Extensions are cool but, too many can affect performance and complicate things. As developers, we can use extensions to automate stuff and save time which in turn boosts productivity. In this post, I’ll share some of the extensions I use and had saved me a lot of time to write better code.

What is ESLint?
ESLint is a tool that analyzes your code and helps you fix common syntactical errors that might cause problems later, hence automatically maintain code quality.
We might be working with a variety of dotfiles like (.git) and folders like assets, components, and redux. Sometimes, it is easier to identify files by their icons and this extension makes it possible.
When it comes to themes there are a lot of variants and I use the Material theme. What are your favorite extensions?
