A great text editor for free Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is a cross-platform (Linux, Mac OS, Windows) editor that can be extended with plugins to suit your needs. It has been re-engineered from the ground up to be kick-ass and light weight at only (45Mb with installer).

Compare this with  25 Gig Visual Studio Community Edition is a little to weighty for most.

Visual Studio Code Features

  1. A great full fledged editor, featuring syntax highlighting and autocomplete with IntelliSense, which provides smart completions based on variable types, function definitions, and imported modules.
  2. In-line debugging in any language Python, Java, Objective-C, Node.js, PHP
  3. Built-in GIT support
Max File Loading Size
With current release 1.15, the file size limit has been lifted on the 64bit releases of VSCode.

On the 32bit variants, the file size limit has been raised to 300 MB. Files over 20MB or with more than 300k lines will be treated especially, and some of the features will be turned off for them (e.g. tokenization, word wrapping, etc.) in order to save memory.
