VS Code Extensions I use Daily
Bracket Pair Colorizer 2
As you can see in the GIF it auto-completes requires an import statement that targets NPM packages. This helps out quite a lot especially if your projects get quite big and packs a lot of dependencies in your package.json. I don't want to miss this plugin anymore, highly recommended!
This is a sibling of NPM Intellisense. It does the same auto-completion but now for your filesystem. The maintainer is the same and as with his sibling, I don't want to miss this anymore!
Since I am working with NodeJS a lot of the time I got used to set up my development environment entirely with Docker. Before I found this extension I worked with the CLI exclusively. This extension is a must-have for handling multiple Docker images and containers because it gives you a quick overview of which containers are running, which images are built, and which networks are created. If you use Docker on a daily basis I can only emphasize using this extension.
Auto Close Tag and Auto Rename Tag
These are two small plugins for your VS Code that helps you maintain your HTML files by auto renaming and closing your tags. This also works in React's very own JSX syntax. Give it a try if you want to save you some time.
Markdown Preview Enhanced
I use Markdown for a lot of things. For example, writing articles on hashnode.com or dev.to, writing documentation for my private projects, or organizing myself by writing notes down in markdown. Most of the time I do that using VS Code and I was lacking a good markdown preview tool until I found Markdown preview Enhanced. It does not only provide you with a preview, but it also features synchronized scrolling, PDF export, and PlantUML. I really like this tool and can highly recommend it to everyone that works regularly with Markdown.
These are my most used extensions for VS Code that I use on a daily basis. I hope you found something new and useful for your workflow. Let me know what extensions you use.
