Trying out VS Code

After a couple of weeks of using Atom I’m kicking the tires on VS Code. I like Atom, and I may continue to use it (especially given that I managed to get PHP/Drupal debugging going).

Changing Fonts

One of the first things that I couldn’t figure out how to set was my preferred editor font. Finally found the editor.fontFamily and editor.fontSize settings, which you can override. I used:

// Controls the font family.
"editor.fontFamily": "'Input Sans', Menlo, Monaco, 'Courier New', monospace",

// Controls the font size in pixels.
"editor.fontSize": 14,

Terminal

For good measure I changed up the external Terminal application to point to iTerm:

// External Terminal

// Customizes which terminal application to run on OS X.
"terminal.external.osxExec": "iTerm2.app",
