Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the dev tools, part of XML Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Because XML is an open and text based file format, you can use whatever code editor you want for working with the example files in this course. I'm going to be using Visual Studio Code. It's free and it runs on Mac, Windows and Linux. It also has a great ecosystem of third party plugins for working with a variety of technologies including XML. Now you don't have to use VS Code if you don't want to for this course but I'll be using some of the XML tools it provides later in the course. If you decide to use it, you can download and install VS Code from code.visualstudio.com.
Once you have it installed open the editor and then go to the extensions section which is this icon right here. And then in the search box, type XML. The extension you're going to want to install is this one here by Josh Johnson. It adds the ability to work with XPath which we'll be using later in the course. So go ahead and install this extension and then restart VS Code. Once you have the developer tools installed, we can go ahead and proceed with the course.
