I'm having a really annoying issue with #VSCodium, sometimes it will instant-scroll up or down by a lot, depending on whether I start to scroll up or down.
I am currently using a touchpad, and it seems to happen only after the last update (I use the #Debian package). Does anyone else have this issue as well?
Will check whether it happens with a mouse as well.
Some delays on posting to my new Hugo blog because I'm trying to get a clean working setup on my new Mac Mini! It's quite a task to manually move over from a 10y+ computer to a new one! Gonna try to install some #opensource alternatives while I'm at it; e.g. #Lulu instead of #LittleSnitch, #VScodium instead of #VScode, #Espanso instead of #Atext... Also looking into #foss versions of #spotlight, like #ueli or #quicksilver. And cheers to #homebrew, I can't imagine installing each by .dmg!

@governa You can disable telemetry in #VSCode https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/getstarted/telemetry Does #VSCodium offer any other (#privacy) benefits?
Whew. It took me way longer to figure out how to sync #VSCodium settings between machines than I'm willing to admit. My use case, I'm using VSCodium and want to sync settings between Linux and macOS.
The answer is use this plugin: https://github.com/zokugun/vscode-sync-settings
Then I couldn't make it work with a remote git so I synced it to a local folder, which is then synced with Dropbox.
for the #coders out there. I have been using #VSCodium for a few weeks now. It works very well and apparently has no surveillance kruft like VS (track your) Code. Two draw backs for me. Colour scheme for functions and dataclasses not working as desired. Occasionally Go To Definition doesn't. Extensions work well. Loving it.
@panigrc @johanbove yes, I've been using the #Dendron plugin with #VSCodium. The resulting graphs are pretty, but I don't find them very useful. Then again, I had less than 100 Notes. Notes can also be tagged and the graphs can show both links and tags.
I never really learned the hot-keys, but ctrl-shift-P allows searching, so it's not hard to explore the functions available
The documentation is good. Unfortunately their video demos are high rez, so have tiny, unreadable fonts on YouTube.
just saw a youtube tutorial refer to sublime text as a free editor 🙄
it is not free nor is it open source. #SublimeText is fully #proprietary paid software that allows you to evaluate it. costs $99 to purchase access to releases for three years, then you have to do it again. it's also aging super hard. i wouldn't recommend it to new developers. #vscode / #vscodium has so many more features and is actually free.
Since it uses #text-generation-webui as a backend, it's compatible with machines with and without GPUs and doesn't require a Docker server like Fauxpilot.
This demo is local CPU inference only with a laptop i7, with the model WizardCoder python 13b.
Closing #vscodium and re-opening it, gets rid of the tomato-effect and the errors but I'd like to know what causes it and if there is a better way of dealing with it.
Just gone down a rabbit hole trying to get #vscodium running on #Arch #Linux.
Out of curiosity I've been looking at trying it out for #C64 #C128 coding on #Linux. Previously I was using #IDE65XX but after seeing a few YT videos using #vscode I thought I'd give it a go.
First of all... I know nothing about software development / IDEs etc so this was a bit of an adventure.
@nikku It worked. Here a short summary:
1. search for the extension on marketplace.visualstudio.com
2. download extension in "Resources" section with "Download Extension".
3. install the `.vsix` file using the terminal command.
4. extension appears in the #VSCodium in section Extensions.
Command: `codium --install-extension ~/Downloads/bpmn-io.vs-code-bpmn-io-0.16.1.vsix `
Just switched to #vscodium from #vscode, (preserving the MS extension marketplace) using the well written migration guidance: https://github.com/VSCodium/vscodium/blob/master/DOCS.md #easypeasy
the performance impact (ie. amount of CPU cycles on idle) is enormous!
Should have done this years ago
We've enabled GitHub discussions for our public #DataTools & new #ProDataTools 🛠️ users to ask questions, request new features, and share ideas on how to improve them for the data scientists and devs using #VSCode, #VSCodium and #AzureDataStudio.
@Akiko Here's a few for you:
#VSCodium - VSCode without the telemetry/tracking.
#Syncthing - Keeps things up to date on all my devices.
#Artisan - For coffee roasting with my #HGBM roaster.
#KeePassXC - Manages all my passwords.
#Obsidian - Note taking app using markdown files. Can sync with git.
#Tmux - Very powerful and extensible terminal multiplexer. Highly recommended for developers.
I mention some more that have impressed me on my travel Pi:
These two editors are using the same font (CommitMono), same size (13px) and same theme (Tokyo Night, albeit with differences in implementation), and yet text seems much less clear in #vscode / #vscodium than in #helix. VSCodium seems to be rendering the font as thicker and adding line height by default.
Any ideas why?
Do folks do #introduction posts here? Here’s mine:
I’m a #Neurodivergent #PossiblyAutistic web developer specializing in user interfaces and front end tech. #Husband, 3x #DogDad, #guitar player, recovering #Artist, and occasional #GrownUp.
I’ve been known to hoard #fonts. I collect modest #watches. I miss my #friends and #SummerBreak. I thrive on #HeavyMetal, especially the #Scandinavian stuff. 🤘
I strive to fill my digital life with #FLOSS / #OpenSource software. I’m a recent #Neovim convert from #VSCodium and hardly miss it. My battery sure as 🔥 doesn’t.
