    The better version is to have something like gitlens installed into your IDE and have it dynamically render those git comments.

    I learned the cli first, but I do use vscode's git integration for staging and committing. I also love gitlens's "commits by file / line" feature.

    Hi. Vs code is pretty well integrated with git. There are built in git support and a couple other plugins. For example, the most popular git plugin for vs code is git lens. It also has powerful rebase editor (i guess, it is my favorite feature), which you can enable by following this guide. I personally realy enjoing Git Graph extension, which allow you to observe your git history in pretty similar to git kraken way. It also provide navigation facilities and some other useful features.

    If you are going to use VSCode to manage your Git operations like merging, rebasing, etc., then I would highly recommend the GitLens plugin.

    Redder color means changes were made very recently in that area. Again you can fully customize age thresholds, locations, the color of the most recent and least recent changes, etc., from the settings.

    Phone a friend. I recommend integrating git blame into your development environment I use the Git lens plugin which shows you, directly within files in a code editor, who authored certain file changes and the PR which can be helpful for quickly getting more context regarding decisions by looking at the associated Pull Request or having the opportunity to connect directly with the committer. Pair programming can be an effective way to debug and share knowledge. Similar, to the magic of figuring out the solution to a bug in the shower or overnight there is a phenomenon called rubber ducky debugging in which just explaining the issue to someone else (even an inanimate rubber duck) can help make the solution more obvious.
