Running Javascript Snippets in VSCode Quokka.js

Scenario

We want to quickly find out what the result of Math.pow(2,5) is.

Approach

Install the VSCode extension Quokka community edition (Click on extensions and search for Quokka):

Once install type CTRL + SHIFT + P or if on a Mac COMMAND + SHIFT + P .

Select Quokka.JS: New File > Typescript . Then type this:

const M = Math.pow(2,5)console.log(M)

And Quokka will tell you what the result is next to the log statement. Here’s a screenshot:

It will also give you real time informative errors in the console.
