I too use vscode as my editor, and recently wanted to use it for ConTeXt
as well.

Patrick Gundlach created a tmLanguage file for ConTeXt:

I just finished packaging and publishing said file in a vscode extension.

You can find it on GitHub:

Or on the vscode marketplace:

As the name suggests, the extension only provides syntax highlighting. I
might add snippets or build macros in the future, though I would
probably implement these things in a seperate extension.

Best regards,


Also, if you want to build the document with a keybinding, you could
define a build task in your tasks.json:
