CircleCI Releases VisualStudio Code Extension
December 07, 2022

CircleCI announced the general availability of the CircleCI VS code extension.

Visual Studio Code has a significant lead as the integrated development environment (IDE) of choice across all developers, largely due to its robust architecture and ease of use. With this extension, more teams have access to an interface to visualize and manage their CI/CD pipelines directly from their IDE.

CircleCI’s VS code extension aims to unblock developers and help them get their workflows running and increase their speed to deploy.

“The loss of productivity and developer focus caused by iterations and waiting time in the integration and deployment process is one of many examples that prove how unoptimized the whole software delivery process still is,” said Jean-Philippe (JP) LeBlanc, SVP of Engineering, CircleCI. “We believe this is our opportunity to help developers across different stages of their development journey, to make sure they can have feedback about their code as early as possible and can ultimately go from idea to software efficiently, frequently, and with confidence.”

Key benefits include:

- Access real-time information for faster decision making: By bringing key workflow status information in the code editor, the CircleCI VS Code extension enables developers to identify and address issues that require their attention promptly.

- Speed and agility with less context switching: The CircleCI VS Code extension reduces the time developers take to successfully deploy their code by surfacing actionable information. Developers can quickly identify flaws, fix them, and get their workflows running without switching away from their IDE.
