Visual Studio Code Install on Linux

Finally summer 2020 has arrived. Today’s high is in the lower to mid 70s. Currently the sky is overcast. My wife and I prefer it sunny but the temperature is fine with me. My wife prefers hot and humid weather. Not everyone likes chocolate. We will probably keep the windows open all day. Living in Minnesota with long and cold winters, fresh air is always welcomed.

Yesterday we spoke over Jitsi with a couple of friends we both know since our teens. We have traveled abroad on several occasions with and without family. We were going to chat last Sunday (Father’s Day) but due to our schedules we postponed it until Monday. We found out that both have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are being treated as we speak. Their daughter, who lives with them, has not contracted the virus yet. They both looked tired so we limited our call to 20 minutes. Typically we go for a couple hours. Hopefully all will go well and they will have a short recovery!

Last week my wife and I made bomboloni. I grew up with this desert. The pastry was filled with dulce de leche. We fill them with pastry cream and / or dulce de leche. When we use pastry cream as a filling, my wife likes to fold the cream with Chantilly cream also known as whipped cream. It makes the filling silkier and tastier. You can find many recipes on-line. If you are interested I can provide you with my recipe. The trick with this desert is to get the dough to the proper consistency while in the mixer. It takes a few passes to get the bomboloni right.

OK, enough chit chat, let’s get to the main subject of this post. In previous post I have mentioned that I have run into issues when using VSCode and Python on Windows 10 machines. As a matter of fact, on one machine, VSCode crashes the computer when I attempt to run a program using the VSCode terminal. I have installed and uninstalled VSCode and Python but the issue persists. It is interesting that different versions of Visual Studio Enterprise Edition seem to work fine.

In some cases when using Python, you are required to build a library from source code. On Windows 10, after spending a lot of time and installing different toolkits, I have been able to get the programs to run. I have noticed that most people use Linux or Macintosh computers for development. In this post I will show what I did to install and update software to get to the point that I feel all is ready to build Python software on one of my Linux machines which uses CentOS 7.

I started preparing my Linux machine by locating the VSCode rpm package. I did so by doing a Google search. Once I located the package, I downloaded it to my Linux computer.

Complete!

After the installation I opened VSCode. It seemed that all was well so far so I closed the IDE.

# **** where is python installed ****
johncanessa@ceph1 ~]$ which python
~/anaconda3/bin/python

# **** get the python version ****
[johncanessa@ceph1 ~]$ python --version
Python 3.6.5 :: Anaconda, Inc.

I checked the location in which Python was installed. I fully understand you can have different Python versions on the same machine and are able to use them in different projects. At this time I just wanted to have one version. I also got the installed version of Python. With that information I decided to first update conda.

# **** update conda ****
[johncanessa@ceph1 Downloads]$ conda update --all

git version 2.24.1

Given that I like to keep my Git repositories up to date, I decided to also update git. I started by getting information about the current version installed on my machine. I then removed Git from my computer.

After getting the necessary RPM package I installed it. The new Git version is 2.24.1.

I checked my workspace and verified it was empty. I then cloned the repository associated with my CS50 2019 Lecture 6 – Python post.

I then started VSCode and opened the CS50Python folder. I selected the cough.py script. I then installed the Python extension for Visual Studio Code. Set the Anaconda version of Python to be used by VSCode.

When that was done ran a few Python scripts to verify that all was well. In the last screen capture I just showed running cough.py script.
