  1. They're pretty good at watching what you do. They had plenty of practice with Windows 10 FYI, OS/X can be just as intrusive, but try telling that to a fanboi ....
  2. I have and it's the closest thing to MAMP available on Linux when I looked around last year. For myself, I'm not too bothered about the "bloat" and I'd rather maximise time spent solving real issues. So I was happy to use it when I had to do some Processwire work.
  3. If you're in the mood for trying out a different distro, I can heartily recommend PopOS. I've been using it for a year now, and I will never go back to OS/X as a dev environment. https://itsfoss.com/pop-os-linux-review/
  4. Having just set up Settings Sync across just 2 machines, I can see why Bernhard said it is clunky. Entering Tokens / GistIds for each new configuration is a pain. Something more integrated or baked into VS Code would be the ideal solution. Or Coder.com. Will load up my extensions there and see how that goes. Update : I mentioned running Docker in an earlier post. Perhaps it is not the cure-all I thought it was. https://medium.com/canal-tech/why-using-docker-in-your-local-dev-environment-is-probably-not-a-great-idea-3836c6823d60
  5. I think the Github acquisition all ties back to selling Cloud and other services to the Developer community. MS is now a services company as Nadella likes to state. I guess future iterations of Github where it integrates with Azure and other MS Products will be the telltale sign
  6. Unless of course, you get your German mate to set up coder in a server running in his lounge room (he did it in like under 10mins) and first impressions are pretty impressive. I'm using Coder from Australia connecting to a home server in Germany, and the limited experience I have is pretty good. Latency is expected but better than I thought. I haven't installed extensions that I normally use and I should sftp across a project I'm working on to fully test it out. But just opening/editing files seem pretty good so far. A bit busy at the moment, but when I get a chance to test it out in anger, will let you know.
  7. I only did a basic course years ago, but once you build a Container with all your dev env set up, it's just a matter of using that same container in different machines. Any future updates or changes, you can just do it the reference container and reuse the same container in as many places as you wish. Also, sounds like an awesome excuse to try out Docker and see if you like. I know a friend whos been doing this for years and always trying to get me to do it, but laziness wins sensibility most of the time UPDATE : Looks like coder solves the running vscode in Docker problem
  8. I wish I had that problem too lol #1stWorldCodingProblems As everything in VS Code, there will be extension to solve your problem. Have you looked at this? https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=Shan.code-settings-sync Or if you want the same Development experience no matter the machine or location, have you considered setting a dev environment in Docker?
  9. Couple of extensions I've been using for a few weeks that haven't been mentioned here yet. (as far as I can tell) Bracket Pair Colorizer : Nested Brackets can be a nightmare to debug and is a pet hate of mine. This extension will save you, unless you're colourblind in the default colours . But I'm sure you can tweak the colours if it comes to that. ext install CoenraadS.bracket-pair-colorizer Path Intellisense : If I have to explain what this does, we're definitely not on the same path. ext install christian-kohler.path-intellisense Material Icon Theme: I know Material Design was mentioned before. This is an alternative one. Not sure what the difference is between the 2 but I'm using the Winter is Coming theme, and there seems to be an overlap between this and the Material Design theme. ext install PKief.material-icon-theme Winter is Coming theme: Any GoT fans out there? ext install johnpapa.winteriscoming
  10. It's not as foolproof as you might think it is. https://hackernoon.com/why-you-should-never-save-passwords-on-chrome-or-firefox-96b770cfd0d0
  11. I realised that after I posted. Unfortunately, I can't seem to delete posts .... so sorry about that Amigo
  12. Trialing Lastpass after going to a talk given by the author of https://haveibeenpwned.com/ last night. I figure if you don't get one after that, you're just asking for to be pwned.
  13. There's a big list of VS Code extensions here that is regularly updated. https://github.com/viatsko/awesome-vscode
