Hi All,

Greetings for the day 🙂 LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL 🙂

Today we have very small article since I need to look into it so sharing. SHARING IS CARING 🙂

How to install Visual Studio Code on Linux / Ubuntu box

Background / Details :

  • I am studying / understanding DOCKER and KUBERNAETES for this I need to create docker image from scratch and trying simple NET CORE console application and this is the first step

To install we actually need to execute only one command 🙂 Folowing are the steps :

  • I have created UBUNTU vm on my free subscribed AZURE
  • Next step is to connect to our LINUX / UBUNTU box either using RDP or PuttY
  • Once we have successfully connected to LINUX box we are ready to install the Visual Studio Code
  • Here I am connecting to LINUX box using PuttY
  • There are couple of options to install Visual Studio Code on LINUX box
    • We could download Visual studio Code from https://code.visualstudio.com/download just select our appropriate OS
    • Visual Studio Code is also officially distributed as a Snap package in the Snap Store. This is the easiest way to install, just execute following command from the bash
sudo snap install --classic code # or code-insiders

  • Once installed, the Snap daemon will take care of automatically updating VS Code in the background
  • You will get an in-product update notification whenever a new update is available
