Liquid Weekly

The newsletter by and for Shopify Developers

Karl Says

I found it!

This weekend I went on a quest to find the fruit of the Pawpaw tree here in Ohio. After several disappointments my kids and I struck gold. And in true Ohio fashion, yes, there is a festival all about it.

I hope you find something delicious in this week's issue.

Tip of the Week

Jump to a specific line in VSCode (and others)

Here's a simple yet helpful tip from Emma Bostian on Twitter to effortlessly jump to a specific line of code while editing in VSCode.
  • CMD + P
  • :XXX (where XXX is the line number)
Many editors support this feature with identical or near identical syntax.
Check the docs and get to jumping!

And if you are using the one true editor, vim, then you know it's just :XXX 😇
