Microsoft Visual Studio Code Now Has Official Support For Raspberry Pi

VS Code is now available for both Linux ARMv7 and ARM64 architectures. This means you can now officially use VS Code on a Raspberry Pi.

Microsoft Visual Studio Code is one of the most popular pieces of programming software on the planet. One missing piece was ARM support for Linux devices, but with the latest update, 1.50, that’s been rectified.

An official Microsoft build of the Visual Studio Code editor is now available for Linux Armv7 and Arm64 architecture devices, extending Microsoft’s popular cross-platform code editor to Chromebooks, the Raspberry Pi and rival Arm-based single-board Linux computers such as Odroid.

While the Raspberry Pi and Chromebooks might not be powerful enough for all developer needs, Microsoft notes that VS Code’s remote development extension pack can provide access to more powerful development environments when needed.

VS Code support for Linux Armv7 and Arm64 arrives in the new, version 1.50 release of Microsoft’s open-source code editor for Windows 10, macOS and Linux.
