vscode tools plugins english

I'm using VSCode as my main code editor for a long time. This is a good open source project done by Microsoft, code based on github. And now it has more than 19K⭐️.

Here I'd like to share my configs and plugin list for this editor.


VSCode supports 2 settings file:

My settings.json file:

// Place your settings in this file to override the default settings
    // Editor

    // The number of spaces a tab is equal to.
    "editor.tabSize": 2,
    // Controls whether the editor should render whitespace characters
    "editor.renderWhitespace": "all",
    // Controls whether the editor should render indent guides
    "editor.renderIndentGuides": true,
    // Workbench

    // Controls if opened editors should show in tabs or not.
    "workbench.editor.showTabs": false,
    // File Explorer

    // Number of editors shown in the Open Editors pane. Set it to 0 to hide the pane.
    "explorer.openEditors.visible": 5,

    // Search

    // Configure glob patterns for excluding files and folders in searches. Inherits all glob patterns from the files.exclude setting.
    "search.exclude": {
        "**/node_modules": true,
        "**/jspm_packages": true,
        "**/bower_components": true

    // Files

    // Controls auto save of dirty files. Accepted values:  "off", "afterDelay", "onFocusChange" (editor loses focus), "onWindowChange" (window loses focus). If set to "afterDelay", you can configure the delay in "files.autoSaveDelay".
    "files.autoSave": "onWindowChange",

    // Emmet

    // When enabled, emmet abbreviations are expanded when pressing TAB.
    "emmet.triggerExpansionOnTab": true,

    // Preferences used to modify behavior of some actions and resolvers of Emmet.
    "emmet.preferences": {},

    // Define profile for specified syntax or use your own profile with specific rules.
    "emmet.syntaxProfiles": {
        "javascript": "html",
        "typescript": "html"

    // An array of languages where emmet abbreviations should not be expanded.
    "emmet.excludeLanguages": [],
    "typescript.check.tscVersion": false
