VSCode is one of the best editors right now, a lot of developers use it for various reasons, but we are not here to debate that right now, we are here to talk about extensions!

In case you didn’t know, you can add a lot of extensions to VSCode to support your development workflow, and here are some of my favorite ones.

  1. Better Comments

This extension will help you create more human-friendly comments in your code. It allows you to categorise you comments into alerts, TODOs, queries, and more.
You can configure it as you want, changing fonts, colors…and it supports a lot of languages!

2. Bracket Pair Colorizer 2

The utility of this extension is given by the fact that it colors the brackets, braces and parentheses at the beginning and end of a code block. Which makes reading it very easy.

3. Import Cost

With this extension, we will see the size of an imported 3rd party package the moment we import it, which is great when we are trying to keep our bundle as light as possible.

4. Polacode

Have you ever written a code so beautiful that you wanted to share it? Or maybe you need to capture it to post it somewhere? Well this extension is going to be great for you then. With Polacode you can select the code you want to share and convert it to cool image very easily without having to take a screenshot.

5. Todo Tree

Todo Tree helps you keeping track of TODOs, and that’s great for people (like me) that tends to forget about things like that. It’s gonna definitely help bumping your productivity.

And that’s it! I hope you found some extensions that didn’t know about, and if you have an interesting one, let us know!
