  • Attention! As of today, updating the VS Code Python extension automatically installs proprietary software on your computer!
    Alright, so this post was reported for having nothing to do with Free software. Reading the post a bit more, I'm going to direct users to use VSCodium (VSCode with all the Microsoft stuff stripped away) https://vscodium.com/ and to only install extensions that properly respect users freedoms and wishes.
    VSCodium is non-proprietary software.
  • As of today, updating the VS Code Python extension automatically also installs closed-source Pylance extension. This could really hurt the open-source Python ecosystem in the long run!

    If you want to be a purist, use VSCodium or something.
  • What do you use for writing rust code?

    editor itself is awesome but i agree the telemetry is shit but you can use vscodium. its same but ms telemetry ripped off.
  • Visual Studio Code now works on WINE 6.8

    Why'd you use VS Code for Windows on WINE instead of something like this
  • Abandon Microsoft. Return to IntelliJ
  • Remote Code Pairing with PHPStorm
    dev.to | 2021-05-07
    Remote pair programming tools have been around for some time – Saros, which is available for IntelliJ and Eclipse, has been in development since 2006 for example. One of the other IDEs we use at Jump24 is VSCode (or VSCodium, which is VSCode with Microsoft’s telemetrics reporting taken out) has several extensions available that also do remote sessions – CodeTogether is a solid choice in my experience.
  • Visual Studio Code April 2021
    Third, while not practical, it's possible to fork VSCode and take out whatever you feel is unnecessary. There are some projects that have done this already such as VSCodium. I've never tried them so YMMV.
  • Visual Studio Code April 2021 released with Electron 12, bringing Wayland support
    reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-05-06
    Remember, use the Open Source binary builds with stripped telemetry (VSCodium) instead of the proprietary branded Spyware!
  • Creating a Cute Pink Light Theme for PHPStorm / IntelliJ IDEA
    dev.to | 2021-05-03
    While I like VisualStudio Code (or rather Codium) as a quick and simple editor that fulfills most of my requirements as a web developer, there are reasons to use PHPStorm, like the Symfony and Shopware plugins.
  • Finally, I can install Linux... Need help with it
    Check out https://vscodium.com/ VSCodium is not a fork of vscode. It's the actual open source got, compiled so you don't have Microsoft's telemetry. (Microsoft adds telemetry in downstream in vscode)
  • GitHub blocks FLoC on all of GitHub Pages

    I've disabled all of it, but still have seen telemetry. Then I've found this this: https://github.com/VSCodium/vscodium/issues/623

    I'd like to say VSCodium and Git.
