Caleb Porzio has put together a post for those out there either considering using Microsoft's Visual Code Studio IDE or just want to see what it would be like for PHP development. In his post he shares his setup since making the switch over to the IDE full time.
I’m using VS Code as my primary editor these days and am really digging it. My setup is by no means perfect, but I've made lots of little tweaks along the way that you may benefit from.
I've set up these nifty categories, so feel free to jump around and try stuff out as you go, or come back later and use it as a reference.
Categories in the post include useful extensions, "must-have" settings, changing up the look and useful keybindings. There's plenty of links, output examples, screenshots of the IDE and the configuration options you'll need to change to update the settings to match his.
