Why would someone make a tutorial video about something they have never used and don't have the first clue how to use it? I've used sublime, atom, notepad, and a few others and VSCode is the nicest, and easiest I've ever used and will not switch back to any other. This nutcase is taking 10 steps to do a 1 step process. Whatever it is you DO KNOW, stick to that cause this ain't it. I think there is some kind of hospital looking for you somewhere.

Jason Thompson (1 month ago)
ah man, another one! I'm trying to decide to dust off my sublime text or try atom. I just dabble with the HMTL/CSS/Javascript trio. How does VS Code stack up for beginners or designers learning to code?
Jason Thompson (1 month ago)
+The Coding Train I totally agree. The more powerful the less intuitive for beginners. I'm going to dive into atom and see how in like it I have some Dev background . . . So no I'm not afraid. Lol. Nothing a reinstall can't fix. 😂
The Coding Train (1 month ago)
I am enjoy using it quite a bit! I love Atom too. None of these tools are really designed for beginners but worth giving a try for sure!
Hogarth McMallian (1 month ago)
how do you run the code?
The Coding Train (1 month ago)
I use a node server (which I show in a subsequent video). But there are many other ways too!
LordBeelzabub Thegreat (1 month ago)
you can also control wheel to increase or decrease font size too.....
LordBeelzabub Thegreat (1 month ago)
well, I could be wrong, idk if apple products allow for a mouse with a wheel to exist, it takes up so much space after all.... it would explain why a person would go through that many steps though.....

I hate to admit it, but as a diehard Linux user, I love VS Code. Professionally I have to code a lot of .NET. VS Code integrates a powershell env and .NET core easily. MS-SQL server is free for dev and has a Linux version, and integrates quite well. Git, TFS, I can do a lot of my work and collaborations before I have to touch Windows at all. In a nutshell, all .NET and interpreted languages are perfect for VS Code. It's just so clean, easy to use, and makes cross platform dev a lot easier.

You can change the font size on the fly also with ctrl+ and ctrl -. VScode is "just" a webpage desktop app with Chromium under the hood :)

Hello Daniel, First of all, thank you for being the greatest and funniest programming teacher of all time. I've learned a lot from you and I truly admire and appreciate your hard work on generously sharing your knowledge to the world. I have two tutorial requests in regards to your workflow methods that I believe could save many people's lives: 1- "How to create a library for Processing" - I have certain classes that I like to use in my future sketches without having to copy-paste my codes. 2- "How to set up an external text editor for coding in Processing and easily 'Save As' any individual file of the sketch without having to create new folders with duplicated files and somehow force the editor to compile all the code files from specified paths that are not necessarily inside the same folder" - hope I was clear. Thank you in advance! :)

Just started today as a web dev. We’re using vs code so this was super informative and coincidental!

Use Prettier instead of Beautify.
Kamil Bugajak (2 months ago)
Of course don't forget about magical "Ctrl + ` " command to open your built-in terminal. Most handy feature in this editor in my opinion
The Coding Train (1 month ago)
Thanks for the tip!
Kamil Bugajak (2 months ago)
Btw. currently there are 3 extensions for p5.js (one of them has your face in a thumbnail XD) I think the last one (p5canvas) is extremely cool. It allows you to show your canvas right in VSCode instead of opening the file in browser
Kamil Bugajak (2 months ago)
Btw. after working with VSCode commercially for about one year I can recommend you some MUST-HAVE extensions: - GitLens (VSCode default GIT is good and handy and GitLens gives him a lot (like... A LOT) more features) - Bracket Pair Colorizer - vscode-spotify - One Dark Pro (Atom's default color scheme... the best in the world in my opinion) - Color Highlight - Debugger for Chrome - Live Server - Intellisense (for languages or technologies you want.) - QUOKKA (It's so extremely cool when you want to learn something with just outputing some data to console. Quokka gives you the opportunity to show the output in CODE LIVE) - Trailing spaces (to remove unnesecary white characters)
The Coding Train (1 month ago)
Thanks for these!
Joseph C Bugajski (2 months ago)
First, your last name is very similar to my last name, and that's unusual. I can almost guarantee that means our ancestors lived next to the same Polish river back in the day. Second, I use all of those extensions except Spotify and color highlight, and I'm installing those right now.
Kamil Bugajak (2 months ago)
8:25 You can also install keymaps via extensions which will allow you to use keyboard shortcuts from other IDE's like Atom, Webstorm, Sublime etc.
Kamil Bugajak (2 months ago)
7:40 Just use Command + Shift + P. It'll show you all functions that your extensions have :D In this case, you could just type "Bea" and VSCode will know that you might want to Beautify this file
Camrone Hassell (2 months ago)
can i use vscode to replace both p*5 and processing? O_o
AskEpic (2 months ago)

