VS Code Run configurations

In VS Code, I see how to setup a run configuration in the launch.json for debugging. Something like

            "type": "julia",
            "request": "launch",
            "name": "Run active Julia file",
            "program": "${file}",
            "stopOnEntry": false,
            "cwd": "${workspaceFolder}",
            "juliaEnv": "${command:activeJuliaEnvironment}"

Is it possible to set up a launch configuration to just run a julia script (not in debugging mode)?


Ctrl+F5 should run that launch config without the debugger.

Thank you @davidanthoff, worked for me!

That works for running, currently active script. however, can we create a run config that will run a specific script (non-active) like

            "type": "julia",
            "request": "launch",
            "name": "Launch example 2",
            "program": "${workspaceFolder}/examples/example2.jl",
            "stopOnEntry": false

in non-debug mode? Can we click on the run config dropdown, select the run config and hit go without having to navigate to that file in the browser first (in non-debug mode)?

edit: nevermind! I see that Ctrl+F5 runs the selected run config in normal mode, which includes the “specific-file” version above. Cool!
