Release Announcement: Flux VSCode Support

Navigate to:

Flux is a powerful, purpose-built open-source language for working with data. The language has continued to mature in recent months, and there’s never been a better time to give it a try.

Today we’re announcing support for Flux in Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code editor, available as an extension in their marketplace here.

Flux language error demo

We’ve leveraged the same parser used to parse Flux in InfluxDB to support features like:

  • Error messaging
  • Finding variable references
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Querying directly from the code editor

We’re just scratching the surface of what’s possible with Flux. Expect regular updates to the extension with support for intelligent autocompletion, integrated script execution, and other features.

Upcoming features include:

  • Statement completion for types and data
  • Enhanced progressive evaluation

Committed to open source

We’ve open sourced the language server that powers the VSCode extension, and it’s already been used to add Flux support to Vim with vim-flux.
