I usually used `code .` command to open a folder using Visual Studio Code, however it open as new Window.
So, I used folder open dialog to open a folder by current Window. GUI is useful. But I sometime had felt that I don't want to leave terminal window.
I checked a following document. I found -r option and --add option!!
-r option is to open a folder by current window, --add option is to add a folder to current work space.
If I would like to add two folders to Visual Studio Code, the folder names are 'sample1' and 'sample2', and initialize as git repositories.
I just type following command:
$ mkdir sample1
$ cd sample1
$ git init
$ code -r .
$ cd ..
$ mkdir sample2
$ cd sample2
$ git init
$ code --add .
What's a useful feature!!
Thanks for the Tip KazukiOta
Have been thinking if this existed for quite some time. Amazing, thanks for sharing!
Good tip, very helpful.
Is there a way to point Code at the directory of the current buffer w/o closing any buffers?
If I am editing Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1, I'd like to be able to open the containing directory in the sidebar.
That is, navigate to:
in the Terminal pane, and bring that folder in to Code.
If I type
code . -r
It opens the folder in the sidebar, but closes all already-open documents.
