πŸ’» 5 Useful VS Code extensions to help you with Javascript, React and Git

This is a list of 5 extensions and themes for VS Code that I often use and find useful.

  1. ES7 React/Redux/GraphQL/React-Native snippets βœ‚οΈ
    This extension gives use a great number of code snippets to create components or imports faster. The first I do after create a new React component file is to use this extension, which autocomplete the initial part of a new component by just typing rafc + enter 🀯
    πŸ‘‰ Here the list of snippets

  2. Code Spell Checker πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§
    This is a grammar checker for VS Code, I lost the count of how many times this extension saved me from typos. When you misspell an English word as variable or string, the extension will print a blue underline, and you can fix it with right click and see if in the suggested words there is the one needed

  3. vscode-styled-components 🌈
    I use a lot styled-component and thanks to this extension CSS remains colored has normal otherwise it will be considered as a string, and it would be just green text

  4. CodeSandbox Theme 🎨

  5. Git Graph 🌳
    Git Graph gives you a really nice view of your branches
    also, can perform Git Actions, View commit details and file changes, compare any two commits by clicking on a commit, Code Review, etc...

If you are using typescript, you can add β€˜ts’ prefix to shortcuts like β€˜tsrafce’ for creating component at new file.
