VS Code: The Last Editor You'll Ever Need

1765 ratings | 153890 views
VS Code is a cross platform editor from Microsoft that combines the speed and simplicity of a code editor with the great code editing and debugging experiences normally only found in heavy IDEs. VS Code downloads and installs in under a minute complete with deep JavaScript, Node, CSS/LESS/SASS support and more, everything you need for full stack web development. Along with lightweight git support, VS Code integrates seamlessly into your toolchain and with more than 1000 extensions and themes, you can customize VS Code to work the way you do. In this talk you’ll find out why we think VS Code is last editor you’ll ever need as we build an application from scratch to the cloud in under 30min.

Atom is way better but since Microsoft bought Github (and Atom along with Electron are made by Github) I am worried that it is going to be swallowed by VSCode...

Not that fast! Get a Live Preview somewhere as close to Brackets and I may. I said close. I know you can't match that.
taariqq (4 months ago)
How do I use VS Code so that, like Brackets, the files update upon save and the files switch in the browser with the editor. Greatly appreciate your help.
Völundr Frey (5 months ago)
I really like VS code, but feels it's a bit bloated for my usage. However so are most decent editors, I have no need for debugging or version control for example.
Dario Volarić (5 months ago)
Thank you for this! I was a fan of Dreamweaver for YEARS (code view, NOT the visual editor). And even before that when it was briefly known as Macromedia Dreamweaver and before that known as Allaire Homesite. Dreamweaver had it all. I mostly liked the built in support for FTP. Simply press ctrl+shift+u and it save and uploads. Nice! No need to save locally, switch to FTP program, upload. And the latest update even added multi cursor support git, emmet and scss. However it also added horrible _notes folders that mess up my git repos. Even when I disable notes per project and caching it still creates them. Also no minimap and no support for plugins to add a minimap. I tried others like Atom and Brackets. Out of those two I liked Atom most but it felt heavy because it actually runs in a Chrome environment. VS Code comes with everything I need. Git, minimap, scss, emmet and file icons. In Atom I had to install all that manually. Also VS Code loads A LOT faster. This is my new favorite editor after 10 years of using Dreamweaver.

Svein Are Karlsen (5 months ago)
I prefer NOT working in a beautiful and extendable UI if that also means a bloated, slow web-app in a package, instead of fast, snappy, natively running, compiled binaries... Electron should only be a prototyping-tool for REAL software. Atom and VS.code are great looking, versatile, hackable resource HOGS...

Konstantin Simeonov (5 months ago)
Used VS Code for several years - I love it, but it's getting waaaay too heavy of late. As much as I suffer with vim, I've started using it just because it isn't such a resource hog. I also find myself ssh-ing into other machines and editing stuff there quite often, for which vim is ideal.

It would be the last editor I've ever needed had it not been so slow and buggy. It'd be nice if it had a smaller interface and less need to rely on a mouse. If there's something between emacs and this let me know.

Features like Emmet, has features like trying to predict what to name your variable. In the long run it becomes annoying because it becomes hard to know if you've already defined a variable with the same name or if its a prediction. Its also annoying when you want to name it something else, especially something way shorter and it autocompletes it to something longer. This would be all fine and dandy iff you are able to disable and enable this feature. But you can't, so I'd prefer to use another IDE that doesnt fight with me.
Carlos Mafla (7 months ago)
You can find all those features in your checklist in VIM

