Getting started with ES6 using VS Code and Lite Server

For learning ES6 online editors like jsbin and plnkr are suboptimal. See following example where I want to access the DOM:


I recommend using Visual Studio Code with Lite Server from John Papa.

First you need to install Node.js – see my post Angular with Visual Studio Code – Getting Started.

Then you can install the Lite Server – see following post. You can jump to step 2 since you already installed Node.js: Visual Studio Code and local web server from Laurent Duveau.

That’s it – just type npm start for starting the server!
