Visual Studio Code Knows OData

Through a new Visual Studio Code Extension for OData, developers can now get rich language support for the OData query language.

Enabled features include syntax highlighting and query encoding/decoding. Syntax aware formatting, metadata-driven code completion, and diagnostics are available in a beta state, and can be enabled through settings.

If you’re an OData developer using Visual Studio Code, this is a must-have extension. Give it a quick try, send feedback, and tell your friends!
