Taking VSCodium for a spin

  • A lot of containerization, including Dockerfile, docker-compose.yml, and soon Kubernetes manifests
  • Some Python for scripting jobs — I abandoned Kotlin Scripting for this
  • A bit of Lua because I want to learn it as part of my job
  • A bit of Rust because I want to learn it for fun
  • A bit of Kotlin because I still love it
  • Auto-completion, enhanced with the TabNine plugin
  • Running and debugging
brew install vscodium
  1. Find how to set a breakpoint — it’s the leftmost gutter in the editor view
  2. Multiline edit — [Opt + Cmd + Arrow]
  3. Remember to save after editing! I had to forget to save after switching from Eclipse to IntelliJ IDEA; now I need to remember it again. Life is a circle.
  1. Zooming with the mouse. Go to menu VSCodium > Preferences > Settings and search for “zoom”.
  2. View each Git commit and navigate from one to the other. The default Git view is not enough. I installed GitLens, adding the feature to the Git view.
