At the George James Software booth at Global Summit last year we took the wraps off the work we've been doing to make our popular editing and debugging tool Serenji available on the Visual Studio Code platform.
Rather than requiring you to pull code from your namespaces into local files, then push the changes back to the namespace to run it, you work directly in the namespace. In other words, the editing experience is like Studio rather than like Atelier.
As well as editing code you can also debug it directly from VSCode.
We're now looking for people to test a pre-release. If you already use VSCode (or are willing to start doing so) and you would like access to the pre-release Serenji extension, please email me
privately at the address on my DC profile at email@example.com. Tell me what InterSystems platform(s) and version(s) you're working with, and what platform(s) you run VSCode on. I'd also like to know approximately how many years you have worked with ObjectScript, and whether your ObjectScript codebase consists mainly of classes or MACs or INTs. Plus, please indicate if you're already familiar with VSCode or not.
