Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is a free code editor supplied by Microsoft. It is not required to use the code base, but it comes prepackaged with many tools that are useful for web development and design. It also allows you to install extensions like many other popular editors (e.g. Sublime Text 3).


First, you will need to download and install the editor, which you can do so here. It already comes set up with most of the tools you'll need.



To install our snippets, simply:

  1. Add a new folder in the root of your project directory called.vscode.
  2. Then, download the snippet file here.
  3. Lastly, move the downloaded snippets file to the .vscodefolder.

And that's it! Any HTML page you make in the project folder will have access to these time-saving snippets.

Note: One can have multiple code-snippets files in the same .vscodedirectory.


To use a snippet, type the shortcut and hit tab. You can then tab between all of the editable areas. Familiarize yourself with these, and you'll be building websites rapidly in no time.
