5 Awesome VS Code Plugins Useful in HTML

I have been using VS Code for a while now and I definitely find VS Code very practical to use. It is simple, efficient and easy to use. But one of the best things about VS Code is the wide variety of extensions or plugins available for it.

There are extensions for almost everything and they can really help you improve your workflow. In this blog post, I will share my 5 favorite HTML extensions for Visual Studio Code. These extensions have definitely helped me a lot and I hope they can do the same for you!

How to Install Extensions in VS Code?

Installing extensions in VS Code is extremely easy. Just come to the Extensions tab from the left side panel or press Shift Windows X and search in the window that appears. You can start the installation of the plugin by clicking the Install button on the plugin that interests you in the results.


Emmet, which you have to install in some text editors, but which comes with Visual Studio Code, is a technology that speeds up your HTML code a lot. It deserves a separate video because it is very comprehensive. Nevertheless, it is one of the plugins I use the most.

Auto Rename Tag

On an HTML page, when you change the opening tag, the closing tag of that tag is also replaced with the tag you changed. When you replace the div tag with h2, the closing tag div is automatically replaced with h2. This saves time.

HTML Tag Wrapper

If you want to add an extra HTML tag outside the HTML codes, you can use this plugin to add it easily. After installing the plugin, select the HTML codes and press Ctrl + I. It will immediately open a new tag outside the selected codes and ask you to type which tag to add.

Live Server

If you are a web developer, there is a good chance that you are constantly switching between your code editor and your web browser. This can be a time-consuming process, especially if you need to refresh your browser every time you make a change to your code.

The Live Server plugin, a must-have for front-end developers, is a plugin that allows the HTML code you write to be instantly displayed in the browser. It saves you the trouble of switching to the browser and refreshing every code you write.

Open In Browser

It’s a plugin that allows you to open the file you’re working on in your default browser or, if you prefer, in other browsers of your choice such as Firefox or Edge. To use the plugin, right-click on the file and select either Open in Default Browser (Alt + B) or Open in Other Browsers (Shift + Alt + B).

If you work with HTML code, you know how important it is to have a good code editor. And if you are looking for a great code editor, you should definitely check out Visual Studio Code.
