VSCode Ethereum Security Bundle
A meta-extension bundling vscode marketplace plugins for secure Ethereum smart contract development.
📚What's the story?
- You are developing or auditing smart contracts for the Ethereum ecosystem.
- (optional) You love
git and your home is github❤ .
- You are battling with all the different IDE's that claim to support smart contract languages but they do not seem to be the right fit ⚡😐.
- The IDE's by default do not sufficiently support you doing a good job out.
- The options provided by the IDE's marketplace is just overwhelming.
This meta-extension aims to help you getting your IDE up to speed. It does not contribute any new functionality by its own, but installs a curated set of useful extensions for ethereum developers from the vscode marketplace. 🤓
🎁 What's included?
Alright, this is supposed to be a community curated extension. If you feel like an extension is missing or should be removed from the bundle? Vote for it by creating an issue and we'll remove/add it if the vote succeeds! Together we can make this work for everyone :)
- eg2.vscode-npm-script - NPM integration for vscode. Install dependencies directly by right-clicking
package.json in your vscode file explorer.
- eamodio.gitlens - Git support. Especially useful when reviewing diffs.
Cool, you've come this far therefore I expect you're genuinely interested in either the individual extensions or you just installed the one-click bundle :) Either way, you're welcome!
