I find using #VSCode makes using #JupyterNotebook really easy.

Weird thing happened to me while using VS Code. #JupyterNotebook stopped working and I had to delete and recreate my venv and then reinstall #ipykernel. Fortunately #VSCode makes this super easy. #Python

Setting up Vscode for C development

It seems pretty straight forward to setup vscode for zig development however can someone put me on the right path, pun intended lol, for using the Zig toolchain for pure C development in vscode.

In particular the correct setting for "C_Cpp.default.compilerPath":
on a windows installation of Zig and any other required settings to build, run and debug pure c programs.

I'm trying to figure out GUI development workflows for #Fedora #Silverblue.

I went through a whole thing to connect the #VSCode #Flatpak to a #Toolbx, and while it worked, it was kind of underwhelming. Yeah, I can access the toolbox from the editor, but I can't compile/run from the VSCode menus.

If I'm not getting full integration in the IDE, why not just have a separate terminal with the Toolbox open?

I'm not sure why I can't just compile a C++ program from VS Code due to whatever Flatpak SDKs are already on the system.

I have trouble understanding how GNOME Builder "works" for non-GNOME/Flatpak development use cases. Just getting a binary out of there seems difficult.

For now I'm just falling back to the Geany Flatpak with Toolbox in a terminal. That's simple, and it works.

I'd like to be able to compile/run C++ and Ruby from an IDE, but I don't see it happening. What about Java and Python?

I get that everything is about containers, but I'm not finding a lot of documentation that "normal" people can follow, and it's very short on "Here's a GUI IDE workflow for atomic/immutable distros that is easy and works." Is this solved in #UniversalBlue?

@CriticalSilence I'd suggest using #vscode and bash to start with, and perhaps build some console apps.

The easiest way to build graphic UI apps for Linux is to use #blazor to build interactive web apps that you can install as a #pwa to get a "smart client" experience.

There used to be some .NET support for GTK, but I don't know if that has been maintained.

I have been using Blender, on and off, since 2015 and only now am I starting to seriously delve into Python scripting in Blender. The "Hello, world!" of Python scripting in Blender is a building generator, so that is what I have started to develop. I will post updates as I make progress.

#blender #b3d #python #vscode

The beginnings of a procedurally generated building, with the Python script open in Visual Studio Code on the left and the Blender application window open on the right, respectively.

Default lint errors as underlining is such a distracting way to implement that. I can't seem to find a way to have them marked in the gutter instead. #vscode

All the cool kids say VSCode is the best.

But JFC VSCode is a royal pain in the ass.

Cannot even open a file and then keep it in an open tab. Doing any little normal thing requires tracking down howtos on SO and even then it doesn't usually work.

What the hell is in everyone's water that they love VSCode so much?

(It does do some things well. I'm just frustrated. I should be able to open as many tabs as I want without VSCode deciding for me that it's going to auto-close tabs as it sees fit.)

What’s interesting (but not surprising) is the release of #vscode #csharp tools, which has eaten into Visual Studio's market share. This is the first time Visual Studio has dropped below 50% of the #dotnet ecosystem.

@dhrystone For many people, desktop #Linux can do anything they need, whether they realize it or not. Linux users have benefited from cross-platform frameworks like #Electron that make it easy to create Linux versions of apps like #Obsidian and #VSCode. The two biggest gaps are MS Office—nothing else creates 100% compatible files—and Adobe CS. It’s more capable than #ChromeOS (you don’t have to hack it to run Linux apps) and ideal for anyone who doesn’t need Windows- or macOS-specific software.

I find it hard to believe that VS Code IDE still does not have built in support to get an expanded view of types defined in #TypeScript. You'd think #VSCode and TS engineers would've worked together to solve this by now. Thankfully there is a hack that works reasonably well but it is a hack.

Kinda bummed that this image, right near the top of the new Monaspace font page, isn’t actually achievable in VS Code, as far as I can tell.

I don't think there's a way to use different fonts for various parts of syntax highlighting.

If you need to use #Atlassian #Confluence at work and you struggle like me because its editor is not accessible for #blind #screenReader users (and they removed the source code editor and don’t want to bring it back), but you still want to create fancy wiki pages without bothering your colleagues and begging them for help, I have a lifehacky solution:
1. Open your favorite editor, mine is #VSCode.
2. Write your wiki page in plain HTML. I mean, with tags and everything.
3. Save it as an HTML file.
4. Open it in a browser.
5. Select all and copy the whole thing. Note to fellow #JAWS users: Make sure you have "Copy full content" set in Quick Settings (JAWSKey+V).
6. Paste your page in the Confluence editor. You may check that the formatting is there by skimming through, it should read headings, lists and so on, akin to how it does it in Microsoft Word.
7. Enjoy and make your colleagues enjoy too!
P.S. Atlassian products are still a piece of brown substance accessibility-wise, and it’s not chocolate, as far from that as you can imagine.
