Microsoft Visual Studio Code (VS Code)#

Anaconda Distribution works with Visual Studio Code (VSCode), Microsoft’s lightweight and fast open-source code editor.

VSCode is free for both private and commercial use, runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux, and includes support for linting, debugging, task running, version control and Git integration, IntelliSense code completion, and conda environments.

VSCode is openly extensible and many extensions are available.

In Anaconda Navigator version 1.9.12 or higher, after you install VSCode on your computer, use the VSCode tile on the Home page to launch the application.

When you launch VSCode from Navigator, VSCode is configured to use the Python interpreter in the currently selected environment.

In addition to VSCode, Anaconda fully supports Spyder, Jupyter Notebook, and other IDEs.
