I use this extension all the time when I am working on any project. Basically this extension allows you to add bookmarks in specific lines in a file. You can also add a note why you have added this bookmark. And you can also explore the bookmarks in the bookmarks tab. Which will show you all the bookmarks in a particular project.

This extension formats your unformatted code. So you don't need to focus on formatting you code. Prettier will do it for you. To start formatting your code with prettier, make sure you add these settings in your
settings.json after installing it. And you will be good to go.
"editor.formatOnSave": true, "editor.defaultFormatter": "esbenp.prettier-vscode",
5. Thunder Client
Are you still using Postman for api testing? Well that's fine. Postman does this duty just perfectly. But for me, when I am working on any project in vs code, I do like to be in vs code. I don't like to open any other external application, it effects on my productivity. So I use this cool Vs code extension. It works same as postman. Nothing new, you can send request to any kind of api from vs code. It really helps me to increase my developer productivity.
These are the productivity vs code extension's, Which I use all the time and wanted to share with you guys. Now I wanted to know what are your productivity extension's? Let me know in the discussions. And make sure you follow me for all the cool article just like that.

Good article with the exception of 'prettier'. Since it supports only languages that I do not use it is more or less worthless. There! A strong opinion about a pretty printer that claims to have strong opinions.
Thanks so much for Thunder Client 🙏 Was indeed still using Postman, but having that integrated in VSCode is so much better!
Thanks for sharing, all these plugins you mentioned are useful.
nice post and there are many extension that use, for example, eslint, git graph, react snippets etc
Thanks for sharing! Very interesting extensions indeed. Especially the bookmark one I believe could be very useful for me.
