Visual Studio Code extensions for developers in 2022:

Visual Studio Code has been identified as the world’s most used code editor due to its lightweight, wide range of extensions, and support from Microsoft. Here, we’ll be talking about the top must-have Visual Studio Code extensions and how they promote efficiency and speed for a web developer.

Auto Close Tag:

The Auto Close tag extension automatically closes any tag. It looks simple but saves a lot of time by reducing the bug of not closing ending tags. This extension works in HTML, XML, React, and other Frameworks.

Auto Rename Tag:

As the name implies, it aids in renaming tags. This saves time when renaming tags in a nested codebase and also helps in preventing future runtime bugs.

Better Comments:

This Better Comments extension gives a colorful comment when used in a code block, attracting developers’ attention. This helps more when working in a team or collaboration.


The CodeSnap extension helps in taking cool code screenshots. This helps a lot when trying to ask questions or answer questions on sites like Stackoverflow and on sites where pasting a code snippet would turn messy.


The ESLint extension serves as a code validator. It runs through your code to check for syntax errors, underlines them, and suggests possible solutions to fix and improve them. The ESLint extension also has many configurations to improve the code integrity, such as rules and styles. Rules: The ESLint rules are sets of instructions observed to ensure code quality. They are customizable to one’s preference and override the style guide rules. ESLint Style Guides: ESLint styles are sets of already made rules that your code will follow, format, and display an error if the rule is broken.

Github Copilot:

The Github Copilot is among the trending VsCode extensions this year. It makes real-time code and function suggestions directly on your code editor using an OpenAI Codex. GitHub Copilot generates coding suggestions in dozens of languages using natural language cues like comments and method names after being trained on billions of lines of public code.

Live Server:

This extension opens your project in your default web browser using a port. It refreshes your page on saving, eliminating the stress of reloading, thus boosting productivity.

Path Intellisense:

The Path Intellisense plugin auto-completes filenames and file paths in our code. This reduces the stress of reciting import paths and file names.


As the name implies, Prettier is a code formatter compatible with many languages. It beautifies the code block with nice indentations, thus making the code more readable.

Visual Studio Code

Thunder Client:

Thunder Client is an alternative to Postman. It’s a lightweight Restful API client for making all types of requests, and this eliminates the stress of going to another application to test an API.
