GraphQL VS Code Extension Review && Simple Schema Build

Today I checked out the GraphQL extension – “VSCode GraphQL” – for Visual Studio Code. It’s available on the Marketplace @ VSCode GraphQL and of course you can navigate to plugging in VS Code and install it just like this.

Development Machine Environment Build & Language Stack Installations – Browsers & IDE’s

In this video I put together some basic IDE’s and browsers I install. In the case of browsers that includes more than a few. For the case of IDE’s it’s my standard arsenal of Jetbrains IDE’s and Visual Studio Code. For the previous step in this series, check out the Base OS Load post.

Additional Notes

Here’s the full list of IDE’s I installed.

IDEs

Browsers

That’s it for now. However, if you’re interested in joining me for next steps, language stack setup, and more in addition to writing some JavaScript, Go, Python, Terraform, and more infrastructure, web dev, and all sorts of coding I stream regularly on Twitch at https://twitch.tv/adronhall, post the VOD’s to YouTube along with entirely new tech and metal content at https://youtube.com/c/ThrashingCode. Feel free to check out a coding session, ask questions, interject, or just come and enjoy the tunes!

For more blogging, I’ve write on https://compositecode.blog and the Thrashing Code Newsletter for more details about open source projects and related efforts I work on, sign up for it here!

Hi, I’m Adron & This is My Gear Setup

I sat down and made a short video of my systems setup and related gear. I’ve always enjoyed seeing other peoples’ setups so figured I’d join the mix and show you all what I work with. Happy to answer any questions too, cheers!

In addition to the video intro I’ve created some additional repositories and related things that I use frequently that may be useful.

Ubuntu Dev Setup Repository: This repo dev-setup-ubuntu has some installation scripts and related collateral that I use to get virtual machines built in an automated way. The focus of this is for setting up development boxes and not for setting up servers.

Video Stream Hacking AKA Twitch & Youtube Live Streaming: This repo is setup with notes and eventually I’ll likely add scripts and related collateral that I use during filming Twitch/Youtube¬†Streams.

Full Gear List: If you’re interested in what makes this possible, at a more detailed level, this is the list to check out.

IDE Launcher via Amtrak Cascades to Portland for ML4ALL

Got fidgety on the train, and just wanted to write code, on the way down to Portland for ML4ALL so I wrote up some decision tree code on determining what IDE’s I want opened up. Ya know, if you do something more than twice it needs automated, so I’ve started the process of automating all startup and shutdown tasks for a day’s coding. Simplistic geeky train geek code fun code is fun geeky train code. Cheers!

WebStorm JavaScripting & Noding Workflow Webinar Recording

Today the JetBrains team wrapping up final processing for my webinar from last week. You can check out the webinar via their JetBrains Youtube Channel:

JavaScriptFor even more information be sure to check out the questions and answers on the JetBrain WebStorm IDE blog entry. Some of the questions include:

  • Q: How to enable Node.js support in PhpStorm (PyCharm, IntelliJ IDEA, RubyMine)?
  • Q:How to enable autocompletion for Express, Mocha and other libraries?
  • Q: Is it possible to debug a Node.js application that runs remotely? Is it possible to debug when your node and the rest of the dependencies (database, etc.) are running in a VM environment like Vagrant?
  • Q: Does the debugger support cluster mode?

…and others all here.
