Emmet was better in Sublime Text. In VS Code there are many conflicts with other extensions, so often Emmet directives do not work properly .

I'm curious which you extensions you find Emmet conflicts with?

To be honest, I haven't used Emmet shortcuts that often since learning about them; I haven't written code in HTML files in a while since I mainly work in React.js. But I just Googled how to make Emmet work in React and this article helped me set it up for JSX in minutes! Yay! ✨

I am not exactly sure what causes conflict but I know if configured properly Emmet can do wonders with JSX too. It worked fine few times but then it started messing up. I could not push much time into finding the cause.
