Code is more often read than written
– Guido Van Rosssum
Microsoft, a company that have their very own tools and programming languages is now making it easier for developers to use their favorite language. This time Python have better support in the Visual Studio Code, more specifically in the IntelliSense autocomplete System.
Visual Studio Code is the source code editor that Microsoft released as Open Source and is available in Linux, Windows and MacOS. and thanks to the Python Language Server now have better support for Python. I mean, Python support has been there for a while, but is greatly improved by the PLS.
Useful for quick edits, maybe not a full featured IDE (I don’t know why it is called Web IDE instead of Web CodeEditor or something…) because it lacks of several features of the complete IDE, for instance you cannot do debugging in it, just an editor but still useful.
I like the idea that this “web IDE” is Open Source, is available for everyone and it will be integrated in many other parts of gitlab.

There is a reason for that. Python is
Pretty interesting for me considering that I have a really bad memory for functions, I use to program with the reference/module open and autocompletion does help, but having this is good.
What worries to me is the fact that Kite uses internet to be more accurate on what you type, so, it has to query about the modules you are writing, and since it have access to your editor there is a chance it is sending what you type over internet 😕.
But let’s face it, it will be the future… the young users will use it because it’s easy face it, new programmers are not used to code without a framework, why?, because it is easier!.
