ZScript for vscode

Hello, I created a visual studio code extension to help everyone with writing ZScripts. It is way more than a simple zcommand autocomplete and text coloring.


  • Autocomplete
  • type checking
  • symbol (provide variable/routine defined in the document and in inserted zscript)
  • definition/declaration provider
  • color representation and color picker
  • provide information when hovering a symbol
  • relative path auto complete
  • Command Signature ( what argument the command want)
  • Code Snippets


The Extension in Action:

About Visual Studio Code

For the ZScripters that are not familiar with vscode, it’s a free, open source and all platform compatible
text editor maintained by Microsoft.

you can download it here: https://code.visualstudio.com/

Awesome! Really cool of you to create this!

This looks really useful! Thank you very much for sharing with the community - much appreciated! :+1:

I use VSC in my daily work - this is a big help! Thanks for sharing!

I have something to report.
In this image, routines after f3 for x < 0.0 appear to be hierarchically below f3.
If x <0.0 again at f5, f6 and f7 after f5 are not displayed in the IntelliSense item.
< seems to be the cause.
Is this a known issue?

Hello smilk !
