5 cool vs code extensions for web developers

Hi all, today is this blog I am going to show 5 vs code extensions which I use that boosts my productivity.

1. Inline Fold

If you have been using Tailwind css(which you definitely should) then you might want to hide the styles you have applied once you are done with the styling. Using this extension the classNames collapses to three dots and help us focus more on the code.

2. Tailwind CSS IntelliSense

The second extension is also on Tailwind CSS 😛 . As it is clear from the name, this extension provides auto-complete suggestions for Tailwind CSS. I can't emphasis how slick it makes writing CSS. See below for yourself.

Peacock gives different colors to different instances of Vs code. This helps in quick identification of which project we are currently working on



4. Rainbow Brackets

Rainbow Brackets gives different colors of nested brackets in Vs code, by which you can distinguish easily closing and opening of the brackets it can be parenthesis, square bracket, curly bracket .

Hello Shailesh,

Just to say: you could use a native option in VSCode to colorize brackets:

"editor.bracketPairColorization.enabled": true
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

(and fix your links: they are generating 404 en
