Anyone Using Visual Studio Code editor?
« on: April 10, 2017, 11:51:30 AM »
Coming from a notepad environment to code just about anything, I decided to give it VS Code a try. My ratings:

Theme: 3/5
Auto-Completion: 1/5 (way too sensitive, suggestion starts even after the first character! That is annoying)
Code folding: 5/5
Syntax Highlighting: 4/5
Noob-friendliness: 2/5 (you need to edit the JSON file)
Terminal: 4/5
Free as in free beer: 5/5
Runs on Linux too.

Share your ratings.

Does it have a listbox with found matches, as shown here?
Can you insert hyperlinks e.g. to MSDN?
Can you add e.g. \Masm32\help\opcodes.chm to the help menu?

P.S.: I just installed it. It looks certainly different 8)

Interestingly enough, the latest M$ baby is a 32-bit program. Of course, they could just recompile it to 64-bit but...

The screenshot below shows the help menu of VS code to the left, the RM help on the right. Although I do speak Italian, I can't find an entry that would allow me to find something to solve a problem. But I could "follow them on twitter", hoping that among the Million happy Micros**t users somebody had the same problem and solved it with a dozen cups of coffee. Another idea: Get a beer and potato chips to watch an "introductory video" :t

There is also a hilariously simple explanation on how to change the display language to English, maybe I'll try that one day if I have nothing else to do.
