    • VSC has built in Git support. So it should.
      Although that's totally unrelated to the Python scope and I don't know if VSC will handle such a large code base very well.

      P.S.: Great! I now have time again because I was working on something similar:)

  1. Just FYI, I was trying to do this with blender 2.8 downloaded on December 23rd. I'd get an error when I tried to do Blender Start. I think there is a path length restriction. The folder names on the downloads are pretty big. I renamed the folder to b28 and put it at the C: directory base and everything worked.
