Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is used by our team of developers for writing code. It solved the need of a well-rounded, well supported coding text editor. It has many plugins to support all the programming languages we need to develop in.


  • Well supported, with a large library of plugins to support extra functionality like code IntelliSense, integrate JSLint, and even its on console built in.
  • Can customize the layout/ color schemes to your liking.
  • Can be used for most common programming languages


  • Can be a little heavy after running for a long time. This can be caused if you have a lot of plugins installed.
  • Happy programmers. For some this is their preferred tool.
Visual Studio is top class in my opinion with its well supported community, large array of plugins/customization, and slick layout. I would put it up there with Sublime Text. Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code are excellent choices and you can' go wrong with either.
Almost perfect code text editor. Lightweight with the power of heavy IDEs. The only use is for programming. Do not use for writing plain text or looking at delimited files.
