Enable Emmet support for React in VS Code


Back in the day in 1965😂(just kidding I mean 2019) when I was writing plain HTML in VS Code I used to work with emmet to be super fast with my markup. I started using react in 2019 and guess what, emmet was not working by default with React in VS Code and I had to write all my mark up one by one with their attributes.

It turned out that Emmet, React and VS Code already had a relationship👨‍👩‍👦 that I didn't know of. You know what🤔 Let me just show you how to enable it in VS Code.

Go to settings > extensions > emmet > include languages and add javascript as the item and javascriptreact as the value.
