SPFx Series 5– Important VS Code Extensions for SharePoint and Office 365 developments


As a SharePoint developer, we are good in Visual Studio. But Microsoft is planning to change the SharePoint development strategies and we expect the new SharePoint Framework very soon. In my previous post, I have explained the different IDEs for TypeScript / JavaScript based development.

Visual Studio Code is a cross-platform IDE, which is developed using Node.JS and Electron. Since it is a open source and cross-platform, similar to other IDEs, plenty of plug-ins are available in the VS Code Extension Market Place.
