Visual Studio Code?

I see MS is developing Visual Studio Code for all three platforms (https://code.visualstudio.com/download).  Has anyone used VSC as an IDE for Intel Fortran, or is VSC just a text editor?

Thanks!

See the companion forum for Windows and ton of discussions about Visual Studio IDE:

https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-visual-fortran-compiler-for-windows

Also, look in Intel Fortran documentation:

https://software.intel.com/en-us/fortran-compiler-18.0-developer-guide-and-reference-using-microsoft...

Code::Blocks and Visual Studio are my preferred IDEs for use with Fortran.

I think Visual Studio debugger is undoubtedly the BEST when it comes to native coding i.e., with Fortran, C, and C++.

So it is good to see the Microsoft initiative with Visual Studio, they need to really really develop and market Visual Studio further on all platforms

Yes, I do most of my development under Windows using Visual Studio, and post my questions on that other forum.  However, "Visual Studio Code" (note that last word, and see the link I posted) is not Visual Studio.  Visual Studio Code runs on Windows, Linux and Mac.  It is not clear to me if MS plans to extend Visual Studio Code to be like Visual Studio, so I was wondering if anyone is using Visual Studio Code on a Linux box using Linux Intel Fortran, as I do all my production runs under Centos once developed under Windows.  I'm also interested if Intel plans to integrate VSC with Intel Fortran.

cheers

At this time there are no plans to support Visual Studio Code, but we don't keep you from using it.  We haven’t done any testing, so we don’t know what does and doesn’t work.

Maybe the plans have changed since 2017? Please let us know.

I am not sure how widespread VSCode is, but it's most popular fortran extension has more than 37K unique installs.

As Visual Studio Shell is no longer included in the compiler package, I am also very interested in knowing if Visual Studio Code support/integration is planned.

This is the Linux and Mac forum. VS Code is a Linux and Mac generic IDE. On Windows, Microsoft has discontinued VS Shell but VS Community can be used instead. On Linux/Mac, the prerequisite is gcc.
