Visual Studio Code – getting started – some links

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/05

It might sound like I’m late in the game, but remember that blog posts are usually scheduled like a year in advance.

So I found out a long time ago (I think it’s Matthijs ter Woord who attended me) about Visual Studio Code.

At the start [WayBack] it was more limited (from memory something like C#, TypeScript, Java Script languages and frameworks Node.js and ASP.NET 5) than my other development environments but now it’s much richer.

It’s based on the Electron framework which I kew from the Atom.io editor and Koush‘s framework Electron Chrome that wraps Chrome Apps in Electron so he ensured Vysor would live after Google will kill Chrome Apps.

Oh it’s free and runs multi-platform which I like a lot (and was one of the reasons to start using Atom.io): Mac OS X, Windows and Linux are supported.

So here are a few links to get started:

I got reminded a while back** that it is now supported by OmniPascal [WayBack] which I like because of my Turbo Pascal -> VAX/VMS -> csh -> Delphi -> AS/400 -> .NET background.

Like Visual Studio Code is updated often, the Omni Pascal blog [WayBack] shows regular updates and I like it a lot better than the Lazarus IDE (I’m not a visual RAD person: I’m a RAD code person) especially the refactorings.

So start playing with it. I will post more about my Visual Studio Code experience in due time.

    I use VS Code a lot and I really like it. It’s fast, the editor is great, and intellisense for things like typescript, react etc is fantastic. I haven’t yet used for delphi code because it’s not possible to debug delphi with it. Perhaps one day…
