Tool chain integration to Visual Studio Code

Hi, we are looking into the Nordic tool chain (esp. for uRF9160) integration to Visual Studio Code.

We found PlatformIO has the extension. However it only supports uRF51/52 and Arduino/Mbed framework. We need something to support uRF9160 for zephyr OS.

Any inputs and suggestions? We appreciate it!

  • Hi Adrian,


    There's not much new information since my original answer, ~7 months ago.

    VSCode is highly configurable, so it is possible to setup a environment that is able to configure, compile, flash, and debug. I personally use vscode for browsing code trees, as the C/C++ plugin with its auto-completion just works without any fuzz. NCS is also highly configurable in terms of the choice you have for compiling and developing, so if SES nordic edition isn't your preferred solution, you can use a CLI based setup or try to configure VSCode (or any other editor for that matter) to be a bit more zephyr/ncs friendly. I personally prefer the debugger functionality in SES compared to VSCode w/ cortex m debug (which is a fantastic plugin, but unfortunately inherits some issues in the engine itself:, as you get a better overview of register content etc.


    I will ofcourse register your feedback with our product management team.


    Kind regards,
