Confirming many other studies, trackers and surveys, a new open source project tracker lists Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code as the top code editor, clocking in at No. 11 on the list of most popular and fastest-growing GitHub projects.
This ranking comes from Two Sigma Ventures, which launched the new Open Source Index last week. Right now (March 31), the index shows the TensorFlow machine learning framework at the top. In addition to VS Code at No. 11, other notable products from Microsoft — which has made much of its 180-degree turnabout embrace of open source years ago — include TypeScript (No. 15); ASP.NET Core (No. 24); and PowerShell (No. 40).
