If you have not already done so, download Visual Studio Code for Mac, Windows, or Linux. We recommend the Stable build. If you already have Visual Studio Code install you can add the Particle Workbench to your existing install.
Check your email to download the Particle extensions and extract the files from the zip file:
- From the View menu, select Extensions.
- From the … menu select Install from VISX.
- Repeat for each of theme, snippets, the core last.
The core installation will take a few minutes. There’s an indicator at the top of the extensions panel that shows the install is still in progress. When complete, you’ll be prompted to reload. Click the Reload Now button.
After reload, some more components will be installed and you will be prompted to install the Particle Local Compiler. This is recommended.
