viatsko/awesome-vscode: 🎨 A curated list of delightful VS Code packages and resources.

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/05

[Wayback/Archive.is] viatsko/awesome-vscode: 🎨 A curated list of delightful VS Code packages and resources.

It is a long and very readable categorised list of Visual Studio extensions and resourced often with small screencasts or screenshots.

The README in the repository is easier to read than the official site a [Wayback/Archive.is] awesome-vscode | 🎨 A curated list of delightful VS Code packages and resources. (as somehow there not all markdown rendered nicely).

Many other awesome lists can be found via [Wayback/Archive.is] sindresorhus/awesome: 😎 Awesome lists about all kinds of interesting topics.

HTML / XML / RSS link checker – Visual Studio Marketplace

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/04

On my list of Visual Studio Code extensions to try (after I change the shortcuts, as direct Alt shortcuts are not a good idea, luckily those are configurable)

[Wayback/Archive.is] HTML / XML / RSS link checker – Visual Studio Marketplace (partly paraphrased):

VSCode extension that checks for broken links in an HTML, XML, RSS, PHP, or Markdown file.

Checks currently open file:

  • for broken links in anchor-href, link-href, img-src, and script-src tags in currently-open HTML or PHP file
  • both clearnet and onion (Tor) links
  • for badly-formatted mailto links, and duplicate local anchors (anchor-name, anchor-id)
  • for working HTTPS equivalents of HTTP links

Optionally checks for invalid characters and common mistakes (missing tag content, empty attribute value, more).

Also checks for errors in a small subset of semantic HTML tags (in HTML and PHP files): checks that each page has header, main, footer; checks that each heading is inside a section, article, or aside; checks that each section/article/aside has exactly one heading in it; checks that heading values are nested properly.

To see/change settings for this extension, open Settings (Ctrl+,) / Extensions / “HTML / XML / RSS link checker”.

To change the key-combinations for this extension, open File / Preferences / Keyboard Shortcuts and search for Alt+H or Alt+T or Alt+M or Alt+L.

On my list of extensions to try in vscode: tab nine

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/03

I wrote about Visual Studio Code: blazingly fast text expansion with Emmet in september.

Another productivity extension that is on my list is [Wayback/Archive.is] Tabnine – Code Faster with the All-Language AI Assistant for Code Completion, autocomplete JavaScript, Python, TypeScript, PHP, Go, Java, node.js, Ruby, C/C++, HTML/CSS, C#, Rust, SQL, Bash, Kotlin, R – Visual Studio Marketplace.

The first thing I thought of when reading this is “oh, wasn’t this the GitHub open source AI code completion plugin controverse in mid 2021?”. It wasn’t. See links below.

Select matching element/rename HTML tag in Visual Studio Code – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/21

I totally missed that in 2019, the F2 key was enabled to rename HTML tags, but it does: [Wayback/Archive.is] Select matching element/rename HTML tag in Visual Studio Code – Stack Overflow:

HTML rename tags
You can now use F2 to rename the opening/closing tag pairs in HTML.
F2 when the cursor is over one of the tags and you will get a little input box with the cursor to input the new tag name and the start/end tags will be replaced with whatever you type upon .
demo of HTML rename tags

[Wayback/Archive.is] Another answer indicates that even more recently, Linked Editing can do the same without even pressing F2. Too bad it is not enabled by default:

No need for extension, this is now cooked into VSCode.
"editor.linkedEditing": true

Visual Studio Code: blazingly fast text expansion with Emmet

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/15

I come from a background of Delphi, Visual Studio and Notepad++ editors that historically have expanded their functionality over decades of releases.

When switching much of my development to Visual Studio Code, which out of the box aims at basic support (which has grown remarkably over the years so it’s way beyond basic now), I decided to review my editing behaviours see if plugins (in vscode speak “extensions marketplace“) would assist me with that.

One of my behaviours I wanted to get rid of is heavily use of keyboard macros, so when doing more web-stuff, I bumped into Emmet (that in the past was called Zen Code).

I bumped into Emmet because I wanted to refactor quite a few bits of html, and embed many sections of text in tags. Normally I would have written a macro for that, but now I did a quick [Wayback/Archive.is] vscode html embed text in element – Google Search and bumped into [Wayback/Archive.is] html – How to do tag wrapping in VS code? – Stack Overflow (thanks [Wayback/Archive.is] Alex!)

Since Visual Studio Code has built-in support for Emmet, here are some links so I can quickly find them back:

Hopefully I will now also less rely on user-defined snippets, though they are still available: [Wayback/Archive.is] Snippets in Visual Studio Code

Using Emmet eventually might help me in my blog-writing too, which still is heavily WordPress.com, known for its limited editor, based.

Apparently, my Google Search fu still is good enough to find these kinds of gems (:
