Recently, I was at the Boryspil Airport, Ukraine, working on a blog article when suddenly my VSCode stops working. It actually got crashed! Not once, but twice under 30 minutes. Some of the content was autosaved, some of it was gone forever…
I was frustrated at first as to why it had to crash at that moment! Next, after re-opening the editor, I was angry with myself for I had to write some of the stuff again that didn’t get saved.
Also, at times, previous this experience, it did feel that I have bloat of extensions that I am not using since I have stopped working with some of the frameworks in recent months (example, Angular).
What did I do? After none of the emotions helped, I had to find a way to cope better. On a network that was not so crappy, but did have to login every 30 minutes due to WIFI restrictions, I re-installed VSCode.
First thing I did was to install themes that I am habitual seeing all day. I like my editor to be charming and appealing to the eye. Thus, I use the following themes for different purposes.
Next, I changed a few things that I could remember from my previous settings.
Next step for me is to make this editor work like a charm with the help of some awesomely maintained and available for free extensions.
With prettier, I like to use my own set of configuration as described below.
"prettier.jsxSingleQuote": true, "prettier.printWidth": 100, "prettier.semi": false, "prettier.useTabs": true, "prettier.tabWidth": 2,

It’s a fantastic journey of how much a person can learn when he tries to do new things. That is pretty much the same feeling I had when I started writing my first VSCode Theme extension (Flutter Light Theme). It was amazing how much control we can have on its look and feel. Below are some of the things that I found easier while developing/deploying my theme.
