I've been using VS Code for the past 4 years and over these years I came across many these extensions that I would like to share with you. I'm so addicted to these extensions that my developer life would be incomplete without them.
Here is a list of my VS Code extensions:
I've a habit of changing themes quite often and this is the current theme that I'm using these days. Colors are not very light and are easy on eyes both during day and night.
Automatically rename paired HTML/XML tag, same as Visual Studio IDE does.
Visual Studio Code plugin that autocompletes filenames. Very helpful in React projects when importing components from different folders.
Advanced autocompletion and refactoring support for SCSS. Must have for front-end developers that use Sass.
Generate and insert placeholder images into your HTML. Easy to find placeholders images directly in the VS Code.
Launch a development local Server with live reload feature for static & dynamic pages.
Code formatter using prettier.
Code snippets for Reactjs development in ES6 syntax.
Must have extension in my opinion, it synchronize all your VS Code Settings, Snippets, Themes, File Icons, Launch, Keybindings, Workspaces and Extensions Across Multiple Machines Using GitHub Gist.
Very helpful in case you change your development machine and want to import all your previous VS Code data.
Improve your code commenting by annotating with alert, informational, TODOs, and more!
A customizable extension for colorizing matching brackets.
If you are like me who can write a single word without mistake this extension is a must have. Checks your code for spell errors and provide suggestions.
Display import/require package size in the editor.
Another must have extension. TabNine is a all-language autocompleter — which uses machine learning to help you write code faster.
This is a Dark Magic extension, after installing and using it for sometime it gives very accurate suggestions which leave you awestruck.
Syntax highlighting and IntelliSense for styled-components.
📂 Finder toolbar app to open current folder in Visual Studio Code
I'll keep updating this list with new extensions that I find. Feel free to suggest the extensions that I might have missing. I would love to know what new extensions developers are using.
I've also created a git repo with the VS Code extensions and settings that I frequently use. Find the repo here
