It’s at least as lightweight as atom or sublime text I suppose 😬 Definitely lighter than something like Eclipse. It depends on how many extensions you have running. Like any editor. But it opens up quick, can be configured down to a minimal, basic editing experience, and still allows for big power and productivity when you need it.
VS Code was much heavier on my laptop than sublime when I had a a 5400rpm HDD on it, even though I regularly disable/remove extensions per project as this article advises. No difference now that I installed an SSD though.
