So I went ahead and downloaded the free VSCode to give it a test drive, and so while this question isn’t directly PowerShell related, I figured I’d ask the group here in case anyone else is coding with it for their PS needs.
One of the “niceties” of ISE is that little window on the bottom that is essentially just an open PS session. I can easily, while smashing away like a mad scientist, simply cut-n-paste a snippet of code “down there” and make sure it’s doing what I think ti will. Now VSCode has these really fancy things like pester, and debug entries and other fancy test automation … but is there something as simple as a session window I can open for a fast and dirty test?
I often feel like VSCode is like going back to wordperfect … tons of options if you happen to have all the various hotkeys memorized and I need a keyboard cutout to place over my function keys … (am I showing my age?).
So how on earth does one actually just “try a quick snippet of code” in VSCode?
