Setting VS Code as Your Default Git Editor

Git provides the flexibility to customize its default editor through the editor field in the configuration. This feature is especially valuable if you prefer the advanced functionalities offered by Visual Studio Code (VS Code). To set VS Code as your default Git editor, you can manually edit the ~/.gitconfig file to include the snippet in this page or, run the following command in your terminal:

git config --global core.editor "code --wait"
  editor = code --wait
