Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing an editor or IDE, part of Learning Python.
- [Instructor] There are a lot of great tools out there…for working with the Python programming language,…but in this course I'm going to be using Visual Studio Code.…It has great support for Python editing, it's free,…and it runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux.…It also has a wide variety of plugins available,…which will help when working with Python.…If you want to use VS code along with me in this course,…then download and install it from code.visualstudio.com.…Once you have it installed, launch it…and then click on the extensions icon.…
So here in my copy of Visual Studio Code…I'm going to go to the Extensions panel,…and then here in the search box type in the word Python.…So the extension that you're looking for…is this one here made my Microsoft.…Now, I've already got it installed…and you can see that it has a great rating…and a large number of downloads.…Now, it's not absolutely necessary…for you to use this plugin, but I like it…because it adds support for debugging…and running Python apps right from within VS code.…
