Is there a way to edit dev.to post directly on VSCode?

Dev.to editor it's good but needs jump between help, markdown, and preview "tabs".

I like the way that VSCode handles editing files on MarkDown and the ability to see a preview at the side.

It's there a way to activate these powers on the web or edit directly on VSCode?

Will be good if can download something like repo and can make commits 😀

I don't think so at the moment, it would require a public API and a VSCode extension. There's a feature request on accessing posts via git github.com/thepracticaldev/dev.to/... and one on a public API github.com/thepracticaldev/dev.to/...

Main thing standing in between us and a public API right now is token management. Basically a user should have_many tokens and should be able to create/destroy them.

The actual API endpoints are pretty straightforward once that happens. And the token management is pretty straightforward as well. We just need to make it happen.
