How can I help?
If you enjoy using the extension, please give it a ★★★★★ rating on the Visual Studio Marketplace.
Should you encounter bugs or if you have feature requests, head on over to the GitHub repo to open an issue if one doesn't already exist.
Pull requests are also very welcome, since I can't always get around to fixing all bugs myself. This is a personal passion project, so my time is limited.
Another way to help out is to sponser me on GitHub.
