Discussion on: What does your VS Code setup look like?

I have a C++/C# programming background I have experience in Visual Studio. In my opinion, Visual Studio is an overkill option for web development, it is unnecessary heavy for download, then you open the program and you start to see a lot of options that in my opinion doesn't make sense like debugging tools, debugging!? what JS or node JS? Which browser ? Which framework?

The difference is that web development is evolving very fast, all years we have new tools and I don't want to depend on Microsoft to integrate these new innovations. I prefer to trust the community that's why web developers tweak our IDEs/Editors. All this for free.

About the waster of time doing configurations. You can save your configuration once and share it among multiple users.
