Outside of ABAP I work almost exclusively in VS Code for all my other projects. It’s such a great tool for development! So when I heard you can now access ADT (ABAP Developer Tools) through it, I was incredibly excited 🙂
Everything you need to know to setup up VS Code is outlined in a fantastic blog post by Leon Hassan and because I enjoy learning from YouTube videos I’ve made a short video myself essentially following those same steps.
In the video we go through how to easily setup up VS Code to work with your own SAP system. In my case I’m using the SAP ABAP Developer Trial version 7.52 SP04. We will be configuring the SAP system as well as installing the 4 required VS Code extensions. Then we’ll configure the frankly awesome ABAP remote file system extension written by Marcello Urbani which should then allow us to access our development objects.
If you run into any technical issues with the ABAP remote file system extension, I recommend you raise it in the extensions GitHub issues page.
Your experience may vary depending on the version of your SAP system so if you do run into any issues please leave a comment and I’ll help where I can.
Here’s the video link 🙂
Thanks for reading!
