How to Install Visual Studio Code on CentOS


Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code is a source code editor for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. As well as offering code editing functions, it also offers debugging, task execution, and version control. Visual Studio Code is a great everyday tool because it is so easy to open, edit, and compile code. In addition to highlighting syntax, bracket matching, auto-indentation, and box selection, Visual Studio Code supports a wide range of languages. Developers can test and write code at the same time using the software, which qualifies as an integrated development environment. Use Visual Code today to ensure the quality of your work. We’ll begin by installing Visual Code.
