TypeScript Type-Name-Sync Autocomplete
VSCode extension that seamlessly syncs and autocompletes TypeScript variable names and types, turning declarations into
const apple: Apple.
- Type annotation :
const apple: Apple ...
- New expression:
const apple = new Apple ...
Infer type from variable name (Sorting of suggestions relevance to variable name)
: following a variable name, the autocomplete suggestions will sort types based on the similarity to the variable name. For instance, if you have a type
MyService and you start typing
myService:, the extension will push
MyService to the top of the suggestions list.
Inter variable name from type (Automatic variable naming with magic word)
If you're not sure about a variable name, you can use a magic word
_ as a placeholder. When you pick a type from the suggestions list after this magic word, the extension will replace the placeholder with an appropriate variable name. For example, typing
_: MyService and selecting
MyService from the suggestions will transform the code to
- Open VSCode
- Go to Extensions
- Search for "TypeScript Type-Name-Sync Autocomplete"
- Install and Reload VSCode
Start typing a variable declaration in your TypeScript file.
After the variable name, type
: to get type suggestions sorted based on the variable name.
Alternatively, use the magic word
_ as your variable name and choose a type from the suggestions to get an automatic variable name based on the type.
