Trying out Visual Studio Code
Yesterday Microsoft held Build 2015 and presented lots of nice things to the developer community. I have always loved Microsoft's developer tools, and started using Visual Studio back in 1997, hacking away with Visual Basic and Visual C++.
Now I still use Visual Studio at work, but for my personal projects, I mostly do web development in PHP and sometimes ASP.NET MVC. For the PHP projects, I have been using Komodo Edit for a while now, and am happy with it.
Visual Studio Code
A couple of HTML IntelliSense suggestions
- Allowed attribute values should be suggested, like when typing
<link rel=", I would like a popdown list to suggest things like
stylesheetand so on.
- Element suggestion should only include elements that make sense in the context. Directly inside an
<ul>element, there is no point in suggesting a
<template>elements make any sense.
What will make me switch
The editor is really nice to work with, it feels snappy and does things well. Changing personal settings is done in JSON, which is cool, because JSON... Until PHP IntelliSense is added, and some improvements are made in HTML editing, I will stick to Komodo Edit, but I will probably switch to Visual Studio Code eventually.
