Every programmer needs a good text editor he or she can extend.
Microsoft’s new text editor Visual Studio Code is just such an editor.
Of course getting started writing extensions for any text editor can be a bit daunting.
That’s why I made my new Pluralsight course Hacking VS Code: Writing Your First Extension for Visual Studio Code.
In this course I’ll walk you through the basics of writing your first extension.
If you want to see the extension I use as an example you can check out Static Site Hero.
This extension is super simple, but it solves a real world need I had. If you’ve seen my first Pluralsight course Build a Better Blog with a Static Site Generator, you know I use a static site generator to produce my blog. Static Site Hero helps me insert HTML figure structures into my markdown pages via a simple wizard.
I hope you enjoy my new course, and if you do please rate it to help other people find it!
