No more vanilla VS Code.

The post’s title says it all. I cooked up a copy of Visual Studio Code from source a few days ago.

I added a few lines of code to product.json to enable the extensions gallery so that I wouldn’t have to keep downloading VSIX files manually:

"extensionsGallery": {
    "serviceUrl": "",
    "itemUrl": ""
"linkProtectionTrustedDomains": [""]

I also disabled telemetry in the options.

In case anyone’s too lazy to go through the trouble of compiling a copy, you can use VSCodium. You’ll get automatic updates as a bonus, too!
