Just a quick update.

We’ve created a Visual Studio code extension for Aeternity’s Sophia Language.

We felt the need for this, after having to write some Sophia smart contracts in visual studio code.

After searching a while, we didn’t find anything released nor developed yet in regards to helping to highlight the code or show typos, so we decided to create it and help the community of blockchain developers out there, that might be struggling writing Aeternity’s Sophia smart contracts.

Currently the extension only supports syntax highlighting the code, but we have planned some features for the nearest future to be added:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Code snippets
  • Shortcut for fast compilation of the current sophia smart contract
  • Shortcut for compiling all smart contracts in the project directory
  • Code completion
  • Default project structure
  • and more…

The extension could be found in the vscode marketplace and also here:

Also – this extension is open source, so any contributions, ideas and suggestions are more than welcome here in the github repo:

Update: People wanted to donate some tokens for our efforts in the aeternity community, so we are providing here a public address for this:
