I want to share some useful, interesting extensions that I collected from everywhere. Share your opinion if there will be extensions that are new for you or you think it's not good to use that and there are some better ones. I am gonna leave here all of what I use as a junior software engineer. Let's begin.


  1. Bracket Pair Colorizer 2(DEPRECATED — it has become a native feature in VSCode.)

This extension allows matching brackets to be identified with colors. The user can define which tokens to match, and which colors to use.

2. Auto Rename Tag

Automatically rename paired HTML/XML tags.

3. Code Spell Checker

The goal of this spell checker is to help catch common spelling errors while keeping the number of false positives low.

This extension will definitely help you when you write fast and want to get your job done, sometimes we misspell words, and to not search for that issues to have clean code, use it.

4. Git History

Git History, Search, and More (including git log)
