A Finder toolbar icon to open current selected file/folder with VS Code.

How to use?

How to create the app manually?

Open AppleScript Editor, copy the following source and export as Application.

 Open in VS Code
 To use:
  * Drag Open In VS Code to the toolbar of any finder
  window to add it to the toolbar

on run tell application "Finder" if selection is {} then set finderSelection to folder of the front window as string else set finderSelection to selection as alias list end if end tell


end run

-- script was drag-and-dropped onto on open (theList) subl(theList) end open

-- open in Visual Studio Code on subl(listOfAliases) tell application "Visual Studio Code" activate open listOfAliases end tell end subl

Looking the same thing for Sublime?
