  • learning to code with python

    On Windows, I primarily use Visual Studio Code, also called vscode and vs.code, when writing Python and PowerShell code. PowerShell code I usually develop directly on Windows. Python code I mostly develop on a Debian Windows Subsystem for Linux, also called WSL, instance on my Windows machine. This article describes how to set that up for use with vscode.

    I'm sure there are many interesting reasons to prefer Emacs to VS Code, but lack of offline documentation surely isn't one. Installing an Emacs package is not significantly easier or less technical than downloading a git repository.

    Like almost always the official documentation is the best source of knowledge. It includes resources for multiple programming languages like JavaScript, TypeScript, Java, Python, and C++. Check the official YouTube channel as well and visit the GitHub repository. VS is open source!

    At least in web development, there's a big shift to plain code editors vs. full-featured IDEs. In particular, Visual Studio Code has risen in popularity across all languages because of IDE-like features but still keeping the IDE-bloat away. Learning about the different features of the text editor you use is a multiplier to your productivity.

    I have a question, I noticed that VSCode Docsis built pretty much like the content of its GitHub repository GitHub VSCode Docs , I ask, is there any relationship between them? can I build a react project using markdown files from the GitHub? I want to write the markdown files in GitHub and use them in my react website, can I do that? Thank you much.

    And this page doesn't call it an IDE; it calls it "powerful source code editor". I think I will go with what Microsoft says in this case.

    One thing to note is that Visual Studio Code is a lightweight tool and runs on most hardware and software configurations. Like an Apple iOS update, VS Code releases a new version with new features and bug fixes every month. The latest versions of their software are installed as soon as they become available, but please note that you can select to disable these auto-updates if you’d prefer to wait to conduct the updates at your own pace.
