  Configure vscode remote development extension
July 1   |   Vs

Recently, vscode add a new extension Remote Development that allow us to connect to a remote project via SSH, Containers or WSL.

I'm using it to connect to a local linux server using SSH.

  1. Install the extension Remote Development

  2. Configure SSH

    To configure from Mac OS (~/rs_pub.id):

       ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096
       sh-copy-id jorgeanaya@host-fqdn-or-ip-goes-here

  3. Configure the access SHIFT+CMD+P

    • 3.1 Remote SSH: Connect to Host
    • 3.2 Configure SSH Hosts …
    • 3.3 Select ~/.ssh/config

  Use cmder as your default terminal in vscode
April 4   |   Vs

Cmder is a powerful console emulator that has a lot of features and brings some of the joy of working in terminal from macos/linux to windows. I've been using it for a while and always forget how to configure in visual studio code, so, follow these two steps to configure as default terminal:

  1. Create a bat file in your Cmder folder


    @echo off
    SET CurrentWorkingDirectory=%CD%
    SET CMDER_ROOT=C:\cmder
    CALL "%CMDER_ROOT%\vendor\init.bat"
    CD /D %CurrentWorkingDirectory%

  2. In VSCode open configurations and setup the next json values | Use Ctrl + , to open settings.json


    "terminal.integrated.shell.windows": "C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\cmd.exe",
    "terminal.integrated.shellArgs.windows": ["/K", "C:\\cmder\\vscode.bat"],
    "terminal.integrated.fontFamily": "Fira Mono for Powerline", /_ Font is optional _/
