Hi broo 👋
In this tutorial, I will share about how to create a zip file of your code directly from Visual Studio Code without an addon. We need a terminal to execute our command line.
For example, we want to zip the mahal folder, so we open the terminal from the themes folder. Right-click on the themes folder and select “Open in Integrated Terminal“.
After your terminal command line is open, you can execute this command
zip -r mahal.zip mahal -x '*.git*'
mahal.zip is the name of the zipped file. You can change with your need.
-r means to zip a directory recursively. This option helps you to zip all the files present in the specified directory.
-x means exclude the files in creating the zip. For example, we exclude the .git folder from zipping.
Good luck 👍
