A text editor.
VSCode is Microsoft’s competitor to Atom, with a similar technology stack, but somewhat cleaner and faster.
AFAICT it’s the editor component from Visual Studio. Or is that something else? Just some shared branding without any particular shared code? IDK, don’t care enough.
Anyway, VSCode is pretty good, it turns out.
Command line not working
You want it to work from the command line for fish?
set -U fish_user_paths "/Applications/Visual Studio Code.app/Contents/Resources/app/bin" $fish_user_paths
It comes with a built-in markdown preview, but you want mathematics support, no?
You can augment native markdown preview with math support or use revamped markdown preview enhanced, which is very luxurious but hangs sometimes.
Config one needs
You config is ain a text file, whcih is charming retro but does mean that 3rd party config is at least sensible. The path location is the following:
hover/tooltip/hint/popup completions things are too intrusive
First, which is hover, which is hints etc?
The thing that hovers when you mouse over a character is hover. It probably does something useful in statically-typed languages, but ends up just being annoying in, e.g. julia.
so it activates afeter 3 seconds.
The hints are probably also being annoying, right? because instead of letting you finish a line it wants to to insert some wacky argument?
That can be toned down by language for e.g. markdown.
How about bracket closing? (brrrrr) You probably want, in your config
Aaaaahhhh that’s better.
Which language is that file?
Want to associate file types to certain languages?
Want to disable reporting to microsoft?
