Open Reactos code in Visual Studio Code

Post by q.michal »

Hello,

Anyone already tried opening ReactOS source code in Visual Studio Code?
I got a lot of errors about unknown keywords and I have no idea how to setup the include paths. Sometimes it does not see headers, sometimes sees 2 or more files with same name. Can anyone help with setting up this IDE?

Don't use it like IDE, just edit code in it like with usual Notepad..

That's the point - to use IDE as IDE.

Visual Studio Code is merely an editor which you can extend its functionality with plugins and whatnot. Don't expect it to be a fully fledged and complete IDE environment like Visual Studio hence no Microsoft Visual C++ (MSVC) compiler by default so no, you cannot use it as an IDE by this definition.

You can obtain it through a standalone Windows SDK in official Microsoft website though. Otherwise you can just use RosBE to compile ROS without a hassle.

I know it does not include a compiler, but as an IDE it should highlight and conplete syntax. But it warns about unknown keywords actually.
