PlantUML – Visual Studio Marketplace

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/12

This and built-in markdown support made the switch to Visual Studio code from Atom.io so much easier: [WayBack] PlantUML – Visual Studio Marketplace.

Atom.io was already on my list of tools to say good bye to: though a good project to show the versatility of the Electron Framework, over time – like Google Chrome – it had become a memory and CPU hog and a drag to use and update.

Integrating debuggers and other parts of the development life cycle involved too much fuzz, for which Visual Studio code (also known as vscode) was much easier from the start.

Probably Visual Studio code did not suffer from what the Dutch call Law of the handicap of a head start: it is much more responsive and versatile than Atom.io. Also the plugins – despite having come to the market later – feel way more mature in Visual Studio code than Atom.io.

Finally, the PlantUML support extension for vscode is so much nicer than in Atom.io, it for instance supports live updating and in addition to local rendering, rendering through a PlantUML server (see [WayBack] GitHub – plantuml/plantuml-server: PlantUML Online Server).

Source code is at [WayBack] GitHub – qjebbs/vscode-plantuml: Rich PlantUML support for Visual Studio Code.

Omg this is awesome. Synchronize settings etc between Atom installs! …

[WayBack] Omg this is awesome. Synchronize settings etc between Atom installs!https://atom.io/packages/sync-settings#atomio – Roderick Gadellaa – Google+

I revisited this and it’s awesome.

Note that – as usual – when you sync settings for packages that have external dependencies, these dependencies depend on your platform of choice.

Which means that if for instance depend on Pandoc and you use both a Mac and Windows, you need Pandoc installations plus all dependencies on those platforms before syncing your settings.

Atom.io package pandoc convert requires pdflatex for converting to pdf

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/20

It’s a bit hard to copy the error messages that only last a second or so, but I finally managed to:

File 0Project 0No Issues20170204.rst1:1
LF19 L | 168 W | 2329 CUTF-8reStructuredTextmaster1
[pandoc-convert]
Command failed: /usr/local/bin/pandoc --standalone --to=latex --output=/Users/jeroenp/20170204.rst.pdf /Users/jeroenp/20170204.rst pandoc: pdflatex not found. pdflatex is needed for pdf output.

In order to have pdflatex on my Mac OS X installation, I had to do this:

brew install Caskroom/cask/mactex

This will install pdflatex as

/Library/TeX/texbin/pdflatex

When Atom crashes you’re guided to use safe-mode, but safe-mode cannot disable packages

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/15

When you get a Window like this upon Atom.io start, and starting to report a bug, they guide you to a “start Atom in safe mode first, then try to disable all packages to sort out if it’s a package issue” and point to [WayBackDebugging: using safe mode.

The problem here is that when you start Atom in safe mode (from the console using atom --safe) then in the preferences you cannot disable packages: clicking on the “Disable” button has absolutely no effect.

This was with atom --version

atom --version
Atom : 1.12.8
Electron: 1.3.13
Chrome : 52.0.2743.82
Node : 6.5.0

I worked around this by editing ~/.atom/config.cson as that already contained a section like this:

  core:
    disabledPackages: [
      "nav-panel"
    ]

So I wrote a poor-mans little script that generated the inner portion of that block:

pushd ~/.atom && ls -1d packages/*/ | sed 's/packages\// "/g' | sed 's/\//"/g' && popd

which got me this nice list:

"atom-beautify"
"atom-html-preview"
"atom-keyboard-macros"
"atom-wrap-in-tag"
"autocomplete-xml"
"broadcast"
"close-tags"
"color-picker"
"counter"
"emmet"
"export-html"
"file-icons"
"git-plus"
"language-batch"
"language-bbcode"
"language-innosetup"
"language-pascal"
"language-plantuml"
"language-restructuredtext"
"language-routeros-script"
"linter"
"nav-panel-plus"
"nav-panel"
"omnisharp-atom"
"pandoc-convert"
"plantuml-preview"
"print-atom"
"rot13"
"rst-preview-pandoc"
"sort-lines"
"sync-settings"
"tabs-to-spaces"
"xml-formatter"
"xml-tools"

From there, I did a binary search for the offending package: broadcast so I’ve filed an issue there.

Running/execute an Atom.io command not present in the menu/toolbar isn’t that obvious

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/15

Took me a while to figure out that you can run any command in Atom.io, even if it’s not in the menu or toolbar:

This isn’t very clear in Atom, but what you’re after is this menu item: Toggle Command Palette

Mac OS X: Shift+Command+P:

Mac OS X: Shift+Command+P

Windows: Ctrl+Shift+P

Windows: Ctrl+Shift+P
