VSCode + ElixirLS = 👍👍

I’ve played around with VSCode here and there, but as a fairly picky Vim user who doesn’t do TypeScript, I never quite understood the hype.

Today I started up a new Elixir / Phoenix project (more on that to come) and tried out the Elixir Language Server Extension and the integration is very impression. Code completion, debugger support, automatic inference of Dialyzer Typespecs, documentation on hover, and more….

I don’t expect to be using VSCode as my standard editor (again, picky Vim user1), but I think I’ll stick with it on Elixir projects.

  1. The vim-mode extension has improved dramatically, but still not quite like the real thing
