Visual Studio Code - i want to get it to work with the ESP8266 

Question

Visual Studio Code - i want to get it to work with the ESP8266 


which extensions do i need to add? 

 


The whole design of Visual Studio Code is so that it should be easily be configured for any development language using these extensions.

do i need to install the Arduino IDE? 


if i am able to go roound the Arduino IDE  - i would be happy. 


Like most of the IDE's I have tried, they rely on the Arduino IDE for all the libraries. - but if i am able to work with VS-Stidio-Code and ESP 8266 directly i would be happy.

 

how to set it up  and to make sure that i have fully configured Visual Studio Code to work with all the necessary  add-on for ESP8266 

which extensions i should add and install? 

 

note: i am on Windows 7

I believe you would still need the Arduino IDE as that also includes the compiler toolchain.
