Thank you for the new guide. I’ll take a look at it.

Hopefully, you’ve removed one of the prior getting started with Individual Edition guides (Anaconda Nucleus) where the example worked fine if used within the environment at the link but did not work if the example was cut/pasted into a JupyterLab or Jupyter notebook created from a freshly installed Anaconda Navigator. It gave a ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘js’

After they removed Visual Code Studio, entire Anaconda thing had became a little bit more than extension of PyCharm professional. Add here that Anaconda is pretty slow thing and you see that there is no any sense to download it until you are a PyCharm lover.

@sergei_Shevtsov it sounds like you are referring to Anaconda Navigator specifically. Anaconda itself is much more than just Anaconda Navigator. However, addressing your concerns about Anaconda Navigator - it will still display the VSCode tile on the home tab if it is installed on your machine (if Navigator does not find it automatically itself, you can update the configuration to point to the right place). Additionally, in an upcoming release, we’ll be adding an enhancement to the VSCode tile on the homepage where Anaconda Navigator will launch VSCode with the current conda environment activated. There have also been some performance improvements recently for Navigator - so if you haven’t tried it in awhile, I’d suggest giving it another try. (There is still room for even more improvement though!)
