Rancher vs Visual Studio Code: What are the differences?

Rancher: Open Source Platform for Running a Private Container Service. Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform; Visual Studio Code: Build and debug modern web and cloud applications, by Microsoft. Build and debug modern web and cloud applications. Code is free and available on your favorite platform - Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows.

Rancher can be classified as a tool in the "Container Tools" category, while Visual Studio Code is grouped under "Text Editor".

"Easy to use", "Open source and totally free" and "Multi-host docker-compose support" are the key factors why developers consider Rancher; whereas "Powerful multilanguage IDE", "Fast" and "Front-end develop out of the box" are the primary reasons why Visual Studio Code is favored.

Rancher and Visual Studio Code are both open source tools. It seems that Visual Studio Code with 78.4K GitHub stars and 10.9K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Rancher with 11.8K GitHub stars and 1.31K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Visual Studio Code has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1104 company stacks & 2301 developers stacks; compared to Rancher, which is listed in 88 company stacks and 35 developer stacks.

Visual Studio Code became famous over the past 3+ years I believe. The clean UI, easy to use UX and the plethora of integrations made it a very easy decision for us. Our gripe with Sublime was probably only the UX side. VSCode has not failed us till now, and still is able to support our development env without any significant effort.

Goland being paid, as well as built only for Go seemed like a significant limitation to not consider it.

I decided to choose VSCode over Sublime text for my Systems Programming class in C. What I love about VSCode is its awesome ability to add extensions. Intellisense is a beautiful debugger, and Remote SSH allows me to login and make real-time changes in VSCode to files on my university server. This is an awesome alternative to going back and forth on pushing/pulling code and logging into servers in the terminal. Great choice for anyone interested in C programming!
