Best Visual Studio Code Extensions

The following are some of our favorite extensions for Visual Studio Code:

  • Beautify or Prettier – Beautify javascript, JSON, CSS, Sass, and HTML in Visual Studio Code.
  • Cordova Tools – Debug on a mobile emulator or a physical mobile device from directly inside of VS Code. The setup for this can be a little tricky.
  • GitLense – Very handy for being able to see Git history without leaving the code.
  • Angular Language Service – dynamic code hints for Angular templates.
  • Angular Snippets – adds snippets for Angular for TypeScript and HTML.
  • Back and Forth – great way to add a back button to your code editor (similar to Xcode), so you can get back to the last file you were looking at.
  • Bracket Pair Colorizier – make your bracket pairs easier to see!
  • Material Icon Theme – style your icons like Material Design.
  • Nx Console – essential for working with Nx monorepo projects.
  • Debugger for Chrome – debug your JavaScript code in the Chrome browser, or any other target that supports the Chrome Debugger protocol.
  • Rest Client – allows you to send HTTP request and view the response in Visual Studio Code directly.
  • Live Server – launch a local development server with live reload feature for static & dynamic pages.
  • Peacock – subtly change the workspace color of your workspace. Ideal when you have multiple VS Code instances and you want to quickly identify which is which.
