I am writing this blog post because I am setting up a new Mac and I run into the little things that I take for granted but they are not available by default when you first install VS Code (my favorite editor!).
I am so used to typing
code foldername in the terminal to open a folder in VS Code. Or
code filename to open a file.
Today I did this, automatically, but the command was not found!
I had to go into VS Code, press cmd-option-P (or from the menu,
View -> Command Palette and I searched “command” and there it was:
Shell Command: Install 'code' command in PATH
I pressed enter, and the command was now available in the terminal.
