With the Release of SharePoint Framework (SPFX), the Development Pattern itself has been changed. To accommodate the latest development trend, Microsoft has released the light weight version of the Visual Studio called “Visual Studio Code”. It has been released sometime back. But, now with the new client side scripting strategy, this has become the important IDE for the developers. I don’t say that we don’t require Visual Studio anymore. But, for the light weight webparts, Visual Studio Code is fine.

Now, let us see how to install Visual Studio Code.

1. Go to the Download Center – https://visualstudio.com/downloads.
