Microsoft Visual Studio Code (VS Code)

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

VS Code 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.

VS Code is openly extensible and many extensions are available.

In Anaconda Navigator version 1.7 or higher, use the VS Code tile on the home screen to install or launch VS Code.

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

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