I might be wrong, but isnt this package open source as MIT license?

Why dont you build from source instead?

This will change again before very long, but as of 2017-05-15 the current version is 1.12.2. This won't build unless in PKGBUILD you change md5sums_x86_64 to:


I would think a better solution though would be to download a specific version of VS Code as opposed to the latest. That way the PKGBUILD will at least work instead of giving an MD5 error, although it will build an out-of-date version. To do that, change source_x86_64 to:

Shouldn't this package have a -bin suffix then?

As mentioned in the package description, this is the official binary compiled and distributed by upstream. The main difference is the extension manager: This package supports the extension gallery [0], the oss version doesn't (by default). See the note in the PKGBUILD [1] for details.

Hello, what's the difference between this package and 'visual-studio-code-oss'? I thought vscode was open source by default..

Be aware that VSCode seems to ignore telemetry settings.
The extension gallery is the telemtry source for official releases (hence it being stripped out in a true OSS version). Also Microsoft plugins aswell seem to ignore the telemetry setting.

I've added some keywords. The description was changed because some AUR helpers apparently have trouble without it (see a few comments below yours).

In any case, it's a cosmetic change so it will have to wait till the next release at least.
