Favourite VSCode Plug-ins

👋 guys,

I know emmett is avail on other Code editors too but it’s one that I like. Other than that I just have one that shows icons based on the file extension and autocomplete.

For those that use VS Code, what are your fav plug ins?

I'm partial to the Emacs keybindings (old habits die hard) and this little crates.io helper that points out outdated version numbers in your Cargo.toml for a Rust project.

Aside from that, I have been thrilled at how well-featured the "defaults" for each language I use are. When I open a file in a language I haven't used in VS code, generally searching the language name and installing the top extension is absolutely everything I need to do. It's almost embarrassing how long I used to spend tweaking configs to get closer to what VS Code does out of the box.

Thanks Ben, I would agree VSC is amazing out of their box.

The IDE is so complete that I barely need any plugins to use it for work (aside from the usual language extension for C# and linters for web development).

Having Emmet by default in the IDE is absolutely amazing! :D

By far it's Quokka. I even paid for the PRO version.

I find "Git History" to be rather useful for quickly reverted to a previous commit

And is basically my only extension aside from 'Go' and something others for themes

will check out Go and Git history, both sound extremely useful
