Running vscode from terminal using "code" command

Hello, kind of new to manjaro and the whole AUR thing. I recently installed VS code using makepkg and yay and was wondering if and how it would be possible to set things up so I could run VS code using “code” command.
Thank you all for any help in advance.

If you know the name of the executable ─ I do not, because I don’t use that software, sorry ─ then you can create an alias for it in your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc, depending on which interactive shell you use.

Something like this… :arrow_down:

alias code="vscode"

… whereby your replace vscode in the command above by the name of the actual executable.

You’ll have to log out and back in for the changes to take effect, though.

Which package did you install? There are several versions in the AUR. visual-studio-code-bin has the /usr/bin/code excecutable.
