VSCode offers to install the official MSSQL plugin as "recommended plugins for MySQL" without informing the user that they're getting fucked over. I tolerate very few deliberate minor inconveniences designed to influence my product choice, so what are my options for a reasonably scriptable, yet stable open source IDE with a good set of plugins?

    @dontknowshit This is vscodium. It just sources its plugins, categories and recommendations from the MS operated online store.

    @Lor-inc are you sure? I only say this because there are extensions that show up in vscode that do not appear in vscodium

    @dontknowshit Maybe due to difference in version, but AFAIK, both share the same set of extensions

    @dontknowshit I take my word back. Codium uses open-vsx.com, and it does not have any microsoft extensions,

    @AvyChanna In that case this is definitely not vscodium.

    @Lor-inc The package maintainers have to separately publish extensions for codium on open vsx.

    From experience, I can still download and install and use regular vsix files in codium, though MS extensions won't work, including remote development, debugging extensions, etc.

    From the wiki,
    `VS Code has a product.json file that defines basic properties of the application. The schema of that file is declared in productService.ts. When Microsoft build the official VS Code binaries, they add information that is not present in the open source version`.

    Edit: It is open-vsx.org, FUCK. this is one of the days when nothing correct comes out of my brain
