Visual Studio Code for Mac 1.17.1

By Microsoft  (Freeware)
User Rating

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

Visual Studio Code for Mac is an integrated development environment (IDE) and the main focus with this version is it is clearly leaning towards being lightweight. Visual Studio Code launches in a matter of seconds, and the auto-complete function is fast. All settings for the IDE are project-based and JSON files, and the search interface is really powerful, responsive and supports Regex.

Visual Studio Code for Mac has been developed well, is aesthetically pleasing and has good functionality with intellisense and autocomplete working well for JSON, CSS, HTML, {less}, and Node.js. The only downsides to this editor we can find is that support for other languages in this regard, such as PHP, seems somewhat lacking as you only get syntax highlighting.

Visual Studio Code for Mac is really being targeted at JavaScript developers who want a fully-fledged development tool for their server-side scripting and who may want to venture from Node.js to .NET-based frameworks. Overall though, Visual Studio Code for Mac, is a lightweight yet solid, cross platform code editor, which can be used by anyone to build apps for the Web or the cloud.

*Versions for Windows OS and Linux are also available.
