Microsoft has made its VS Code development tool available in the browser, reducing the need to install the app.
VS Code is a popular programming IDE for Windows, macOS and Linux. The environment supports several different languages out of the box, and has the ability to support even more via extensions.
Although a lightweight version, VS Code for the Web is still a powerful environment that can be useful when a developer needs to work on a project without their usual setup. The web-based version is also an excellent option for developers who want to work on their iPad, which is not supported with the native version.
With the availability of vscode.dev, we begin to finally realize our original vision of building a development tool that can run fully serverless in the browser.
Developers can get started at https://vscode.dev/.