I’ve tried Zettlr. It wasn’t for me. In addition to my other hangups mention above, I’m desperate to eliminate #Electron-based apps from my life. That’s why I’ve dropped #VSCodium in favor of #NeoVim as my code editor. Sadly, that leaves me precious few choices for note/#pkm apps.

seems like python language server by microsoft now doesn't work on opensource alternative to VSCode, VSCodium. All features by language server just don't work and outputs this bullshit into it's output.
It's the latest version of lsp v2023.10.1
I recently installed the flatpak version of vscodium. Frustratingly, #python could not be detected, meaning code completion was not possible.
But I found a solution and posted it here:
I basically needed to allow permission to my home directory, I think because the virtualenv Python executable just links to the home python executable.
Here my development setup on two screens with VSCodium and Godot 4. Currently I'm working on Futsal Manager ⚽
I really like the Godot Code Editor, but I use VSCodium also at work and it simply fits more code on the screen and lets me work better.
B-b-but #VSCode is also partially proprietary! Microsoft is also for-profit and also has a sketchy EULA!
Well, at least VSCode is trying, and while Microsoft certainly has their issues, the core of VSCode being #FOSS and enabling things like #vscodium is still a net win for both the FOSS and development community.
Say what you want, but VSCode was undeniably a catalyst on the editor stage that brought about a major leap forward on many fronts. Its language server model was quickly adopted as a defacto standard across many other editors, its massive extensibility has been repeatedly modeled in other software, and its unrelenting release cadence adding QoL feature after feature so consistently is a bar I'd like to see any other projects achieve.
Si tu savais comment je code ça... 🙈
Je ne sais même pas s'il y a plus simple aujourd'hui. 🙃
En tout cas, pour mes pages de correction d'exercices, j'irai sur mon petit outil #MD2HTML. 😁
Un nouveau billet ! 📰
Ce billet sera mis à jour au cours de la journée en mettant à disposition mes ressources personnelles dediées/issues de ces différents outils.
For everyone who loves #VSCodium, the extensions marketplace OpenVSX needs people who can help with its funding and governance.
It will go out of commission at the end of this month if there isn't enough interest.
📶 Please boost to let more people know!
Allein den Editor #VScodium so zu trimmen, dass #prettier und #eslint mit den Konfigs in #react zusammenarbeiten war echt nervtötend.
Für das Backend mit #python #cgi wird das nicht so nervenaufreibend werden, hoffe ich...
#vscode had a security update in version 1.77.2. In #flathub, the only up to date #flatpak package is #vscodium. Code - OSS is stuck at 1.74.3 since January, Visual Studio Code is at 1.76.2 since a month. Flathub should more aggressively remove unmaintained packages which lack quick security fixes. #security
I spent the whole day (~13 hours) only in #KDE #Kate for a python project instead of #vscodium. I should say, it is such a clean and snappy editor with many customizable features. These are things that helped me a lot today:
Ctrl+Alt+i to the for "Function Actions" which is equivalent to Ctrl+Shift+p of vscoduim or M-x in #Emacs
Ctrl+Alt+, to show and edit keybindings
Everything else can be easily configured.
I should say the out of the box python workflow is much better than python.el
@colinkiama So right now I use #PyCharm & #VScodium [a debloated fork of #VisualStudio: Code w/o telemetry bs!] to do #TSV's & #MarkDown (using matching add-ons that show previews and color-highlight syntax).
Yes, I feel there's an uptick in interest to implement #C2S, which is nice.
Haven't tried it yet, but looks useful wrt features.
This could be an unpopular opinion (sorry not sorry! XD), but no matter what some people say, I find #PHP code, specially when done with #Laravel... Beautiful! Today I discovered Pint for formatting, and I think I have found a fine collection of plugins for #VSCodium that really work well with Laravel, Blade templates, PHPUnit... The fun is overcoming the initial frustration (it's been my first framework!), and things are slowly getting done, what's not to love? :D
@anildash *nodds in agreement*
I value my mental health more than my exploitability for #wagework!
Most recently spacemacs was the choice, which is a fusion with #vi.
So, I'm happy to hear about #VSCodium. Thanks!
Even though I dumped Atom for VSCodium (which I was not too jazzed about) I think I'm going to dump VSCodium to go to Pulsar which is still early but the best fork of Atom I've seen so far so hooray. 🥳
#Workaround for #VSCode / #VSCodium error "Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.secrets: Timeout was reached" is to run `gnome-keyring-daemon -f` (the actual binary that implements secret management functionality) in a terminal in foreground
I know it's a pain in the rear, but nothing else helped.
@gallaugher I haven't used #Pybricks with the kids yet. We have an FLL (First Lego League) Challenge team and two Exploro teams. The team has a Spike Prime kit, and I got one for home use (and for my kids).
With the updates that have come to Pybricks, I plan to use it for the team next year. I'd love to know what you doing with the Pis!
@rasterweb Illegal only for their weird Microsoft shit, AFAIK. Live Share is one example.
Rest of the extensions are provided by extension authors and you can just grab VSIX and install in #VSCodium. In case VSIX is not available, grab source code of the extension and build it (haha <insert "#npm install" joke here>). 😎
I have been thinking of using a version control system to keep track of my tex files. I want to escape the curse that is "project_final_v2_FINAL (copy).tex"
I found this  tutorial to be useful.
