- Npm bundle for the Python extension API
- Error-tolerant Pytest discovery
There’s now a Dev Container within the supply repo of the Python extension. Utilizing this personalized dev container, contributors can open the Python extension repository in GitHub Codespaces, and begin engaged on growing and testing the Python extension with no different set up required. Since we’ve enabled pre-builds, the Dev Container will load immediately.
Python variations 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, 3.10, and three.11 are pre-installed so you’ll be able to readily change between Python variations utilizing pyenv. The dev container can also be configured to put in any required extensions for growth, together with Pylance and Black formatter extensions.
The brand new Debugpy extension now supplies a “Python File with Arguments”

Within the meantime, you’ll be able to proceed to choose in or out of the rewrite with the
We now have additionally added small enhancements and stuck points requested by customers that ought to enhance your expertise working with Python and Jupyter Notebooks in Visible Studio Code. Some notable modifications embody:
- Import decision errors present extra details about the atmosphere in use (@pylance-release#4368).
- Removing of the Create Atmosphere button in dependency recordsdata shall be rolled out to 100% of customers based mostly on suggestions (@vscode-python#20982).
