@ShayBox: You'll need to convince Microsoft to make it buildable with nodejs 10.x -- currently it isn't, which is why we require building with 8.x (carbon). However, once its built, you can always go back to the normal nodejs package, so you might consider building code in a VM or chroot, if you can't on your host system.

I realize both code and code-git do this but I can't comment on code: Using nodejs-lts-carbon prevents me from installing this, it requires me replacing nodejs which would also uninstall/break a ton of packages I have installed that depend on nodejs, Either use or allow nodejs somehow, can not make this.

The build fails with the following error:

[17:05:01] Starting compile-build ... [17:05:01] Finished compile-build after 0 ms [17:05:01] Starting optimize-vscode ... [17:05:01] 'vscode-linux-x64-min' errored after 2.18 min [17:05:01] out-build/vs/workbench/services/files/node/remoteFileService.js:542 return super.updateContent(target, content.value, { encoding: content.encoding }); ^^^^^

NOTE: If the build failed due to running out of file handles (EMFILE), you will need to raise your max open file limit. You can check this for more information on how to increase this limit:

The build failed for me without having 'python' installed. Please can you add 'python' to the makedepends? (python2 does not provide /usr/bin/python)

Error: /bin/sh: python: command not found

The product_json.patch does not match with the one from master branch in Microsoft/vscode (Possible merge with other branch)

@Vmeup MS Code uses as prerequisit for building Node.JS, >= 8.9.1, < 9.0.0 see

I have run into an installation problem where initially my installed version of Node was 10.x, so I reverted the package to Node 9.x. When trying to Install after reverting Node, I run into an issue of

'node: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory'

Looking into my system I currently have installed... Is there a workaround for this to build MS Code? Or is it safe to revert the libicu18n package to 61 without breaking dependencies for other system funcitons?

Updated to work more like the version of code recently adopted into [community], including using the system electron.

Needs a small tweak to the patch to build on latest master:
