Auto Close Tag - Automatically add HTML/XML close tag, same as Visual Studio IDE or Sublime Text.
Auto Import - Automatically finds, parses and provides code actions and code completion for all available imports (altough VSCode has auto import funcionatlity, this plugin is a great complement).
json2ts - Convert a JSON from clipboard to TypeScript interfaces. (Ctrl+Alt+V).
"prettier.singleQuote": true (this helps when using auto import extension or the VSCode auto import functionality).
"prettier.tabWidth": 2 (angular lint uses 2 spaces as default indentation). With this setting, you can continue using tabs if it is your preference
"prettier.useTabs": false (same as above)
Path Intellisense - VSCode has a very good auto import capability, but sometime you still need to import some files manually, and this extension helps a lot in these cases.
Move TS - this is a great extension to help you refactor and re-organize some files and components in the project. It automatically fixes the imports on the file (or component folder) that is being moved and also files that are importing the component you are moving. To use it: right-click on a file or folder in the Project Explorer pane and select 'Move TypeScript'.
Angular Schematics - this extension allows you to launch Angular schematics (CLI commands) from files Explorer (right-click) or Command Palette.
TSLint - linter for the TypeScript language, help fixing error in TS code.
Other extensions recommended, but not included in this package
angular2-inline - support for inline HTML and CSS in angular components. I don't use inline templates, but this is a helpful extension in case you use inline HTML or CSS.
NgBootstrap Snippets - if you need Bootstrap 4 support in you angular project, this extension has some helpful snippets.
vscode-icons - my favorite collection of icons for VSCode projects!
Bracket Pair Colorizer - This extension allows matching brackets to be identified with colours. Great when you have nested brackets. I usually keep this extension disabled and only enable it when needed.
