Top VS Code Extensions, you must have 🤩
Better Comments - The Better Comments extension will help you create more human-friendly comments in your code. If you're the one who loves watching different colored comments, then check it out.
Bracket Pair Colorizer - This extension allows matching brackets to be identified with colors. The user can define which characters to match, and which colors to use.
ESLint - ESLint is a fantastic linter that picks up syntax errors for you to spot problems with your code before you run your code.
file-icons - It provides unique file icons to quickly identify file type in the IDE.
GitLens — Git supercharged - GitLens supercharges the Git capabilities built into Visual Studio Code. It helps you to visualize code authorship at a glance via Git blame annotations and code lens, seamlessly navigate and explore Git repositories, gain valuable insights via powerful comparison commands, and so much more.
Import Cost - This extension will display inline in the editor the size of the imported package. The extension utilizes webpack with babili-webpack-plugin in order to detect the imported size.
indent-rainbow - This extension colorizes the indentation in front of your text alternating four different colors on each step.
Live Server - Launch a local development server with live reload feature for static & dynamic pages.
Path Autocomplete - Provides path completion for visual studio code. I personally found this extension really helpful.
Prettier - Prettier is an opinionated code formatter. It enforces a consistent style by parsing your code and re-printing it with its own rules that take the maximum line length into account, wrapping code when necessary.
VS Code Theme I use 💜
Night Owl by Sarah Drasner - A VS Code theme for the night owls out there. Now introducing Light Owl theme for daytime usage. Decisions were based on meaningful contrast for reading comprehension and for optimal razzle-dazzle. ✨
