Didact Gives Your Readme Superpowers!

What do you do if Didact tutorials don’t run

Check that the default terminal location is set to view to avoid an issue with tutorials appearing in editor views:

  1. Go to the Settings (File->Preferences->Settings)
  2. Navigate to Features->Terminal.
  3. Check the setting for Integrated: Default Location. It should be set to view.

What do you do if the registered tutorials no longer work after updating to 0.4.0

Check the version of the Didact extension by looking at the Extensions Activity and checking the Installed extensions. Look for Didact and verify that version 0.4.0 is installed.

  1. Go to the Settings (File->Preferences->Settings) and go to Extensions->Didact.
  2. Make sure that Didact: Auto Add Default Tutorials is checked.
  3. Open the Command Palette (Ctrl+Shift+P) and type Didact Clear to select the Didact: Clear Tutorial Registry command. Say “yes” when prompted.
  4. Restart the workspace.

What do you do if Didact fails to load or fails to load your tutorial?

Biggest Clue? Check the Output channels

  1. Look at the Didact Activity Output channel for any clues as to why a particular Didact link has failed to work. We try to log some diagnostic information in the Didact channel.
  2. Look at the Log (Extension Host) Output channel for any clues as to why the Didact extension has failed to load.
