Decent Development IDE on ARM platform

Can we please get support for a decent IDE on ARM?
Like can we get Microsoft Visual Studio Code

or GitHub’s Atom

Hell, just get Snapcraft’s snapd

working so we can Install the aforementioned IDEs ourselves.

I think the blossoming ARM arch is the most in need of development tools.
I know there is Geany, but it’s limiting compared to the more popular tools.

Please someone for the sake of the source bring this into existence for us!


I just installed Code via the Headmelted repos. I followed the instructions here: and it seems to work. I haven’t tested it much (besides installing some extensions).

I just wanted to let you know so you could try it out.
