So I want to write a C++ program for Linux which works on a very low level, to the point where VM just doesn't cut it.

But I'm really used to writing C++ using Visual Studio, but as you know Visual Studio is not available in Linux.

So I'm looking for a Linux alternative which allows me the same kind of project management as Visual Studio does, as well as giving me a simple easy building process, and easy debugging, all in the same fashion as VS.

Anyone knows a replacement that would work for me?


Visual Studio Code is available for all major platforms. It quickly gained popularity in 2017 and is the most popular editor on Stack Overflow in 2018. It's technically an editor, not an IDE but it allows you to manage projects, develop and debug easily just like Visual Studio. It also has support for almost any languages that you can imagine
