  • Install Prettier & Git Lens
  • Use an icon set to identify file types more easily
  • Use individual workspaces per project to save your current state when switching context
  • Hide node_modules folder from sidebar
  • Learn keyboard shortcuts, many of them!
  • Install Sync Settings extension
  • Move sidebar to the right, it helps distracting you less when you toggle it because your editors will move less or none at all
  • Enable autosave on focus change (I only wish I could do a combination of focus change and delay)
  • Enable Emmet for JSX

    • Go to settings, search for Emmet, click on Include Languages -> Edit in settings.json and add the following markup:
    • "emmet.includeLanguages": { "javascript": "javascriptreact" }
