Meet Status() - An Extension for VS Code

The Extension

I introduce to you, Status(). An extension that displays HTTP status codes without leaving your favorite editor.

The Idea

The idea came to me when I was working on a back-end server, and I found myself going back and forth between vscode and an HTTP response code cheat sheet. After searching the vscode extension marketplace, I knew I was onto something great.

The first thing to do was to learn how to create an extension for vscode. I found it a bit difficult to comprehend (still is tbh). After watching a course on Pluralsight (thanks to the #FreeApril), I was, for the most part, ready to get started.


At first, I didn't know where to start, but after writing the first few lines of code, I knew where I was going. Two hours later, I had a fully functional extension. All that I need to do was add the necessary information to the PACKAGE.json and publish it to the VSCODE marketplace.

The Future

I have several ideas I want to implement into the extension, so stay tuned!
