Facebook announced that it had chosen Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code as its default development environment within the company. In fact, before moving to VS Code, Facebook had its own development environment called Nuclide. Today, Facebook is moving Nuclide capabilities to Visual Studio Code and is building extensions to improve Facebook’s development workflow.
It is reported that although Facebook developers will install Visual Studio Code locally on their laptops, most of the development is done directly on a separately reserved development server. Therefore, VS Code should have seamless access to the code on these servers.
To meet this demand, Facebook has developed a remote development extension of VS Code in-house. Facebook announced that it will share its use of the remote development extension with Microsoft and will help Microsoft further improve vs. Code’s native remote development extension.
