Develop ROS on Windows 10 using Linux Subsystem

I've been tinkering with installing ROS on WSL and so far it's been working fine. However, the toolchain is somewhat tedious.

Is there a streamlined way to use an IDE on Windows 10 such as Visual Studio or Visual Code to develop ROS packages and use things like linting, hinting and built in terminals?

My biggest annoyance is the constant switching to various terminals, running the core, modifying the CMake file and so forth.

I think the biggest problem here is that the integration between WSL and Win10 is just not completely there yet.

VS Code works well with WLS now. Just tipe "code ." in any folder and it will automatically open it in VSC on Windows. The first time, it will trigger the installation of the required extension.
