VS Code extension: counts blank lines, comment lines, and physical lines of source code in many programming languages.
This extension uses other language extensions to determine the line of code.Therefore, you may need to install the language extension to support a new language.
Conversely, as the number of language extensions increases, the range of support for this feature also increases.
Used in the wonderful extension CodeViz Stat!
CodeViz Stat allows you to see the results of your statistics in beautiful graphs.
- Count the code lines of source code in workspace or directory.
- Count the code lines of the current file in real time.
Count in workspace
Count in any directory
Check available languages
Save language configurations
VSCode Counter is able to aggregate in unknown languages by referring to the information in the installed language extensions. However, I found out that this information is not available in Remote Development.
Therefore, VSCode Counter's ability of collecting VSCode language extensions is now called as an independent function. The idea is to collect the information once in the local environment and store it so that it can be used remotely.
- First, launch VSCode on your local.
- Then, open the command palette and select
VSCodeCounter: Save the collected language configurations.
- Then settings.json will store the configuration information collected from the current language extensions .
- Connect to the remote and use the VSCodecounter as usual.
You can also change the location where your configurations are stored.
However, you must carry the stored information to the remote environment by yourself.
