDE is the ability to manage Git. It allows you to test assemblies, create "packages" and deploy a variety of software types. You may write code for a particular task in Visual Studio Code and then add it into the ready project and set it up using the correct argument. The user has at his disposal a huge library with templates, snippets and ready code fragments. If you wish, you can add your own elements to the library.
Visual Studio Code works with C#, F#, C++, Lua, Clojure, PHP, Perl, HTML, JSON, Visual Basic, Java, Python, SQL, XML and other languages. In addition, development on Node.js and ASP.NET is supported. Written code can be saved as a text file.
As we have already said before, Visual Studio Code has a very convenient modern interface. When working with the environment you can open several independent windows and panels with variables at once. The window can be divided into two parts with a code editor and a toolbar. This feature is very useful when comparing code. Microsoft allows developers to use Visual Studio Code absolutely free and without any restrictions.
