If you are interested in using Visual Studio Code, and you have your code on GitHub (read more about that here), you may be interested to know that you can set up VS Code to clone your code, and then commit, push and pull changes! This is really nice because you can do all those things from within VS Code, while writing your mod. No need to use other software.

Here's a thorough guide for how to set this up: from initial installation of Git, to cloning a repository, to committing and pushing changes, and beyond.
