About six months ago, Microsoft launched Pylance, a "fast and feature-rich language support for Python," available in the Visual Studio Code marketplace.
Pylance depends on our core Python extension and builds upon that experience, for those of you who have already installed it.
Among its main features are type information, auto-imports, multi-root workspace support, and type checking diagnostics.
The name Pylance serves as a nod to Monty Python’s Lancelot, who is the first knight to answer the bridgekeeper’s questions in the Holy Grail.
From their website:
- Other people's Models can be required the Node.s way, modified, and re-exported.
- Models can be scaled, distorted, measured, and converted to different unit systems.
- Paths can be distorted.
- Models can be rotated or mirrored.
- Find intersection points or intersection angles of paths.
- Traverse a model tree to reason over its children.
- Detect chains formed by paths connecting end to end.
- Get the points along a path or along a chain of paths.
- Easily add a curvature at the joint between any 2 paths, using a traditional or a dogbone fillet.
- Combine models with boolean operations to get unions, intersections, or punches.
- Expand paths to simulate a stroke thickness, with the option to bevel joints.
- Outline model to create a surrounding outline, with the option to bevel joints.
- Layout clones into rows, columns, grids, bricks, or honeycombs.
