For my link archive:

When Google Search returns one link twice in the results, thinking it was published on two different dates.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/13

I laughed when got me the first link twice (see below screenshot).

But I was glad that that link to [WayBack] visual studio code – How to set per-filetype tab size? – Stack Overflow.

This one:

In addition, it taught me how to configure the settings.json with md specific settings, which – despite the IDE indicating the JSON is invalid – just works: markdown indentation is now 2 character positions.

    "[md]": {
      "editor.tabSize": 2

The search result:

Pretty printing HTML is the same as formatting code: How do you format code in Visual Studio Code (VSCode) – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/18

I was looking for a HTML pretty printer (…) but in Visual Studio code, that is called code formatting, which supports many languages out of the box (including HTML) without requiring extensions like (see below).

The shortcuts are at [WayBack] How do you format code in Visual Studio Code (VSCode) – Stack Overflow.

For Mac OS X/OS X/MacOS they are (the second one only appears when you have a code selection):

  • document: ShiftOptionF
  • selection: CommandK CommandF

Some useful Visual Studio Keyboard bindings – via my comment at “Allow for floating windows · Issue #10121 · Microsoft/vscode · GitHub”

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/05/30

The thread at [WayBack]: Allow for floating windows · Issue #10121 · Microsoft/vscode · GitHub made me discover a few things, which I have commented there.

Reminder to self: find the Windows keyboard shortcuts as well.

Thanks @steinhh for the CmdK O keyboard combination. I was not aware of that yet and I am going to use this next week on a multi-monitor system to see how well that works.

Your tip made me found the PDFs below and made me make the lists/screenshots below as well.

Terrific! Thank you, thank you!

The bindings (on Mac) I found with their screenshots:

  • CmdShiftP: show all commands

  • CmdK O: open current file in new Window
  • CmdShiftN: open a new window
    screenshot 2018-05-20 15 27 00
  • CmdK CmdR: open keyboard shortcuts reference PDF for current OS in the default web-browser
  • CmdK CmdS: open keyboard shortcuts editor
    screenshot 2018-05-20 15 24 07

The keyboard shortcuts editor has a search which can find bindings on the keybinding name itself or the command name:

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 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 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.
