After checking joplin configuration items, restart VSCode.

Clicking on the sidebar fails to open the note

There may be multiple reasons for this problem

  1. Check if you can open vscode through the switch external editing function in joplin

    1. If it can't be opened, you need to check the text editor command in the settings page, you need to set an editor, or there are invalid settings, refer to: https://github.com/laurent22/joplin/issues/5921#issuecomment-1002692774open in new window
    2. If you still have problems, please go to the official joplin project file an issueopen in new window
  2. Please use version v1.4 or higher, because it contains the necessary action apiopen in new window, for example, open notes based on noteId in VSCode

  3. Make sure to install the Joplin desktop version on the current computer. The plug-in does not support CLI, because it does not include the above action api, refer to: https://discourse.joplinapp.org/t/16735open in new window

  4. Check whether the following command can be executed normally, if it still cannot be opened in the editor, you may want to ask @laurent22

    curl --location --request POST'http://localhost:41184/services/externalEditWatcher?token=***' \
    --header'Content-Type: application/json' \
    --data-raw'{

How to use plugins in two synchronized vscode configurations

By default, joplin on each computer will generate a random token, but you can modify it manually. The general configuration file is ~/.config/joplin-desktop/settings.json, you only need to modify the api. The token is the same token.
