Yeah, I know what you mean. I thought the same thing actually. It's square and compact, and there's not a lot of animations, but over time I've grown used to it and I don't mind it anymore.
I guess we are talking about pure aesthetics here
and you really can't do much using vscode themes, it is still squared and minimalistic
Yeah, you're right.
But they're always updating it and adding new features. So frequently that as you use it you can watch them slowly come in ;)
plus ecosystem of plugins that is quite extensive
ranging from useful stuff straight to parody
Yeah, they're huge on extensibility.
And rightfully so:
is there extensions API.
coming up with new ideas:
I see, you are trying to freeze my browser...
It's really big, 12k lines
I'm guessing VS 2021 is coming out next week or so,
I believe they've regularly been releasing in April
*Visual Studio, not VS Code ;)
the moment you mentioned VS it immediately triggered my survival instincts, getting out of here until it is too late :joy:
First of all, my first VS encounter was coding in VS6
and that was ages ago
I guess it was 7-8 years ago I used it last time
and things might have changed in the meantime
but I remember passionately disliking it back then
and I could only
it with resharper or whole tomato installed
It's quite a bit better, each time they improve lots of stuff.
When I have to use older version I'm surprised all of the conveniences that are lacking
But I'd think they're not as interested in it as in VS Code, they don't seem like it
but then again, I'm not an IDE type of guy so I guess my opinion here is not really relevant
if I must use one, it will be the one coming from JetBrains factory
One thing I've always loved about VS Code is the amazing multi-cursor capabilities.
You can drop cursors anywhere, alt/shift/ctrl/cmd + arrow keys, copy different text with each cursor and paste it in different positions if you have the same count of cursors as when you copied...
Does Atom have anything like that? I can't remember.
I believe it has 🤔 It is a pretty standard feature these days
Atom has a multi-cursor function that's easy to use too. I have an extension installed too that adds extra keyboard shortcuts which make it even better
specifically this extension
Atom extensions are written using CoffeeScript. For example, the one you posted:
Did they cache compilation output?
Now, I'm curious, never did proper research
How did that work, was CoffeeScript translated and executed on the fly?
You have to transpile before publishing now
if using anything other than JS
Oh, right, makes sense
Is that a recent change or things were like that from the beginning?
I believe my
or whatever extensions folder is called, was full of CoffeeScript back in the day
I don't think it was recent, no
Some packages transpile after installation
but this is not recommended
Yep, I'm officially old
