Extensions for VS code

Any recommendations in terms of Extensions for VS Code to work with JavaScript.
There are kinda more than one option and I am relatively new to VS Code.

Correction, there’s basically infinite options!

More seriously though, there’s a few recommended extension:

  • prettier - to format your code
  • gitlens - to view git history within a file
  • code-spell-checker - spell check your code
  • live-server - locally run an http server, great for starting out

None of these are JavaScript specific, as odds are you’ll want to either have nodejs running or a some sort of client-side web page.

I also left out general choices like themes and icon extensions, which are always useful.
