Visual Studio Code Extension for Arduino is now open sourced

We are glad to share the news that the Visual Studio Code Extension for Arduino has been open sourced on at!

The Arduino extension fully embraces the Arduino developer community and is almost fully compatible and consistent with the official Arduino IDE. On top of it, we added the most sought-after features, such as IntelliSense, Auto code completion, and on-device debugging for supported boards.

Here is a list of the core functionalities:

  • IntelliSense and syntax highlighting for Arduino sketches
  • Verify and upload your sketches in Visual Studio Code
  • Built-in board and library manager
  • Built-in example list
  • Built-in serial monitor
  • Snippets for sketches
  • Automatic Arduino project scaffolding
  • Command Palette (F1) integration of frequently used commands (e.g. Verify, Upload…)
  • New Integrated Arduino Debugging

For Arduino extension users, you can directly download and install the extension from Visual Studio Code Marketplace at:
