While it might seem reasonable to create this discussion in the form of a poll, the built-in poll in Discourse is rather too limited, so I hope to get RedwoodJS user’s feedback in the form of a reply to this post, which should be not perceived as advertisement, but rather people’s preferences on Application Development Tooling (not RedwoodJS framework development tooling)
Based on my own experience acquired in testing Redwood Tutorial I, my guess would be that relatively few people favor VSCode over the “classic” (Redwood CLI / Console Terminal - Yarn - npm) set. Since one of my projects includes writing the Developing Redwood Projects on Windows document, I created the RedwoodJS and VSCode section to discuss and define VSCodesettings issues
Since VSCode is a platform-independent tool, just like the “classic” (Redwood CLI / Console Terminal - Yarn - npm) set, even if you are not using VSCode please define the application development tools you are using. This will ensure that the setting.json maintained in this document which are used in:
yarn create redwood-app ./my-app
ensure identical application skeleton created across all platforms and development tools.
An example of different behavior between running the Jest tests in VSCode and the “classic” tooling is described in Test suite failed to run issue. The different behavior is a consequence of VSCode trying to run as many tasks in parallel as possible, including running the tests even before
node_modules is built.
Information expected to be gathered
If you use VSCode already, please supply a copy of your VSCode settings (kept in
.vscode\settings.json file from each OS you run VSCode).
Otherwise, please use the information in the Details section of this post, to figure out what data can help me to unify all these different
