re: Why I Switched From Visual Studio Code To JetBrains WebStorm VIEW POST

re: What have you hacked in it? And I don't mean just installing/configuring plugins for it. It eats a lot of memory for what it does and quite slow to...

Basically using a code injection plugin you can inject your own custom css and javascript to manipulate or change the UI in ways that no plugins or default configs allow for. I'm currently just using it to style things in ways which the current theme tokens don't allow for, but eventually I'd like to explore actually directly manipulating things with javascript. Though at that point I should probably just fork vscode itself or perhaps write a plugin for it. Though I believe plugins are limited to what the extension API allows for and I don't think code injection has that limitation. Not sure.

You can see if you'd like here:

I'm still learning a lot of dev stuff and I'd like to package up the changes I make into their own extension eventually once I have time.
