re: My Visual Studio Code Setup VIEW POST


There are 3 other essentials for me:

  • Bracket Pair Colorizer (never search longer than a few seconds for a missing bracket again)
  • EditorConfig for VS Code
  • Git History + Git Tags (which means that VS Code + console git are my default git client)

Otherwise, nice article and solid setup.


Good list of extensions (and some good additions)— the extension that I've found essential when working with other people is the "Open in Github" extension. It works for any VCS backed website (like gitlab, bitbucket, etc) and makes it really easy to copy/pasta the line number so someone can check out what I'm talking about in the browser.


Ah awesome! I had Bracket Pair Colorizer at one point, and I recommend it to my students, but the colors are a bit off from my themes which annoys me haha.


You can define the colors matching your theme using the bracketPairColorizer.consecutivePairColors configuration. The default is

"bracketPairColorizer.consecutivePairColors": [

which matches very few themes :)
