Coders treat their text editors and IDE’s like fragile beings, and for good reason: we spend a ton of time in them and having our tweaks and extensions can make us incredibly productive for our personal workflows. I always love hearing about what extensions and workflows other developers use to see if I can put them to my own use.

You NEED multi colorized brackets in your IDE, it will change your life! pic.twitter.com/ehqonnSyy8

I have never put much thought into brackets but I’ve been using the Bracket Pair Colorizer extension in VSCode for a few days now and I’ll never go without it. Those of use who work regularly with the mess that JSX can create will appreciate this extension even more!
Regardless of text editor or IDE you use, give a bracket colorizer extension a try — if may help you to identify your blocks more quickly!
