INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT ( IDE )
An Integrated Development Environment ( IDE ) is a software application that provides comprehensive facilities to computer programmers for software development. It enables programmers to consolidate the different aspects of writing a computer program.
IDEs increase programmer productivity by combining common activities of writing software into a single application: editing source code, building executables, and debugging. They facilitate this process with features like syntax highlighting and autocomplete ; despite of an editor which provides less functionality lacking an environment to run, test and debug your code under the same roof.
VISUAL STUDIO CODE
Visual Studio Code is a source-code editor developed by Microsoft for Windows, Linux and macOS.
Visual Studio Code is a streamlined code editor with support for development operations like debugging, task running, and version control.
It aims to provide just the tools a developer needs for a quick code-build-debug cycle and leaves more complex workflows to fuller featured IDEs, such as Visual Studio IDE. It includes support for debugging, intelligent code completion, snippets, embedded Git control and GitHub, syntax highlighting, and code refactoring. It is highly customizable, allowing users to change the theme, keyboard shortcuts, preferences, and install extensions that add additional functionality.
