New Useful Setting from VS Code
/ VS Code has been the most popular VS Code 1.79.0 has a lot of updates, and let us look at some new things that I believe are going to be useful.
Visual Studio Code is a lightweight but powerful source code editor which runs on your desktop and is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
So, what is the new update from this version that I think is very useful in Version 1.79.0?
In this version, they added a way to be able to mark files as read-only. With this, it will lock files to avoid modifying the file.
To be able to access this here are some ways. You can edit it from the setting for universal use, something like this.
If you want to set settings as global settings, you can set it in the
User Tab, but if just want to set the setting only for the workplace, set the setting in the
Here are setting you can modify for read-only files:
files.readonlyInclude- Paths or glob patterns to make a file read-only if matching.
files.readonlyExclude- Paths or glob patterns to skip files from being read-only when they match
files.readonlyFromPermissions- Whether a file that has no write-permissions on disk should be read-only.
Once you set up
files on the
files.readonlyInclude it will lock the file and will not let you edit that file.
This is really useful to avoid editing your protected files.
So, that's it! I hope you learn something! Adios! 🙌
