First, I always needed an IDE that includes a library of raw code samples with comments to start with. Also, I always struggled to run CPP or Scheme Code while I was in school. I have to upload and run the code on a Linux Server in order to run the code and take a screenshots to submit. If there is an extension for each programming language that supports the language with instant code deploy and run in the cloud, this will be phenomena.
How I built it
I updated the current extension by adding a new command that will copy some code samples in the user's workspace folder using the file system library. Then, I installed the compiler on a Linux EC2 Instance. Finally, I used manual code to upload the code to the Linux instance, connect with SSH, then finally compile and run the code.
scp -i ~/path to key.pem ./FileName.cobol userName@your server.com:
Challenges I ran into
The current extension is written in typescript, and it was hard to access the workspace folders object in typescript.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I learned something new and exciting!.
What's next for COBOL Ready
Use API to connect and run the code in the cloud instantly with free trials.
