"Code" is indeed an editor, and a rather nice fancy one, but it probably doesn't come with your operating system.

You can download it and then install it (for free) from here :point_right: Visual Studio Code.

Weird... I've already got VS Code downloaded and installed on my mac, but 'code .' still doesn't work, returns the same error as above... oddly, it returns this error if I also try 'sub lime .'
