I've just been through the VS Code installation process twice. The initial install is quick and painless (as is the editor itself), but I have had to remember the list of extensions I installed and am installing new ones a great rate.
With Sublime Text, I'd just copy a settings file to another PC and could auto-install any workflow dependencies that way, but what is the approach with VS Code?
Can I just back up a JSON 'settings' file or similar so that I can easily re-create my working environment (complete with extensions)?
I've submitted an answer for this on the main StackOverflow site - pasted below for context
I've need to do this myself a few times - especially when installing on another machine.
Depending on your platform VS Code looks for your extensions folder (
.vscode/extensions) on one of the following paths:
That should show you a list of the extensions
I've also had success using Visual Studio Code Settings Sync Extension to sync settings to GitHub gist
EDIT: In the lastest release of VSCode (May 2016) it is now possible to list the installed extension in the command line
