Visual Studio Code, accessible through the browser.
This add-on runs Visual Studio Code, allowing you to edit your Home Assistant configuration straight from the web browser and can be embedded straight into the Home Assistant frontend UI.
Visual Studio Code runs as a remote server using
code-server, and is a fully fledged VSCode experience.
The add-on has the Home Assistant and MDI icons extensions pre-installed and pre-configured right out of the box. This means that autocompletion works instantly, without the need for configuring anything.
The installation of this add-on is pretty straightforward and not different in comparison to installing any other Hass.io add-on.
Add our Hass.io add-ons repository to your Hass.io instance.
