Microsoft revealed the web-based version of its Visual Studio Online and the Visual Studio 2019’s version 16.4 Preview 3 at the Ignite 2019 conference.
We already know that Microsoft’s plans about a web-based version of its Visual Studio IDE. The service is based on Microsoft’s popular free and open-source code editor, Visual Studio Code. Visual Studio Online supports the extensions, along with Visual Studio Code workspaces and IntelliCode. Visual Studio Online focuses on allowing developers to make quick edits or reviewing the code online via the Live Share session.
IntelliCode and Live Share
For a developer, it is essential to use an enhanced code editor. IntelliCode has been helping the developers for a very long time with its rich features. Visual Studio IntelliCode helps enhance individual productivity by instilling intelligence into the IDE. It does this by making things like auto-completion smarter, based on an understanding of how APIs are used across thousands of open-source GitHub repositories.
Visual Studio Live Share facilitates real-time collaboration by enabling developers to edit and debug together, from the comfort of their favorite tools. Visual Studio Online also has a rich code navigation experience to improve asynchronous collaboration and enable developers to review PRs via multi-repo, cloud-based language services deeply.Development News
