Markdown Tips in VSCode

Interlinking Markdown Documents

Anchors from headings are automaticaly created. Just type ###### Some subhead
In the same file, we can link with just [go to](#some-subhead). Notice that we lowercased and replaces spaces with dashes.

To link to other files, easiest way is to drag-drop file and hold Shift key. That will produce something [like this]( We can also link to line numbers like [file](file#L60)

Link to folder [like this](Folder) possible also and it would open folder in Explorer bar, something like “Reveal In SideBar” but for folders.

Also try Find File References option on mouse right-click that will find us any mention of that file. Amazing!

Remote editing

This is common Visual Studio Code problem for Remote SSH editing.

Warning: inotify watchers?

This is a part of inotify filesystem options. A sensible setting is typically 100000 or more on a development machine and Ubuntu’s default of 8K is way too little.

Retrieve the current amount:

sysctl fs.inotify
# or: cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches

Retrieve a number of opened files for the user:

lsof | grep inotify | wc -l

We can increase the values like this

sysctl -n -w fs.inotify.max_user_watches=1048576
sysctl -n -w fs.inotify.max_user_instances=512

But to make it permanent, it must being added to /etc/sysctl.conf:

echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=1048576 | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf && sudo sysctl -p
