Top 14 VSCode Extensions imo!

Hey there!
If you're looking to supercharge your development workflow, you may want to check out my latest YouTube video where I discuss the top 14 Visual Studio Code (VSCode) extensions you need to have in your arsenal.

Here's the video, if you're interested to watch:

Live Server
The first extension on my list is Live Server, which is a must-have for web developers. It allows you to launch a local development server with live reload capability, so you can see your changes in real-time as you edit your code.

Remote SSH
If you need to work on remote machines, then Remote SSH is your friend. It enables you to work on a remote machine as if it were a local one, providing access to all your development tools and VSCode extensions.

Prettier is a code formatter that automatically formats your code to follow consistent style guidelines. It supports a wide range of programming languages, including JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS, HTML, JSON, and more. With Prettier, you no longer have to worry about formatting your code manually, which can save you a lot of time and effort.

GitHub Copilot
A newcomer to the VSCode extension ecosystem, GitHub Copilot is an AI-powered code completion tool that helps you write code faster and more efficiently. It uses machine learning models to suggest code snippets based on your coding context and style.

Auto Rename Tag
Have you ever found yourself renaming an HTML tag, only to forget to update the closing tag? Auto Rename Tag automatically renames both tags for you, saving you time and frustration.

Git Lens
Git Lens is a powerful Git extension that provides detailed information about your code repository right inside VSCode. It offers features such as code blame, commit history, and file comparison, making it easy to collaborate with your team.

CSS Peek
CSS Peek enables you to quickly jump to the definition of a CSS class or ID in your codebase. It also provides a peek view of your CSS code, so you can see the changes in real-time as you edit your code.

Peacock is a VSCode extension that enables you to customize the color of your workspace. It makes it easy to differentiate between different projects and environments, so you can work more efficiently.

Colorize is a simple yet powerful extension that colorizes your code based on the syntax. It makes your code more readable and easier to understand, especially for beginners.

Code Checker
Code Checker is a linting extension that helps you find and fix errors in your code. It supports multiple programming languages and frameworks, including JavaScript, TypeScript, and Python.

Chrome Debugger
If you're working on a web application, you'll need a debugger to help you track down and fix bugs. Chrome Debugger integrates with Google Chrome to provide a seamless debugging experience within VSCode.

Icon Fonts
Icon Fonts is an extension that provides a collection of icon fonts for your projects. It includes popular icon libraries such as Font Awesome and Material Design Icons, making it easy to add icons to your website or application.

VSCode Icons
VSCode Icons replaces the default VSCode icons with a more colorful and visually appealing set of icons. It makes it easier to navigate through your projects and files, especially when you have multiple windows open.

Glassit is an extension that allows you to make your VSCode screen transparent. It's a neat visual effect that can make your coding environment more appealing and fun to work in.

So there you have it, my top 14 VSCode extensions to supercharge your development workflow. Give them a try and see how they can help you work faster and more efficiently. Happy coding!

Nice list. But I don't think we need Remote SSH as vscode with in-built terminal for ssh.
