Instructions for Installing VS Code on Manjaro
Hi Guys,

I couldn't find this anywhere else so I decided to post what I did. Hope it helps. This is not the legit, fully supported VS Code so use at your own risk I guess!

git clone

cd code-headmelted-bin
makepkg --install
EDIT: if you get something like:
==> ERROR: Cannot find the fakeroot binary.
==> ERROR: Cannot find the strip binary required for object file stripping.
you need to install dev tools...
sudo pacman -S base-devel
And that should be it! You can now open VS Code with command:

Happy coding.

Woops, I put this in Pinebook section instead of Pinebook Pro. I've only ever tried this on PBP so if you are on a Pinebook YMMV. Might need to re-move to the PBP section.
Thanks for pointing that out! Moved to PBP forums.
Or just run:
pamac build code-headmelted-bin

You guys are life savers! I would have loved to keep using sublime text but they don't give a crap about ARM Sad finally a fully featured editor that works!
I used to run this on the Pinebook without issue. No need to compile it for debian or suse users, as Jay has the binaries/repos up @

Nowadays I would probably use VSCodium, since that has arm and arm64 builds also.

ARM/ARM64 support is looking better for VSCode also in the new few months, since the C/C++ extension is looking at ARM, and then ARM64 support in the next releases... meaning VSCode + PlatformIO on ARM64 with intellisense, etc... opening up a lot of development options.
