Deno installation and VScode setup

Deno is a run time of JavaScript and TypeScript. It's created by the same person who created NodeJS -- Ryan Dahl.
Recently They have published the stable version of Deno 1.0.0

We also created a Facebook group for Developers:
Deno Developers Bangladesh

Deno Installation

macOS and Linux:
curl -fsSL | sh
Using Homebrew: brew install deno

iwr -useb | iex

Now Try to run deno --version in your terminal, if don't works then you might need to add the path on your OS.

Visual Studio Code Setup

  1. Create a project directory, Let's say hello-deno is the name of the directory/folder.
  2. Now create a index.ts file and .vscode directory, in the root directory.
  3. Install the Deno extension for vscode. Which is created by axetroy.
  4. Create a settings.json in .vscode directory.
  5. add { "deno.enable": true, } in settings.json file.
  6. console.log("Hello Universe...") in the index.ts file.
  7. On your terminal go to the project directory and run deno run index.ts

Note: Deno can compile both JavaScript and TypeScript. So, your file extension also can be .js

These instructions are for the deprecated Deno extension from axetroy, not for the official VSCode extension from denoland.
