System requirements
VS Code is supported on these Raspberry Pi models running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Raspberry Pi OS:
  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B/B+
  • Raspberry Pi 4 Model B
  • Raspberry Pi 400
  • While 1 GB of memory (RAM) meets the minimum system requirements, users will benefit from installing VS Code on a Raspberry Pi 4 with more memory.

Visual Studio Code is officially distributed via the Raspberry Pi OS (previously called Raspbian) APT repository, in both 32-bit and 64-bit variants.

You can install it by running:

Quote:sudo apt update
sudo apt install code

Running VS Code
After installing the VS Code package, you can run VS Code by typing code in a terminal or launching it via the Programming menu.

Your Raspberry Pi should handle updating VS Code in the same way as other packages on the system:

Quote:sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade code

You can always check when a new release is available in our Updates page.

First-generation Raspberry Pi modules and Raspberry Pi Zero are not supported as they only include an ARMv6 CPU.
