I do a lot of development on my local machine, and I came across a nice little macOS service that will open a folder in Visual Studio Code.
If you use Visual Studio Code, I highly recommend this. It's a quick and simple way to get VSCode open on a certain location with little effort. You can download the macOS service from Runar Ovesen Hjerpbakk's Github repository. The instructions to install it are there as well.
Once it's installed you just right click on any folder, go down to Services in the context menu, and select Open in Visual Studio Code. Easy peasy.
