In this post lets welcome Visual Studio Code a new member of Visual Studio family.
Visual Studio Code is a new member of Visual Studio family. In this blog post we will see how to get start with this new guy. In Build2015 , there is a presentation by Scott Hanselman, where he announced the a new tool called Visual Studio Code. Its really great presentation, where he mentioned all about this cool tool.
I can't stop my self to make a try. So, lets get started:
- Download Visual Studio Code from here: http://goo.gl/MepeHE
- This is a cross-platform, so, you can choose whatever platform you want to work
- I selected Download Code for Windows
- I amazed to see that it installed within not more than two minutes. I liked it.
- Its having cool welcome screen.
- Love to see that I can use Scafolding using Yeoman
- Great, I am ready to start.
I just try my existing WebAPI Code. Just select my existing folder by issue File -> Open Folder and I got everything there. It seems me nearly similar to Notepad++ or Sublime text but I am sure it is much more than just an editor.
It provides me intelisense.
I can Navigate within files. Need to press Ctrl + O. It remembers me Resharper
Visual Studio Code is having the ability of existing code chain:
- NodeJS (with NPM)
- Typescript etc.
- Visual Studio Code comes as Cross-platform
- It does not matter whether you work with Windows, Mac or Linux
- It provides intelligence similar to Visual Studio
- You can navigate within files in a flavor of Resharper
- If you dont really have any project setup, you can start with scaffolding using Yeoman