Gigastar that's because people don't realize how open minded Microsoft is. They are not like Apple in that they have dictate to their employees on what to use.
Adrian-Cornel Borină (8 months ago)
Sublime is a tool you need a full day to set it up and it never really works as you want. I've also tried VS Code few months ago and I couldn't see any of the features mentioned in this video. Either they were added recently, or they are hidden or they work only in the exact scenario and none other.
NazmusLabs (8 months ago)
eggwaffle and that was his point, which you came to the same conclusion. An IDE is a better option for *his* case. I find that calling him "old" without understanding why he is using an IDE was completely unfair. And I also don't think IDE implies working with proprietary technologies. VS2017 IDE can be used to build Linux apps in C++. Can't get any more open than that. For me personally, I have both VS Code and VS2017. I prefer working with IDEs because of their customizable workspace and an integrated Solution/Project explorer. I feel more at home with an IDE. It's like my personal digital office workspace for my programming needs. I use text editors like VSCode and Notepad++ for one of text or code editing or making quick changes to a code file.
eggwaffle (8 months ago)
My PHP usage doesn't extend far beyond Wordpress and I never use debugging tools, but I get all the functions etc that I need. An IDE may very well be better for your use case. But you mentioned an editor for JS and I can't think of a better one. I've never tried webstorm though, so that might be good. It's just too ugly for me. I need to enjoy my development experience as well as be productive ;-) Ah I see what you mean by a Code Outline. Fair enough I have never looked for it, I honestly forgot that was a thing. I'm going to try it out and see how useful it is.
Adrian-Cornel Borină (8 months ago)
Sorry, by "file structure", I meant more like "Code outline", i.e. classes, functions, and properties in the file. I upgraded my VS Code and It seems a little more usable now than it was a few months ago. As far as I am willing to look into it on a Saturday Night, I can't find a "Code outline" feature. I see a plugin, I installed it, but it's less than I'm used to: I can't move the pane, there are some useful settings hidden in the JSON configuration, which brings me back to the fact I need a full day to configure these things and I still don't end up with what I want. Since you are working with PHP, do you have any tips on configuring it with XDebug on a Vagrant VM? If that works and works well enough, I might give it a fair try. Also, is there a good PHP auto-complete plugin. What I have so far sucks.
eggwaffle (8 months ago)
I called you old because I have witnessed many older devs refusing to use newer tools because they're used to their old IDE's like dreamweaver (puke). Also your use of the word hippie doesn't help. You must have had some bad experiences with plugins in the past because generally all the good ones (ones with thousands of downloads) work perfectly. I cannot speak for your experiences but mine have been great. VSCode is the perfect editor for javascript. I truly am confused / interested now as to what issues you encountered. I get PERFECT intellisense and autocomplete for my JS (and PHP) which I write daily. The javascript ecosystem in VSCode couldn't be better in my opinion. The plugins for Flow, React, Prettier, ESLint etc all work great. Code folding also has never been an issue, perhaps you don't indent your code? Integrated terminal is also great for quick npm installs and whatever else you may need with a quick keyboard shortcut. Also, any autocomplete you happen to not have can be included easily with plugins and code snippets. "You'd be lucky if one even includes a file structure pane, let alone one that understands what is going on in the file." I honestly have no clue what you mean now. Sublime, Atom and VSCode all have file panes... Which are customisable with pretty much any feature you could need. Atom and VSCode have complete git integration so they will show you your diffs etc (they know exactly what's going on in the file). Also keybindings are arbitrary and can be changed, that's a non-issue. I'm not really interested in keeping this conversation going, however I would urge you to try VSCode just once more and see if you still hate it. I only say this because it has made my life so much better since I found it :-) Peace
Adrian-Cornel Borină (8 months ago)
They're light, I give you that. But customizable? They have tens or hundreds of plugins, but those plugins are at most subpar and don't always work well with each other. I work with many languages and some editors/IDEs work better than others in different circumstances. The one I have the hardest time finding a proper editor for is JavaScript. That's not a "proprietary ecosystem". Yet no "hippie" text editor, not even VSCode, can give me a good-enough auto-complete for it. Some don't even provide proper code-folding (or, if they do, it's hidden). Some rely on un-intuitive key combinations. You'd be lucky if one even includes a file structure pane, let alone one that understands what is going on in the file. I am not sure what old. If old means I prefer tools that help me get the job done faster and more relyable

i think you're wrong, Intellijea is more an IDE than just a simple textEditor. It's more or less the base of a lot of different variety of IDE's. as an exemple the whole "Jetbrains" Suite is based on IntelliJ.

Love VS Code! Bracket Pair Colorizer, File Icons, .class .ID + Tab, Live Server, are probably my favorite features, so far. I'm still pretty new to learning, I've not used most of the features, yet. Would love to see VS Code, become a full IDE.
