ABAP remote filesystem for visual studio code (beta)
Turns Visual studio code into an IDE for ABAP development, operating directly on your SAP server.
Is less capable and more buggy than Eclipse with ADT, but also more responsive, and has a couple of extra features not found in Eclipse, like listing changed sources by transport and normalizing changes in diff views
The easiest way is to first create a connection with an ABAP server by running command
and follow the instructions, then run command
to connect to it. Your abap code will appear in the file tree on the left.
You can also look up ABAP objects by name with command
Unless your system is very modern (7.51 or later I think), write support will require you to install this plugin in your dev server to enable. Browsing works even without it
syntax highlighting provided by ABAP language extension, picture was too lame without it :)
Compatibility with ABAPlint is limited by different naming conventions
You will end up with one or more server connections like this in your vs code configuration:
