re: Setting up a Linux Javascript Dev Environment on Windows VIEW POST


Thanks for the concise guide. I have been using WSL the standard way but wanted to try out the new Windows Terminal and the VSCode remote extension. I believe the main benefits for remoting are faster file operations and being able to edit Linux OS files with VSCode (like .bashrc, etc.), or are there any other key ones that I'm missing?


The above is correct, plus you will be working almost exclusively in a Linux environment. Plus you can navigate both file systems within VSCode and open Windows apps from within the WSL.
