Greetings,

I am looking for an alternative in Free Software to VSCode. I am trying to become more familiar with Free Software in my day-to-day activities, however editors like Vim or Emacs still hurt my head.

In searching I discovered the old post linked above.

Has anyone here used the seemingly FOSS version, Codium?

I would appreciate users thoughts and experiences.

I use VSCodium and Vim. VSCodium is is the VSCode version free of Micr*soft telemetry. Its work fine. Most plugins are used without any problems.

If you want to try something similar, Eclipse is popular and in Trisquel's repository.

@bozkurtovski good to know, thanks for the response! I've installed it and had a quick look around, seems the same minus telemtry. Note that the official addons are missing as well, not sure what they would normally be licenced under from the vendor?

@magic-banana thanks for the tip, hadn't come across that one. Will check it out!

Hi @joshaspinall I had a similar question to you about a free version of VSCode and was also planning on trying VSCodium. I'm just wondering how you installed it? I've heard Snap is not recommended because they suggest installing propriety software. Thank you :)

Add GPG key:
wget -qO - https://gitlab.com/paulcarroty/vscodium-deb-rpm-repo/raw/master/pub.gpg | gpg --dearmor | sudo dd of=/usr/share/keyrings/vscodium-archive-keyring.gpg

Add the repository:
echo 'deb [ signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/vscodium-archive-keyring.gpg ] https://paulcarroty.gitlab.io/vscodium-deb-rpm-repo/debs vscodium main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/vscodium.list

Update repositories and install vscodium:
sudo apt update && sudo apt install codium

Taken from official VSCodium page. That's the method I used for installing the program.

Greetings.

Thank you so much @jlb :) sorry for being a complete noob I'm still getting to grips with Trisquel having using windows/mac all of my life.
