Call to action for all VS Code users!

Earlier today, I was noodling around on VSCodeTips (— a Forem community dedicated to sharing tips & tricks on how to best leverage VS Code) and realized it was high time I amplified it here on DEV so the rest of you can explore this relevant and practical community. VSCodeTips is managed by @nickytonline — a longtime DEV member, contributor to Forem, and former Forem core team member.

VSCodeTips

A community about your favourite editor, VS Code

favicon community.vscodetips.com

In addition to keeping up with all things VS Code on DEV, I encourage you to head over and join this space which will enable you to explore sub-categories like extensions, themes, shortcuts, etc.

👉 Join VSCodeTips now.

Happy VSCoding! 🎉


One last thing. You’ll notice "Sign up with Forem" as an option on these Forems. This is a service we now offer to most seamlessly navigate the ecosystem and manage your identity. We want you to be able to bring your full self without having to bring your full data, so making this distributed ecosystem as straightforward as possible in the long run is really important. Create a Forem account and connect it with your DEV account via your settings. 🙂

Honestly I’m struggling with VSCode at the moment. I use PHPStorm for work and I started using VSCode for personal and it’s definitely something to get used to! 🤦🏼‍♀️

Same energy. I feel like if I could easily navigate, via kb, between split tabs (and ideally move them w/ a kb shortcut, I would feel a lot better about it. Also if VSCode took notes from PHPStorm's search... that'd be rad.

There’s tonnes of shortcuts and a lot of your browser shortcuts are the same in VS Code. For example closing and reopening tabs. You can do split panes, Zen mode, and a bunch of other things.

Ahhh, did some more looking and came close with these hook ups.
cmd + ctrl + 1 or 9 = move editor to another group for View: Move Editor into First Group
cmd + alt + left/right = swap editor groups for View: Navigate to the View on the Left/Right
cmd + \ = split for View Split Editor

All but left right was default. I had to remove the default binding for the left right, but I feel it works better this way.
