Visual Studio Code is the arguably the best code editor out there at the moment. Market Place offering tons of extensions to customize it exactly to your needs and helping you in writing high quality code. In this article I will recommend my favorite VS Code extensions.

Prettier — Code formatter

Doesn’t matter if you write code alone or in a group, neat code is very important. Prettier is excellent, especially if you are working on the project with other developers. It removes original styling and puts on the consistent code style. Thanks to consistent formatting the code is much more readable.

Bracket pair colorizer

Bracket pair colorizer helps you to find the closing bracket of the current block of code. It often happens that when writing long code after a while you just cant tell where brackets start and where they ends. Bracket pair colorizer comes to your rescue by colorizing each pair of brackets in different color so that they could be easily found.

GitLens
