Show HN: VS Code GoLang Productivity Extension (visualstudio.com)
3 points by tooltitude 9 months ago | hide | past | favorite
Let me introduce the Tooltitude VS Code extension. Our extension augments the official GoLang extension with a set of power tools which make you a more productive developer.

What do we provide:

- Inspections - checks which look at your code and warn you about potential problems in your code. Here’re some highlights

  - Highlighting of deprecated symbol usages in the editor (gopls doesn’t highlight them at the moment of writing)

  - Variable shadowing detection

  - Use of interface{} instead of any 

  - Redundant parenthesis
- Code actions - code changes activated by Ctrl+. (Win, Linux), or Cmd+. (on Mac).

  - Handle error: https://twitter.com/tooltitude/status/1620448875311165442
