Python in Visible Studio Code – March 2024 Launch

We’re excited to announce the March 2024 launch of the Python and Jupyter extensions for Visible Studio Code!

This launch consists of the next bulletins:

  • New Add Imports Code Motion heuristics setting
  • Mechanically begin your browser when debugging Django or Flask apps
  • Shell integration for the Python REPL
  • Language assist for regionally operating Jupyter servers

In case you’re , you possibly can examine the complete listing of enhancements in our changelogs for the Python, Jupyter and Pylance extensions.

The Add Import Fast Repair (💡) , triggered when there are lacking imports in your Python undertaking, has been improved within the pre-release model of the Pylance extension! Pylance now makes use of heuristics to point out solely the highest 3 high-confidence import choices, prioritized based mostly on: most lately used imports, symbols from the identical module, symbols from the usual library, symbols from person modules, symbols from third-party packages, and at last sorting by module and image identify. Within the case the place the three high-confidence import choices aren’t what you might be in search of, Pylance launched a brand new Code Motion, Seek for further import matches, which shows a fast decide menu that permits you to seek for import choices that prefix-match the lacking import image.

Moreover, Pylance launched the Change spelling Code Motion, which affords import solutions for lacking imports attributable to typos.

Fix code spelling Code Action with Pylance.


We plan to allow this new conduct by default quickly. Nonetheless within the meantime, you possibly can allow it now by setting python.evaluation.addImport.heuristics : "true" in your settings.

Creating and testing your Python internet functions is now extra handy with the Python Debugger extension! Now you can get the browser to robotically open when beginning the debugger with Django or Flask apps, by setting autoStartBrowser: true in your launch.json configuration:

    "identify": "Python Debugger: Flask",
    "kind": "debugpy",
    "request": "launch",
    "module": "flask",
    "env": {
        "FLASK_APP": "hello_app.webapp",
        "FLASK_DEBUG": "1"
    "args": [
    "jinja": true,
    "autoStartBrowser": true

Auto start browser for web apps using the Python debugger extension.

We now have shell integration for Python REPL enabled on Mac, Linux and Home windows (when utilizing the WSL extension). When executing instructions within the Python REPL, coloured circle decorators will point out whether or not the instructions succeeded or failed. This additionally permits assist for the Terminal: Run Current Command command, permitting you to view and make the most of the REPL’s command historical past. Moreover, this function permits entry to Python’s shell file historical past for all working programs through Terminal: Run Current Command.

Shell integration support for the Python REPL.

Beforehand, when connecting to native Jupyter servers, the Jupyter extension handled these servers as distant, and in consequence the Pylance extension was unable to detect the put in packages. On this iteration, we made modifications in order that the Jupyter extension detects whether or not the related Jupyter server is native or distant, and in consequence Pylance is now capable of present richer language options based mostly on packages put in inside an area Python setting.

Now we 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:

We’d additionally like to increase particular due to this month’s contributors:

As we’re planning and prioritizing future work, we worth your suggestions! Beneath are a couple of points we’d love suggestions on:

Check out these new enhancements by downloading the Python extension and the Jupyter extension from the Market, or set up them immediately from the extensions view in Visible Studio Code (Ctrl + Shift + X or ⌘ + ⇧ + X). You may be taught extra about Python assist in Visible Studio Code within the documentation. In case you run into any issues or have solutions, please file a difficulty on the Python VS Code GitHub web page.
