Community Ports ‘Visual Studio Code’ To Chromebooks, Raspberry Pi

An anonymous reader quotes InfoWorld:
A community build project led by developer Jay Rodgers is making Visual Studio Code, Microsoft’s lightweight source code editor, available for Chromebooks, Raspberry Pi boards, and other devices based on 32-bit or 64-bit ARM processors. Supporting Linux and Chrome OS as well as the DEB (Debian) and RPM package formats, the automated builds of Visual Studio Code are intended for less-common platforms that might not otherwise receive them. Obvious beneficiaries will be IoT developers focused on ARM devices — and the Raspberry Pi in particular — who will find it helpful to have the editor directly on the device they’re programming against… Rodgers said the lure of Visual Studio Code for him was its user-friendly interface, making it approachable for new users.
