WSL2 launch VSCODE (quick tip)
If you are using WSL2 and want to launch the vscode from your Windows bin from WSL linux terminal, you can use this simple gist:
#!/usr/bin/env bash # vscode launch windows username="Your Windows User Name" bin_path="/mnt/c/Users/$username/AppData/Local/Programs/Microsoft\ VS\ Code/bin/code" if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then eval "$bin_path -add $(pwd)" else eval "$bin_path -add $1" fi
If you don't want to hard-code your username:
username=$(/mnt/c/Windows/System32/cmd.exe /c 'echo %username%' |& tail -1)
And now you can user the command code to open the folder or code filename to open file, as the vscode CLI.
Be also sure to have Remote-WSl extension installed.
Now save at /usr/local/bin/ or anywhere in your PATH for global access.
