Hey everyone, here's another VS Code extensions post that'll help you boost your productivity and fast-track your workflow.
If you like to work in teams they have a pro version that is trained using advanced AI models. Tabnine is trained while you’re on the team project and even a small interaction with it will improve it’s AI accuracy improving team productivity.
Better comments is an extension that can help you create “Human friendly” comments in your code. It is an example of how a small idea can help you increase your productivity and improve the quality of your work. Using this extension you can categorize your annotations into queries, alerts, Highlights and To do’s. This extension also gives you an option for comment style other than default comment style that can be selected through settings. Personally, It helps me spot important To Do's that might get skipped from my agenda.
blox is another extension that can help you improve your productivity as it lets you drop code snippets with a single click. It’s aimed at fast tracking the developer workflow through the ease of adding pre-built UI components without leaving your VS code window. blox is supported by React, Angular, Vue and TailwindCSS.
Stepsize helps you bookmark your code, report technical debt and code to refactor. If you find an issue while coding that needs to be fixed but you don’t have enough time to do it, In that case you can bookmark code and create TODOs straight in your IDE without compromising on your work or affecting your workflow. Stepsize also allows you to collaborate with your teammates on maintenance and refactoring work.
Hope y'all enjoy using these extensions!

Tabnine? We use Copilot nowadays
I use tabnine, for me it's a lot better than copilot. Copilot is highly opinionated, whereas Tabnine learns from your style (don't know if copilot does that too though). But In my experience, Tabnine is more usefull for me than copilot.
Thanks for your feedback, Keff! We're glad Tabnine helps you code more effectively 💙
Tabnine is more about a writing assistance, like a super intellisence where copilot will give you an IA advice for filling the lines.
If I am not wrong also, tabnine can be ued 100% offline when copilot is 100% online. Without a reliable internet connection, copilot is not fast to use
I've see and read about github copilot, really impressive but seems has some big inconvenients about the quality of suggested code, not the best in class. It depends on the IA and which repos were used for the learning of the IA (in short garbage in, garbage out).
Not experimented by myself, just read some articles...
I use both for best results. Tabnine completes the current line, and Copilot generates the next few lines from that first one. Maximum autocomplete.
What made you guys switch?
Should really checkout Dendron, too, for Personal Knowledge Management (PKM), docs, or "second brain." Really great for notes or documentation, in general, and for daily/weekly/etc. journaling from a VSCode/VSCodium extension.
Thanks for the suggestion, will definitely check it out!
Thanks for the tip, sounds like a great app!
User of tabnine since the begin, excellent.
Sonarlint is very useful too.
tabnine is heavy on cpu / gpu usage or whatever. I tried it but it was slowing my computer down. Well not literally but it seemed to use a lot of resources so I decided to stop using it.
For a beginner like me, Sonarlint is extremely helpful
Even a senior developer
Well the articles was good, but here I have mentioned some VScode shortcuts and some best Vscode ectension which you haven't mentioned and will help everyone to boost their production.
I personally use them and they are quite useful.
I insist to atleast check it once.Thank You.
Thank you for this useful article, Haris. We are happy to be on your list!
Awesome extension guys! Appreciate the efforts you guys are doing for the dev community. Keep it up!
Really unhappy with tabnine, I would love to use it, mostly it's helpful, but in typescript it just ignores the types and often predicts properties and things that don't even exist. And then I have to think "hey, does this property even exist?". Just annoying
Awesome extensions dude! btw, sonarLint helps me a lot
Tabnine is awesome but limited in free use, while Copilot is much more comprehensive and free (that is of you got the invite)
I liked the Tabnine extension the most I will surely add it .
Thanks for the suggestion
Great and Helpful post again !
Keep it up !
Thanks! Really appreciate it
Whoa, great stuff here. Thank you
Tried both Copilot and TabNine. I think a few more years we won't even need for web developer anymore
Copilot >>>>> Tabnine
I'm definitely going to try some of these out! Thanks for the list!!
