In my last post, I wrote about the RxJava share operator. This week, I have a few quick IDE tidbits!
I've written about some fun IDE plugins before in Tidbit #6, but I recently got a new work laptop, and in the process of reinstalling Android Studio discovered a new one!
Previously I had been using the NyanCat progress bar (because work should be fun!), but when I found out there's a MARIO PROGRESS BAR I knew I needed to check it out:
If Mario isn't your thing, that's ok - there are a LOT of different options, depending on your preferences:
I've used Visual Studio before at a previous job, and VS Code is a fine editor, but I've really gotten used to working in Android Studio. For me, part of the biggest challenge of switching development languages is changing tools.
The good news is, I discovered a plugin for VS Code that applies many of Android Studio's keyboard shortcuts to VS Code! You can find it here: https://github.com/kasecato/vscode-intellij-idea-keybindings
This type of plugin is available for many other different editors. So, if you're moving to a new project, and aren't comfortable with the tools, see if there's a keymapping plugin that will make the editor behave like one you already know!
Two questions this time:
- What editor has your favorite keybindings? (Not your favorite editor per-se - I'm not trying to start a vi vs. emacs war)
- What is your preferred progress bar for Android Studio? Standard? Nyan Cat? Mario? Something else?
Let me know in the comments!
