    No worries!
    Many people download web browsers every day.

    If its the telemetry that you are worried about, then just use VSCodium.

    Welcome to the darkside, we have cookies 🍪

    What are you using it for??

    @Agred i just needed something on my windows side so that I could fix things when edge decides it wants to be difficult and not agree with all the other browsers.

    Everyone raves about vs's vim plugin so I figured I'd put it to the test.

    @C0D4 svelte/sapper at the moment. one of my routes isn't loading, figured this might take a few tries to fix.

    So it may just be my determination to be difficult, but this is going downhill pretty fast.

    Is there a trick to not getting visual studio hits when looking up how to do so something?

    @M1sf3t i understood some of that 😅

    Wtf you doing wrong?

    @C0D4 i was trying to figure out how to run git from the terminal but it wasn't on here.

    I thought maybe it just had a different command or something but trying to search for it brought me back a bunch of hits of people asking if it was possible to do on visual studio 'like you can on vs code.'

    I was asking if there was a better keyword that would keep me from having to filter through all that every I ran into a problem. "Vs code" seemed to help but not by much

    @M1sf3t windows?

    need to install it separately.

    https://gitforwindows.org/

    Once installed you can add the plugins which will leverage it or just use the terminal.

    As long as you don't use it for java, you're good.

    Not that I have had any experience doing that...

    @C0D4 yea i eventually come across it, i meant in general.

    Like how you search for js because if you use javascript half your hits will be about java.

    @M1sf3t have you tried "vscode"?

    @M3m35terJ05h nope, that's much better. Thanks

    @C0D4 Cokies ? They suck. We have snickers here on the clean from telemetry but dark side still side.

    @electrineer You can't read ? I said they suck. Not that I suck them. I just like Snicker's much more

    @Ranchu can confirm, VS Code for Java sucks major ass. Thus far it only works proper with: C#(its actually pretty amazing for C#, and no wonder) JS(no wonder also), TypeScript(again), well basically anything Microsoft or JS it works well. AND surprisingly it is very good for Golang. Python? Not as good, PHP? fucking horrible. Ruby? HA

    I don't mind VS Code and I use it for some things, I try using Sublime as much as possible, my go to is normally Vim, never have issues with the plugins I use or the configuration, but sometimes I just want to use an editor without having to do tutting to get simple stuff done.

    Vim keeps being my goto for editing, but VS Code ain't as baaad as some make it out to be provided that you have a decent working computer cuz that shit is resource intensive AF

    I can't think of a better environment for C# development without having to go through standard VS

    What even.

    @electrineer he sucks the cokie up his nose with a straw 😅

    @AleCx04 @Ranchu I'll probably only be using it with js for the time being. I started on C and Rust the other day but it'll be a while before I'm concerned about cross platform support. Mostly just picking them up for a better perspective of how the computer works.

    @stonestorm it's not even that with me, gui apps, especially those developed by MS, have a tendency to just stare blankly back at you when you do something like click the button that says "clone repository" without having git installed.

    At least when I ran it in the terminal I got an error message. Not that it helped much, 'git' is not recognized could mean a variety of things. On ubu, apt would've checked to see if it existed anywhere in its directory then suggested a package to install.

    But that's the primary bitch in a nutshell, I have to learn a set a gui tools for what I'm used to just doing from a shell.

    You guys have fun with this thing, I give up. It's making remember why I loathe windows all over again.

    Speaking of windows, wtf happened to the hour glass? As much as I used to curse at the thing, it was better than just having the cursor sit there.

    @M1sf3t it changed in vista to that circle thing
  • 0
    @electrineer i wasn't even getting that in vscode. first the clone button was unresponsive, then when I tried to configure the json file for the vim ext and code became unresponsive for a minute before the extension crashed.

    I'm just gonna install chocolaty and neovim, I've got no patience for these fancier things.

    @M1sf3t vscode is not Windows
  • 0
    @electrineer I know, I'm attempting to get along with it. I haven't used windows since vista though so we're taking baby steps. First steam, now I'm debugging my web page... As long as I stay away from word and apparently vscode we should be good.

    @M1sf3t oh, I missed your comment about your windows side

  • 0
    @M1sf3t doesn't ddg use Bing search results? Even then it's unsurprising that you didn't find anything

    @AleCx04 What else do you want to use for php ? The heavy bullshit, coded in Java, that is phpstorm ?

    @MagicSowap i have a very heavily modified Vim environment that works wonders for me.
