  • vscode-front-matter

    Front Matter is a CMS running straight in Visual Studio Code. Can be used with static site generators like Hugo, Jekyll, Hexo, NextJs, Gatsby, and many more...

    As it turns out VSCode can be insanely powerful if one sets it up carefully. The Front Matter extension can be enough in itself to manage a blog. The power tools extension can do useful stuff, like it can copy the formatted path of a changed image to clipboard which allows the client to just copy an image to a folder and press ctrl+v anywhere in a markdown file to paste the image there in markdown format. VSCode snippets in tandem with svelte components can do complex and easily usable stuff, and of course there can be simple buttons in vs code for example to build the static site and deploy it to their server.

  • remark-directive

    remark plugin to support directives
