    Project mention: VS Code Running on device with code-server and UTM | | 2021-12-02

    Im using UTM with the Debian 10.4 ARM image from the gallery. I port forwarded guest port 8080 to host port 22222 then installed code-server using the script. In the code-server config.yaml set the ip address to and run code-server. Then go to localhost:22222 and the code-server login screen should be there.

  • GitHub repo SpaceVim

    A community-driven modular vim/neovim distribution - The ultimate vimrc

    Project mention: What's the difference between Vim/Emacs? Do they do they same thing? New to Linux and can't decide which to use! | | 2021-11-11

    Then Spacemacs is probably the most nicely configured editor in existence. It improves over Vim by making the SPC the central leader key, and adding highly intuitive mnemonic keybindings. Really, check out Spacemacs for 5 minutes, and I guess you will understand the beautiful concept and using it you will have the power of Emacs and Vim combined (and improved on) in one. You should not just take my words without checking them, but I can tell you that I have checked out the various 'Spacemacs imitations', spacevim, vspacecode, atom with which-key, but they all pale by comparison to Spacemacs (Doom emacs is a good competitor but personally I prefer Spacemacs and definitely I would recommend it over Doom for beginners).

  • GitHub repo theia

    Eclipse Theia is a cloud & desktop IDE framework implemented in TypeScript.

    Project mention: Fleet, a Lightweight IDE from JetBrains | | 2021-11-29

    That's a very fair point to make, but as a consumer, that's probably a good thing - having a healthy competition in the industry, it seems that even the likes of Eclipse are attempting to branch out somewhat:

    The next decade in tooling will hopefully be promising!

  • GitHub repo vscodium

    binary releases of VS Code without MS branding/telemetry/licensing

    Project mention: Best linux distro without telemetry for doing some webdev ? been told now Ubuntu as some telemetry in snap and even Vscode as some ? which distro is best that still work with most software / hardware ? | | 2021-11-30

    Regarding VScode, there are alternative versions like VSCodium where some things like telemetry are disabled or removed. However, this also affects some functions such as the synchronisation of settings or the use of the official marketplace.

  • GitHub repo Visual Studio Code

    Project mention: VS Code is now in the browser | | 2021-10-27

    You can learn more about VS Code from here but recently they release their online IDE like StackBlitz , CodeSandbox , Replit etc. Those tools are also cool 😎 but using VS Code long period of time it easier to me for managing everything with that and the web version of VS Code is same as it is like their desktop version which I used to. You can do almost everything with the web version of VS Code though some extensions are not available now but what they have that's good enough for you.

  • GitHub repo Rust Language Server

    Repository for the Rust Language Server (aka RLS)

    Project mention: Show HN: Skruv – No-dependency, no-build, small JavaScript framework | | 2021-04-07

    I have tried writing websites with rust instead of JavaScript. Unfortunately, the tooling is just not there. More specifically, I am talking about wasm-bindgen, which provides two-way bindings. The problem with it is that since all the declarations are generated with, there is no autocompletion. Since I am spoiled by modern tooling, no autocompletion to me means not feasible pass demo stage. (

    Aside from the lack of autocompletion, passing rust closures to js land (DOM) is extremely janky as well. However, that might be caused by my lack of experience with rust.

    (If you are curious, this is what I made:

  • GitHub repo GoSublime

    A Golang plugin collection for SublimeText 3, providing code completion and other IDE-like features.

    Project mention: Go in Sublime Text 3 | | 2021-01-01

  • GitHub repo Recaf

    The modern Java bytecode editor

    Project mention: GitHub Projects to Contribute | | 2021-11-17

    For example, I marked this as a good first issue since the fix is actually documented and the issue contains instructions on how to properly fix. All you need to test out is running the program on a VM.

  • GitHub repo ccls

    C/C++/ObjC language server supporting cross references, hierarchies, completion and semantic highlighting

    Project mention: Fleet, a Lightweight IDE from JetBrains | | 2021-11-29

    > Have you tried a C/C++ lsp server like

    I never tried it and to me that's not acceptable or desirable. I want an IDE/text editor that works, and not adopt yet another tool that needs maintenance and configuration and attention.
