Visual Studio Code is an open source code editor that combines the streamlined UI of a modern editor with rich code assistance and navigation and an integrated debugging experience – without the need for a full IDE.
At its core, Visual Studio Code features a powerful, fast code editor, one that is great for day-to-day use. The Preview release of Code already has many of the features developers need in a code editor, including navigation, keyboard support with customizable bindings, syntax highlighting, bracket matching, auto indentation, and snippets, with support for many languages.
Visual Studio Code includes a streamlined, integrated debugging experience, with support for Node.js debugging in the Preview and more.
Visual Studio Code supports Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and Electron/Atom Shell
