What is Visual Studio Code?

Visual Studio Code is a distribution of the Code – OSS repository with Microsoft specific customizations released under a traditional Microsoft product license.
Visual Studio Code combines the simplicity of a code editor with what developers need for their core edit-build-debug cycle. It provides comprehensive code editing, navigation, and understanding support along with lightweight debugging, a rich extensibility model, and lightweight integration with existing tools.

Installation (amd64 only)

sudo apt update
sudo apt install code

or via APTus-> Office-> Visual Studio Code icon.

What is VSCodium?

This is not a fork (of Visual Studio Code). This is a repository of scripts to automatically build Microsoft’s vscode repository into freely-licensed binaries with a community-driven default configuration.
This repository contains build files to generate free release binaries of Microsoft’s VSCode. When we speak of “free software”, we’re talking about freedom, not price. Microsoft’s downloads of Visual Studio Code are licensed under this not-FLOSS license and contain telemetry/tracking.

Installation (amd64 and ARMHF)

sudo apt update
sudo apt install codium

or via APTus-> Office-> VSCodium icon.
