I have used many text editors such as:
as well as a handful of IDE’s
Every time I found myself editing a website, building a web application or just dabbing in a new language - Visual Studio Code always seem to float my boat.
Visual Studio Code is a very powerful text editor that is built by Microsoft. I prefere it over the listed text editors because of its vast array of features.
This feature allows you to go beyond syntax highlighting and beyond autocomplete. It provides me with function definitions and smart completion which really makes coding fun and easy to learn.
The debugging tool is a very attractive feature of Visual Studio Code. It wont alert you when a cockroach is 20 feet from your house, but it will allow you to attach your running apps, debug at breaking points, declare call stacks, and it even has an interactive console
Git Version Control
This thing is a beast when it comes to working with projects under version control. It makes syncing, pulling, pushing, initializing, and committing a breeze! You can also review diffs, stage files, and push and pull from any hosted Git service!
That not enough to satisfy your hunger to crunch code ? What if i told you they have a database of installable extensions, languages, themes, and debuggers. The extensions feature is super awesome because there are hundreds to choose from and they run on separate processes ensuring that your editor doesn’t get bogged down!
I encourage you to check it out and explore! Let me know what you think about it!
Happy coding, friends
