Compiler for Visual Studio Code

Hello everyone,


I'm trying to migrate the IDE for programming in COS, we normally use the Studio, but we want to use a more modern IDE. Our team has knowledge with Visual Studio plataform, but we couldn't configurate the compiler and terminal, I installed the extension InterSystems ObjectScript and tried to configurate to connect with my local machine, unfortunately the connection don't sucessed.

Someone has material for how i can connect and compile? Some material i saw show how to use the compiler, but not how can i do the configuration.


Best regards,

Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code are two very different products but just with similar names.

To configure Visual Studio Code, you can use this settings

    "objectscript.conn": {
        "active": true,
        "host": "localhost",
        "port": 57772,
        "ns": "SAMPLES",
        "username": "admin",
        "password": "SYS"


  • active, should be true, if you going to be connected
  • port should point to Web server port, and not super port
  • username/password, the user should have enough permissions with role %Development

Expanding on what Evgeny wrote, the new Serenji extension from us at George James Software gives you an experience that's most similar to what you're used to with InterSystems Studio. It connects you directly to the namespaces of your servers, even if they're running versions that are too old to support the Atelier REST APIs which other VSCode extensions depend on.

Plus, Serenji offers debugging.
