Setting up as a Python IDE

Settings File

Every VS Code project has a .vscode directory, which contains a JSON file, called settings.json. Whether, you configure your VS Code extensions form their respective UI, or add lines directly to this file, the effect will be the same. This is how a sample settings.json file looks like for a particular Python project of mine:

  "python.linting.enabled": true,
  "python.linting.pylintEnabled": false,
  "python.linting.flake8Enabled": true,
  "python.linting.flake8Args": ["--max-line-length=88"],
  "python.pythonPath": "path_to_my_project/venv/bin/python",
  "python.formatting.provider": "black",
  "python.unitTest.unittestEnabled": true,
  "python.unitTest.pyTestEnabled": false,
  "python.unitTest.nosetestsEnabled": false
