When it comes about theme every people has a different choice. But I personally prefer to use - "The best theme". Yes if you take my opinion this is the best theme. Which gives an elegant look to my VS code. It's pretty similar to one dark pro. But this one is a little bit lighter than one dark pro. Which attracts me so much.
I use Fira Code as the default font of my editor. Which looks pretty fine. It gives a nice look to my editor. And fira code 400 medium is recommended with the Best theme.
For icons I use Material Icon Theme Which makes my icons simple and elegant looking.
Prettier is a really really useful extention. It formats your unformatted code once you save your file. So install it. And after installation, go to settings, and search - "Format on save" Then check the settings if it is marked. Then add some code in your settings.json
This extention saves my time a lot When I am working with React, Html and XML. It renames the closing tag automatically when you try to rename the opening tag.
This extention saves a lot of time when I am working with react and react-native. It helps me to prevent writing all the boilerplate codes. Like when I type - 'rafce' if generates all the codes for a react functional component.

This extention is so useful when you are working with html, css and js projects. It auto reloads the browser page once you save any file in your project.
This extention is so much useful. It highlights the occurance of the opening and closing brackets. And it generates different colors of brackets. Which helps me a lot to have a more better and fast understanding.
