I was forced to switch over from Atom to VSCode and noticed some strange behavior when starting VSCode. Whenever I start up VSCode a Julia process is created that uses 100% CPU usage even before Julia/REPL is started. I’ve seen else where that this is possibly due to the Julia Extension compiling my packages in the background but when I close VSCode this process is still running. If I reopen the program, another process is created in addition to the previous one requiring 100% CPU usage. It seems the only way to stop these is by preforming a restart of my computer.
Is there a way to prevent this from occurring? Is it possible to configure VSCode be similar to Atom such that Julia processes are only created when I run start Julia/REPL and can be killed by running exit()?
I am currently running Julia 1.3.0 and VSCode 1.41.1 on OSX 10.15.2.
