I want to migrate from Sublime Text to Visual Studio Code, but as a long time ST user, there's a couple of plugins that I'm really missing on VS Code, and I hope that this awesome community can help me find some alternatives — I'm hesitant to invest the time in configuration and learning some new keyboard shortcuts before I know that I can be a productive as I'm used to in ST :)
And hopefully someone will also benefit form this post and the comments, and discover awesome new plugins!
- BracketGuard: Highlights mismatched brackets.
- GitSavvy: A curses-like git client, which runs inside ST. Features, staging, committing, rebasing, branching and more!
- MarkAndMove: Save selections and recall them — save multiple and recall all to create a complex selection.
- MiniPy: Evaluate selected text as Python code, and replace the selected text with the stringified result.
- MoveText: Drag/move text around with the keyboard… useful for swapping lines and such, without having all lines displaced as with a cut-paste operation.
MultiEditUtils: Immensly useful tools for working with multiple selections — includes many functions, listed below and all demonstrated with gifs at the plugin homepage.
- Preserve case while editing selection contents
- Split the selection
- Extend the current selection with the last selection
- Normalize and toggle region ends
- Jump to last region
- Cycle through the regions
- Strip selection
- Remove empty regions
- Quick Find All for multiple selections
- Use selections as fields
- Origami: Easily control the layout of the editor using keyboard shortcuts to move buffers around to create or destroy side-by-side views.
- AlignTab: Advanced alignment, which is also useful for aligning tables in LaTeX.
