Are there any tutorials on how to use MS Visual Studio Code to write contracts in solidity?
Not sure on specific VS tutorials, but this is a generic tutorial for solidity: http://solidity.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
which should work on: https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/96221853-33c4-4531-bdd5-d2ea5acc4799
Press Ctrl + P and type "ext install ". Note: The trailing space. Type "Solidity", click in the extension and you are done.
You can find it also in the Visual Studio Code Marketplace
Note: The bug on the Linux version of Visual Studio Code, has been fixed in the latest version. Many thanks to @dotnetjunkie for your help.
To install the latest version:
- Press F1
- Type ext update
- Select solidity
