7 VSCode Extensions To 10X Your Productivity
Today, there are a ton of VSCode extensions for just about anything.
But when it comes to Frontend, there are seven extensions I can't live without:
Extension #1: Better Comments
This extension helps you write more human-friendly comments, enabling quick code scanning for essential elements like TODOs and highlights.
Extension #2: Code Spell Checker
Before this extension, I'd often get typo comments on my PRs. That meant going back, making changes, and waiting for CI again. With this extension, those days are history—I now know all my code is typo-free.
Extension #3: File Utils
This extension makes file manipulation (rename, delete, duplicate) a breeze.
Extension #4: GitHub Copilot
Seriously, I can't believe I survived without this extension. It works wonders in speeding up my coding, and I can't get enough of the comments auto-completion.
Extension #5: GitLens — Git supercharged
Git users, if you don't have this extension yet, stop and install it now. It makes everything, from finding the author of a line to checking commit history, much more convenient.
Extension #6: GitHub Pull Requests and Issues
If, like me, you are too lazy to navigate to the pull requests page and create one, download this extension. It lets you effortlessly create PRs directly from VSCode. Plus, you can easily read/edit PR comments directly within VSCode.
Extension #7: Turbo Console Log
I love this extension. It helps you craft meaningful messages, making them easy to spot in a sea of console logs.
