Git Line Blame
Visual Studio Code extension that displays inline information in the text editor about the latest commit that edited the currently selected line.
This extension is small on purpose and doesn't come with any settings. It will automatically activate when you open a workspace that contains a git repository. When you select a line in the text editor, the commit summary, author, and time elapsed since that commit edited that line will appear next to the line number in a discrete and unobtrusive color.
First, if you're new to VS Code extension development, skim through CONTRIBUTING.md first.

Why not just use GitLens instead?
GitLens is an excellent extension but I found it overly complicated for my needs, with many features I didn't need. It's also frustrating that the extension keeps pushing for its paid version. In contrast, this extension will always be free and open source software (see license), and will never do more than just provide the line blame information.
