Here are my top VSCode extensions that every software developer must have:
Improve your code commenting by annotating with alert, informational, TODOs, and more!
A customizable extension for colorizing matching brackets
Forked from vector-of-bool/vscode-gitflow
Gitflow integration and support in Visual Studio Code
This is the only one with workspace support
Prettier is an opinionated code formatter. It enforces a consistent style by parsing your code and re-printing it with its own rules that take the maximum line length into account, wrapping code when necessary.
Prettify ugly JSON inside VSCode
