Technically the editor's source code is available under MIT: github.com/Microsoft/vscode

However the builds featured on code.visualstudio.com/ contain additional "Microsoft customizations", which are only available under Microsoft's standard proprietary license.

To create a fully free software version of the editor, the VS Codium project was created.

@velartrill @lightweight

VSCodium is a separate, independent project whose name alludes to Chromium. VS Code is not based on it, it's the other way around.

@tio @futureisfoss Here's a funny thing, I remember using Musikwave as inspiration at some point when developing Nuclear

@tio @futureisfoss
It's still not 1.0 but it's already very functional and we're getting less bugs with every release.

@Blort Yes, there's autoradio which adds songs to the queue based on the songs that are currently in it. It's on by default.

Nuclear 0.6.16 released:

We've added favorite artists, exporting playlists to JSON, and several new translations.

Check the release notes for details.

If you haven't heard of Gramatik, this is your chance to tune in and calm your soul ❤️


This guy is a musical genius, not kidding.

Nuclear's translations will now be managed on Crowdin:


If you would like to help us translate the projects, please follow this link and start editing.

We're aware of an issue with ytdl-core that's affecting the availability of streaming from Youtube: github.com/fent/node-ytdl-core

If you want to support Nuclear, please consider giving it upvotes/reviews here: alternativeto.net/software/nuc

We've just merged a PR by Ivan12273 allowing Nuclear to search for and play iTunes podcasts: github.com/nukeop/nuclear/pull

If you're having problems accessing the local library after the new release, try deleting the index (~/.config/Electron/nuclear-local-db.sqlite or %APPDATA%/Electron/nuclear-local-db.sqlite on Windows) and re-scanning the library.

Nuclear 0.6.14 released:

We've improved playlists and added Mastodon integration, among other upgrades.

We're planning to create a music recommendation engine for Nuclear. We want to start small with a single music genre, then expand to others. In the future, this will be linked to a playlist sharing feature and a browser for internet radios in selected genres.

What genre would be a good starting point?

Please share!

@richard Great! We're looking for bands or solo artists that have their materials in any of our supported sources, or would like to add them.
