Visual Studio Code is a go to application for coder's because of its rich theme and extension base. It's open source edition VScodium is also very popular among developers.
If you have a network issue or CORS header error or simply you just want to install an extension offline then this guide is for you.
Open VSX Registry: A Vendor Neutral, Open Source Marketplace for VS Code Extensions. Where you can browse and download extensions.
For demonstration purpose I will install an extension called Prettier - Code formatter
Lets search and open Prettier - Code formatter from https://open-vsx.org/
On the bottom right you'll find a Download button to download the extension file.
After download open terminal and change the directory where you saved the extension file. By default it will be in Downloads folder.
You can verify the file there or not through
If the file on that directory then simply run this command. You have to replace
<filename> with the filename of the extension that you've downloaded.
code --install-extension <filename>.vsix
If the extension install successfully, you'll get output like this.
