“Code” is the name of Microsoft’s new lightweight code editor. It’s been out since April but it seemed like this project was a good opportunity to use it properly.
Lots of the docs talk about using Grunt and Gulp to run your tasks, but that seemed like overkill for running a single command to build and run my code.
It turns out that you can configure your
project.json with a list of commands which then appear in the palette.
A couple of small lines and now I can run my code directly from inside Code, hurray!
