In today’s tutorial, we will learn about the Virtual Studio Code IDE along with python setup. It is one of the most important tutorials of the python series. This tutorial is mainly focused on learning the VS Code.
IDE (stands for Integrated Development Environment) is a software application that combines all of the features and tools needed by a software developer. An IDE normally consists of a source code editor, debugger, and build automation tools. It is very important to have a good IDE for software development.
In this python series, we have to used the PyCharm IDE. As we know that the PyCharm IDE is the cross-platform editor developed by JetBrains. It is one of the best IDEs because it provides all the tools you need for productive Python development. But, the only problem with using this IDE is that we can use only the community version for free. For using the professional version, we have to pay.
Whereas Visual Studio Code is a free and powerful source-code editor that runs on your desktop. It is made by Microsoft for Windows, Linux, and macOS. Features include support for debugging, syntax highlighting, embedded Git, snippets, and intelligent code completion. It is written in ElectronJS technology.
Visual Studio is a heavyweight IDE, which is used for component-based software development tools and for building powerful, high-performance applications. Whereas the Visual Studio Code is a lightweight yet powerful IDE, that is used for building and debugging the modern web and cloud applications.
To learn more about Python in Virtual Studio Code, check the VS Code documentation for python.
