The most useful VS Code extensions for web developers

How are you, web devs? Is everything all right? I suggest you look at my list of useful extensions for productive development.

1. Auto Rename Tag

Many code editors have their advantages. For example, WebStorm automatically renames paired tags. Unfortunately, VS Code does not have such a feature.

  • Downloads: 4713000+

2. Bracket Pair Colorizer 2

This extension allows matching brackets to be identified with colours. The user can define which characters to match, and which colours to use.

  • Downloads: 2141000+

3. JavaScript (ES6) code snippets

The most useful extension for frontend developers. It has a lot of truly needed snippets. The full list is available on the extension page.

  • Downloads: 4900000+

4. Live Server

Allows you to automatically view changes on the page after saving. You do not need to update the page separately.

  • Downloads: 10041000+

5. Snippet Creator

Quickly create a snippet. While creating, it auto-detects which language you're using.

  • Downloads: 6600+

Here is my own list of extensions that I use. Like and comment and follow my Github <3
