Visual Studio Code vs. Atom 

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been toying with Visual Studio Code as my primary editor, seeing how it does replacing Atom. Most of my work, at the moment, is either looking at (or poorly) writing Node, or working in Terraform. Atom has some packages that offer really nice Terraform support. VS Code has a couple that offer as good (or better). And VS Code seems much better—in my limited experience—with Node than Atom does.

The one place I’ve not found the support as good is for Jekyll. I really like the Atom package that let’s me create a quick post, simply for the ability for it to automatically name the file. I haven’t found something similar in VS Code yet.

I guess maybe it’s time for me to build an extension ….
