Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2021-06-26 16:52:25 UTC
I plan to add windows support via git-bash.exe from Simply install git-for-windows and python, then enter a venv and pip install portage. It would be nice to have an ebuild development plugin for visual studio code to go along with this.
Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2021-06-26 17:06:34 UTC
Currently, there are nearly 38 million installs reported for the visual studio code python plugin:

A sizable portion of these users probably already has git-bash.exe installed, and could possibly use an ebuild development plugin to author ebuilds.
