Does VsCode Online have plans to open source code? #60
@harbin1053020115 Hey! Right now, we're hyper focused on addressing developer feedback and getting the service to GA (which will require a lot of work!). Since the codebase will be evolving pretty rapidly, and there's a significant cost to open sourcing a project correctly (e.g. adding good documentation, cleaning up API boundaries, etc.), this isn't something we're currently prioritizing.
That said, this is something we'd love to continue hearing feedback on, as we make progress towards stabilizing the product
@lostintangent thank you for your feedback! Will love to see even pre-alpha version. From my point of view it's OK to do it incorrectly, i.e. without documentation at all and mark it as an alpha version without any support in the README. Maybe even without allowing to create github issues, until it reach a some defined quality. But yes, if you use internal apis, they need a clear boundaries.
What do you think about it?
