Visual Studio is one of the most used tools for building and debugging modern web and cloud applications. Earlier this year Microsoft released Visual Studio Code.

Visual Studio Code has been built using a mix of web-based and open-source technologies, like Chromium and GitHub’s Electron app framework, and Microsoft’s own Monaco editor. Microsoft released this for free, and it released it for desktop Linux and Mac.

The best thing about VS Code, it is Open Source. This means Linux distributions will be free to package it up and distribute it in their package managers, too. Microsoft open-sourced much of the .NET server code earlier this year.

Visual Studio Code supports full syntax coloring and highlighting, bracket matching and lining, plus keyboard bindings and snippets.

It also provides Github integration, similar to that found in Google’s Chrome Dev Editor, and IntelliSense support powered by open-source projects for faster working (e.g., typo...

The way I've done it is as follows. Using a terminal:

Create a directory for the files and change to this directory:

mkdir msvs && cd msvs

The directory name is arbitrary.

Unpack the zip file in your new folder:

unzip ../Downloads/VSCode-linux-x64.zip

Run the ide using

./VSCode-linux-x64/code &

You can also create a desktop link so that you can start it directly from the desktop or double-click in nautilus.

To create a menu entry:

At the terminal, create a file

sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/MSVS.desktop

and copy and paste the following:

#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Exec=/opt/msvs/code Name=MSVS Icon=/opt/msvs/flurry_ios_visual_studio_2012_replacement_icon_by_flakshack-d5nnelp.png Categories=Development

In my case the executable resides inside /opt/msvs.

Yes, that Microsoft. Shocked?

A fair chunk of you will know that Microsoft — no hissing at the back — has released a cross-platform code editor that runs on Linux (as well as Mac OS X and Windows).

Visual Studio Code for Linux

Visual Studio Code has been been built using a mix of web-based and open-source technologies, like Chromium and GitHub’s Electron app framework, and Microsoft’s own Monaco editor.

The tool is a code editor first and foremost. It is not a fully fledged IDE (Integrated Development Environment) like its namesake Visual Studio.

But that’s the point; a score of OMG! Ubuntu! readers already use regular code...

During the installation if you think it has hung (notably during the "Android SDK Setup"), browse to your %temp% directory and order by "Date modified" (descending), there should be a bunch of log files created by the installer.

The one for the "Android SDK Setup" will be named "AndroidSDK_SI.log" (or similar).

Open the file and got to the end of it (Ctrl+End), this should indicate the progress of the current file that is being downloaded.

i.e: "(80%, 349 KiB/s, 99 seconds left)"

Reopening the file, again going to the end, you should see further indication that the download has progressed (or you could just track the modified timestamp of the file [in minutes]).

i.e: "(99%, 351 KiB/s, 1 seconds left)"

Unfortunately, the installer doesn't indicate this progress (it's running in a separate "Java.exe" process, used by the Android SDK).

This seems like a rather long-winded way to check what's happening but does give an indication that...
