Hello Coders!

I'm looking into VSCode and wanted to see what extensions I should install. Any suggestions? What extensions do you use with VSCode? No wrong answers.

Currently I am using only two: Live Server & Remote - WSL.
Live Server to instantly deploy a simple HTTP server with a single click from VSCode.
Remote WSL is for connecting to and accessing WSL file system.

I am actually looking to try Live Server, any advice for setup or just install?

Its pretty easy. Once you install it, you'll see an option in VS code status bar to deploy the opened folder to a live HTTP server.
You can switch it on/off right from the status bar.
This extension will auto-reload your page in browser when you change and save any file.

Okay, I'll give it a try right now. Thanks @joe!

I use the Micrososoft Python extension and The Material Icon theme which adds icons to all file types.

May I ask why you use these extensions?
I use the Python extension to code in Python and the Material Icon theme because VSCode doesn't come with icons for the file types pre-installed. I also activated a setting called ' Cursor Smooth Caret Animation ' under Settings > Text Editor > Cursor. This makes the cursor animations smoother. Oh and I changed the font type to 'Bahnschrift'
