VS Code Extensions

I believe that the tools and tooling that you use does play a role in making you a more efficient programmer, and a couple of mostly quality-of-life extensions that I use with VS Code are:

  • Error Lens highlight the entire line wherever a diagnostic is generated and print the message inline.
  • GitLens Find out who to blame quicker—spoiler, it's you.
  • Todo Tree search your workspace for comment tags like TODO and FIXME, and display them in a tree view. 🌳
  • Karma Duh.
