Visual Studio Code Portable is the Visual Studio Code text editor packaged with a PortableApps.com launcher as a portable app, so you can browse in privacy on your iPod, USB flash drive, portable hard drive, etc.
It has all the same features as Visual Studio Code, plus, it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on, so you can take it with you wherever you go.
VSCode is free (MIT license), open source and cross-platform by Microsoft; built with Electron. The vanilla program (not the portable version) writes to the user profile folder, etc.
It looks/works a lot like Atom (eg, command palette), and is in fact portabilised by the same person.
Uncompressed, VSCode Portable weighs in at 114Mb.
- IntelliSense ("smart completions based on variable types, function definitions, and imported modules.")
- Extensible ("add new languages, themes, debuggers, and to connect to additional services. Extensions run in separate processes, ensuring they won't slow down your editor.")
- Built-in Git commands.
- In-editor debugging ("launch or attach to your running apps and debug with break points, call stacks, and an interactive console.)
