Vim is KING but Visual Studo Code is a great IDE, the best product I have seen from Microsoft in years and is opensource!
I searched the internet found the following thread on FreeBSD forums.
Prashanth K. created a:
“Port of Electron and Electron Apps - VSCode, Atom, Lighttable for Freebsd.”
To have it up and running on your machine do the following:
- Head over to his github and download the latest VSCode release, at the time of this post is the following VSCode 1.26.0
- Extract it and enter the folder
- Some libs are missing from your systemm install the following:
pkg install speech-dispatcher-0.8.6 snappy-1.1.6 libxslt-1.1.32
- Now just run ./code-oss
If you have any doubts or questions ping me on freenode #freebsd #openbsd or efnet #dragonflybsd, nick dKade.
