My VSCode Setup

Since there are posts like this going around on blogs like The Zen of Programming (opens in a new tab) and DEV Community 👩‍💻👨‍💻 (opens in a new tab) so I feel like giving my 🔥 take.

VSCode: Themes

My current theme is Gloom (opens in a new tab) because it's pretty and has the best balance of contrast and coolness.

I also have the standard Monokai, Cobalt2 (opens in a new tab), nightowl (opens in a new tab), and level-up-vscode-theme (opens in a new tab) which is my second favorite.


I have a lot of extensions. Let's just get that out of the way. I know I should delete a lot of them and I have. Just need to go a little further.1:

Final Thoughts

VSCode has come a long way from when I first tried it in 2015. I use it exclusively now, and am extremely happy with it and happy with my overall setup2.


  1. I just installed 6 more while writing this.

  2. Though I could get rid of some of these extensions.
