I often use split-screen coding windows in my workflow. Split-screen windows let you compare code. Instead of flipping back and forth between files as well as looking at different sections in the file.
How do I do it? I use split screen all time. As I’m writing code, I’m also writing the tests to validate the code. I have my source code file open on the right and the tests I’m writing open on left. Then I use my other monitor for documentation lookups and a full screen of my command line tool where I’m running the tests.
In this episode, let’s set the keymapping for the Horizontal and Vertical split-screens. Then I’ll show you how you can use these to be more productive.
Hands off the keyboard. Web development starts by thinking first, then planning it out, and then coding it.
