I also downloaded VS Code but it doesnt show me what my written code looks like or how the functions would work.
The way I am learning, I like to play around with the code and tweak it to see how it affects the outcome and change values. Freecodecamp console log doesnt show anything. Many years ago when I first signed up for FCC, it used to show the log and I used to be able to tweak the code and see it change but it doesnt show me that anymore. Any ideas?
- If you like IntelliJ, the JetBrains IDE for web development is called WebStorm (which is bundled in IntelliJ Ultimate, if you have it)
- If you want to see changes to a web application as you make it, you’ll want to have it up in a browser. Depending on what you’re building, that may just be a matter of opening an
.htmlfile in your browser. For more complicated applications you would be running a local development server.
- You can see the results of code that you write in the freeCodeCamp editor. The console that
console.logwill print to is in your browser. Open DevTools (F12) and look at the console tab.
For VS Code have you tried installing the Live Server extension? I use that to see how my current project looks like and to see my changes live. I have also used JSFiddle to run some code. The options suggested above are also great to look into.
