If you were to uninstall all secondary extensions in your text editor and leave just Three(3) what will they be?

Introduction :

A code editor simply put is a playground that aids you write your code in a nice, easy and quicker way.

There are several code editors both free and paid out there. They all share some commonalities. One of which is the ability to install additional helpers (extensions) to facilitate your development. In-built or primary extensions comes pre installed with the editor while secondary extensions are installed by users when need be.

In the comments, drop your 3 secondary extensions (extensions you find absolutely necessary) as well as the code editors respectively

I'll start:

  1. Live server --Vscode
  2. Beautify --VScode
  3. ES6/ES7 JavaScript Snippets --Vscode

If I may have another because fzf is divided in two modules.

i guess i could drop the icons extension (vscode), but that will leave me with no secondary extensions.

the other tool i use is vs community. does installing additional features count as secondary extensions? i kinda need my c/c++

Yeah SAAS compiler is powerful especially when you have 2 screens and want to see your results snappy.
