I’m an Atom fan and have used it on Linux for ages. I probably still will, but our other developers tend to use VS Code because of their use of MS Windows. I thought I’d revisit VS Code and see if I can use it effectively like Atom.
One pleasant surprise was that VS Code has Emmet built right in! The usage is a little different, keyboard shortcuts etc. but it’s native to VS Code so that’s pretty good.
Other Extensions that I’ve added to support the languages I use are:
