Environment Setup for Javascript

In order to create a project I have had to setup my development environment. I used the following tools:

  1. Browser
  2. Editor

I could use any browser but I choose working with Google Chrome due to Chrome DevTools. To access them:

  • open a Chrome page
  • open the View menu at the top of your browser window
  • select Developer
  • and then select Developer Tools

As my editor I have chosen Visual Studio Code and jsfiddle.net to keep some snippets I was interested on.

Visual Studio Code is a cross-platform editor, that means you can use it with Windows, Linux and macOS. It helps you with debugging, with Git control and you can install plugins.

Visual Studio vs Visual Studio Code

The main difference is that VS Code is an Editor while VS is an IDE.  Check these two posts for more information:
