  • Code-Server but with Codium?
    2 projects | | 24 May 2022
    I wouldn't really say codium is a "complete rewritten clone", they clearly state that it's not a fork. Codium pulls directly from vscode source ( and then throws in some patches to remove MS stuff then builds it and releases it under MIT license. One could easily build their own vscode binary from MS's source, but codium does all that for you so you don't need to build/patch.

    Complete agreement. It would be nice to have an up-to-date editor that continued to function in a terminal. I use VSCode for a lot of my recent work and it's quote powerful (and open-source), but it now relies completely on a GUI interface. I wouldn't mind having, say, 33% of its features in a pure terminal-compatible form. That would be fantastic.
  • Arch Linux - VSC Insiders
    3 projects | | 23 May 2022
    Now that I've set this all up, here's my question; how can I reliably have my own built from source version of this program? Unfortunately, I didn't see any clear instructions in the main repo, and nothing stood out when I tried googling the question. So I want to either fork the main branch or curl in the nightly code into my repo and build it from there and add that repo to my pacman.conf file to install.

    The instructions in the repo look pretty detailed, have you tried them? You could make an Arch package out of these.

    From a coder perspective, these are the ones I could not live without: - Alfred - goes without saying. It's all in the name ;-) - VSCode - I used SublimeText for a long time, but VSCode is just too good to not switch. It has all I ever wanted, and I tweaked the rest :-) - 1password - I tried lots of others (Enpass, KeePass(x/ce), LastPass, BitWarden) but 1p is just another level of usability (especially with this quick-access-spotlight-like-search in v8) - (Things]( - I don't know where my life was before Things, but now cannot imagine not using it every day! - (Fantastical)[] - same as above - handles calendars and reminders impossibly well. And the natural language task adding is just amazing! - Bear - I go on a note-app-hunt every couple of months, but always come back to my bear. Nothing (IMO) comes even close! Including native Notes, which for some reason has issues with sync across my devices. Bear just works. Always! - iTerm - replaced my terminal because it's better in so many ways (split panes, nicer UI & lots of tweaks).

  • Ask HN: What developer tools would you like to see?
    31 projects | | 22 May 2022
    I would just like the see the suckier parts of VSCode be fixed (to my liking ... meaning I get that different people have different preferences)

    1. Give me keyboard macros (emacs)

    2. Select modes. #1 generally is better with a start selection, end selection mode. As in Start recording, search for `(`, start selecting, search for `)`, copy, do something, paste.

    3. Fix the Undo. AFAICT the undo feature in VSCode was made with zero thought. I don't know if it just undoes the last N keystrokes or what it's criteria area but IMO it fails to even try to do what a user (me) would want compared to the editor I used previously which seemed to have some heuristics. (undo cursor moves in groups? undo single words?) I don't know what it's algo was but I never had to retype stuff where as in VSCode I'm always having to retype stuff as undo undoes too much. Another nice feature if my previous editor was I could undo to the last save by just holding Ctrl-Z/Cmd-Z and when it hit the last save it would pause with a prompt. I found that super useful. VSCode I have to close the file (and therefore lose undo/redo past the save) or I have to just super carefully undo and try to remember where the last save happened. 3b. wish undo undid the last multi-cursor addition.

    4. Add true column selection/virtual space. Multi-cursor mode is great but it doesn't handle many cases the column selection does.

    5. Fix the broken "go to" (search result, definition, etc...). In most editors when you choose to "go to" a search result (search all, click a result) the editor shows the result in the active window. Example: Search for "name-of-method", results show the definition and the declaration in the same file. Open 2 windows, make one window active, click the definition in the search results, the active window "goes to" the definition. Click the 2nd window, click declaration in the search result, the 2nd window goes to the declaration. Now you can reference both. This doesn't work in VSCode. In VSCode clicking the 2nd result will move the first window making it frustrating to try to reference things in the same file. They added that you can drag the search result to a specific window but unfortunately there are tons of other places in the editor that default to moving whatever window is already showing that file, rather than the active window. So, if you were trying to see something in that window and had chosen different window as to where you wanted the result to appear you're S.O.L. No other editor I've used in 40yrs has had this (arguably) broken behavior.
