  • Just another normal situation in a programmer's life
    Reminds me of https://github.com/microsoft/vscode/issues/110159, a VScode bug wrongly marked as duplicate (to another 2 years old bug) and closed forever.

    - Download  VSCode, it is free, easy to use, has a lot of features, highlights codes beautifully, and is very lightweight.
  • Low system requirement IDE
    reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-09-19
    VS Code is much lighter, and plays nicely with C#
  • Beginner with Java
    In my own experience intellij IDEA is a great IDE but i think that it might be a little bit too heavy, if you're on a lower end machine i would suggest Apache NetBeans or the solution i am using right now is, Visual Studio Code with the Java extension with OpenJDK for smaller projects (For learning it should do)
  • Free Cross-Platform IDE (MacOS, Windows, possibly iPadOS) that i can use for Python, Web Design and maybe App Design?

    It's also nice to have a code editor with Svelte extension (e.g. VSCode with svelte-vscode extension).
  • Adding the log component to an Angular application

    IDE (e.g. Visual Studio Code)
  • Good sign for WYSIWYG
    I don't see obsidian being modified to support multiple vaults in a single instance any time soon. If you really do need to be able to operate on all your vaults from a single process, use any competent text editor with good markdown support. vscode has very robust markdown (and mermaid and latex...etc) support. In the tree above, you would just open the Vaults/ folder in vscode and can then arbitrarily create files/folders in any of the vaults.

  • How do I use .rpy files in Monika After Story?
    reddit.com/r/DDLCMods | 2021-09-16
    The github has some advice and guidelines for contributing. As for editing rpy files, technically any text editor will work (even just notepad) but a code editor will make it easier. I like visual studio code.
  • Todos: The Hard Parts

    But still, frontend development is pretty damn hard! And that makes sense. Web applications can have interfaces as complex as IDEs and data exchange layers as complex as distributed databases.
