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.
There’s a time to code and …. yup, that sums it up.
