4. Prettier

This extension formats your unformatted code. So you don't need to focus on formatting you code. Prettier will do it for you. To start formatting your code with prettier, make sure you add these settings in your settings.json after installing it. And you will be good to go.

"editor.formatOnSave": true,
"editor.defaultFormatter": "esbenp.prettier-vscode",
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

5. Thunder Client

Are you still using Postman for api testing? Well that's fine. Postman does this duty just perfectly. But for me, when I am working on any project in vs code, I do like to be in vs code. I don't like to open any other external application, it effects on my productivity. So I use this cool Vs code extension. It works same as postman. Nothing new, you can send request to any kind of api from vs code. It really helps me to increase my developer productivity.

Good article with the exception of 'prettier'. Since it supports only languages that I do not use it is more or less worthless. There! A strong opinion about a pretty printer that claims to have strong opinions.

Thanks so much for Thunder Client πŸ™ Was indeed still using Postman, but having that integrated in VSCode is so much better!
