Compile 6502 assembly code in VSCode on Mac, Linux, and Windows #6502 #Assembly #VSCode #Commodore
Twitter user @awsm9000 has created a GitHub repo to get beginners started developing cross platform 6502 assembly with VSCode.
With this basic setup you will be able to write and compile 6502 assembly code on Mac, Linux or Windows. It is by no means perfect, but it should get most beginners started and is easy to setup and configure. I’m hoping to help more people with their first attempts at writing 8 bit assembly code. Also consider this repo as an invitation to improve and share my setup. Any feedback is very welcome, share your ideas in the issues section or contribute to the repo with your pull requests. Thanks!
The framework consists of the following software (all free):

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
