Running Julia in Terminal vs. VsCode


I run Julia on MacBook Air (M2, 2022) and am wondering if there is any difference between running Julia codes in VSCode versus from the Terminal.

Thanks you.

It is possible that running from VSCode is set to run multi-threaded, which can correspond to julia -t auto in the terminal.

Also, the VS code REPL will plot into the integrated plot navigator, as opposed to plots showing up in a different window. If you are editing source code you can send this directly to REPL with Ctrl+Enter or the inbuilt buttons. There are some more features which helps your workflow too (debugging support is much better).

Most of the benefits are workflow related performance, will probably be the same between a normal REPL and the VS code one.