Nice video! Take a look at the prettier repo and extension, it’s similar to beautify but more opinionated in terms of styling.

Why don't you use Atom any more or why not use vim like real man do? :)

Useful and entertaining 👍. Thank you. I liked the install to path 👍🤓
Spongman (2 months ago)
as well as/instead of increasing the document font size, you can also zoom the whole environment (in the view menu) which will also make all the rest of the UI easier to see for video presentation.
mannob (1 month ago)
Indeed, for presentations on a screen CMD-+/- (Ctrl-+/-?) while either a file or the UI has focus zooms in and out nicely and quick. Use it while teaching a lot. Nice, flexible and quick.

How do u managed to get autocomplete working? Extension?
niter43 (2 months ago)
Simply open/save as .js file?
philosopheezy (2 months ago)
Are you thinking of "intellisense" ? That's what VS Code calls their feature that shows you the methods on objects, etc. There are different ones for different file types though, I believe JavaScript files automatically have it
Alex (2 months ago)
VSC is slow. Why not Atom?
Spongman (2 months ago)
really? i have run both on many machines for a while now. i have never seen atom be faster than vsc.
JaJeJJ (2 months ago)
Because atom is slower than code lol

How come u dont use the integrated terminal
Spongman (2 months ago)
you can also configure which shell is used in the vscode terminal, just in case it's not using zsh (or whatever) by default. the fact that you can toggle it simply with a single keypress, ctrl-click filenames/urls in it to open, set up build/run tasks, etc... make it way more convenient than switching to a separate program.
The Coding Train (2 months ago)
I like all the features that iTerm has? Plus I sometimes do a lot of stuff in terminal without Code open? But maybe I should explore using it more. ..
Caene (2 months ago)
I love the way you go into it without prior knowledge where things exactly are. Makes it easier for people to learn, I think. The whole mental process of finding the features and how to get them to work. Great stuff! Been using vscode for almost a year now, and I'm super happy with it. Clean, fast, and has great features.

NoMercy8008 (2 months ago)
First of all, thanks a lot for your videos! I never really comment (and I'm really sorry for that!), but I'ven been watching you on YouTube for a while now and I really really enjoy your style of teaching and your ways of conveying all your enthusiasm and all the fun you have doing what you're doing! Not only did I learn probably more than anywhere else, but I've also never seen any other coding videos which are so *inspiring* and creative :) Can't thank you enough for that! There are no words that can accurately describe all your awesomeness! :) I've also got a small question for you: In pretty much all your videos up to this point you've been using either Atom or Sublime as your main text editor, and I wonder what's your reason for switching to VS Code?
NoMercy8008 (2 months ago)
Thanks for the answer! And I see, it's always fun to try out and learn new things :)
The Coding Train (2 months ago)
Thank you for the nice comment! To be honest, I don't have any big reason for switching other than trying new things, I see others using VSCode and encouraging me to try, and I also wonder if Atom will continue to be supported now that Microsoft acquired GitHub.

Social Justice Warrior you can now install the .NET core packages onto Linux! I’m so happy to finally move away from windows completely. Linux all the way
Social Justice Warrior (1 month ago)
Moved from Windows OS toLinux, was great. Tried VS Code o linux, ran into .net shortcomings really quick. Ended up being forced to go back to Windows just for Visual Studio and the full .net experience. I also did try Mono while I was on Linux, bu it was always behind on .net updates which made sharing projects with group member that use Windows very difficult.
