For a long time I was an Atom fan.  Still am.  However, I have recently switched and stayed with VS Code.

I don’t need many extensions out of the box, but here are the few I use:

  • Contextual Display
  • Document This
  • htmltagwrap
  •  Auto Close Tag and Auto Rename Tag
  • Spell Right
  • WordPress Snippet
  • ESLint
  • Prettier (for non WP work)
  • Quokka.js (sometimes)

Here are the settings I usually use:

{
    "window.zoomLevel": 0,
    "editor.fontSize": 15,
    "editor.tabSize": 2, 
    "editor.detectIndentation": false,
    "editor.insertSpaces": true,
    "editor.minimap.enabled": false,
    "editor.fontFamily": "'Dank Mono', monospace",
    "editor.wordWrap": "on",
    "terminal.integrated.shell.osx": "/bin/zsh",
    "terminal.integrated.fontSize": 18,
    "terminal.integrated.fontFamily": "'Dank Mono', monospace",
    "workbench.colorTheme": "Github Plus",
    "terminal.external.osxExec": "Hyper.app",
    "git.enableSmartCommit": true,
    "workbench.startupEditor": "newUntitledFile",    
}
The color scheme I use is Github Plus and the custom font I use is Dank Mono and I’m a big fan 🙂
