[VSCode] Visual Studio Code Newbies Pitfal

M$ just release (with hard to find link to) Visual Studio Code and yes it's temping to try another cross-platform tool, so here we go! let start with nodejs yeah!

First trap! 

$ npm install -g express
npm ERR! Error: EACCES, mkdir '/usr/local/lib/node_modules/express'
@katopz : No worry! sudo is here to help

$ sudo npm install -g express

2nd trap!

$ cd myExpressApp
$ code .
-bash: code: command not found 
@katopz : That's because you missing this step here tl;dr just open (replace "katopz" with your cool name) /Users/katopz/.bash_profile then add code below, save, reopen your terminal

code () {
    if [[ $# = 0 ]]
        open -a "Visual Studio Code"
        [[ $1 = /* ]] && F="$1" || F="$PWD/${1#./}"
        open -a "Visual Studio Code" --args "$F"
@katopz : Or just forget that! And "open" with Visual Studio Code that you downloaded

$ sudo npm install -g express

3rd trap!

Cannot start OpenDebug because Mono (or a Mono version >= 3.10.0) is required
@katopz : Grhhh Just install mono view beloved brew

$ brew install mono

@katopz : And now you good to go debugging!
// TODO : Better dance emoticon go here ;)
