TIL: Open Visual Studio Code from command line

Quick tip to make work a bit simpler: Visual Studio Code can be executed from the command line by running the “code” command.

It is especially useful when running like this: “code .” as it opens the VS Code with the current folder. This allows to quickly open a project in VS Code from the command line interface.

Alternatively just running “code” opens an empty instance of the editor, and running “code file_name” opens VS Code with the specified file opened in it.
