Visual Studio Community or Visual Studio Code?

Just wanted some feedback regarding what people think is better for developing in UE4, Community or Code. Visual Assist is not supported in Code, but Code developers claim their IDE ‘gets out of your way’, and is a more productive environment (particularly for newer programmers who desire less distraction?). What do you think?

Since Visual Studio Code is a very simple IDE and not a compiler/etc,it requires more setup to get started (from what I’ve read at least). That and not supporting VAX are non-starters IMO, so I personally just go with VS Community. I’ve never had any issues with clutter/performance(once the solution is loaded) in VS personally.

Definitely VS + Visual Assist. Anything else is just asking for pain in a gigantic project like this.
