How to download and setup VSCode for Stormworks.
Allows you to write better Microcontrollers, far more easily, with a full debugger and error checking.
Why Use VSCode
Stormworks Lua is an extension to provide proper build processes to the Stormworks community.
Do you hate trying to figure out why a certain value is wrong in a calculation?
Do you hate writing all your code in one big, disorganised file?
Do you hate the 4000 character limit?
Do you wish you could make well-structured code libraries, and use that code on multiple projects without copy/pasting?
The extension solves these by providing:
An extremely powerful Minimizer, that can remove redudant code and shrink files massively
A Combiner, that can trace the “require(…)” keyword so you can write code across multiple files
A full Debugger that can show you the memory values of your Microcontroller
A Simulator that support multiple screens simultaneously
Full type hinting and error checking to avoid typos
A solid library of code, the LifeBoatAPI, to simplify writing Stormworks code.
