Emmet in Visual Studio Code: Accelerate your HTML workflow

via Udemy


Take your HTML coding to the next level with Emmet in VS Code

What you'll learn:
  • Be more productive in writing HTML code. Type it fast and efficiently
  • Type and customize Emmet Abbreviations: from very simple to complex
  • Use Emmet's commands

What's this course about?

In this course you will learn how to be very productive in writing your html code. For that purpose we will use Emmet. The code editor for the course is Visual Studio Code (although you can use any code editor that supports Emmet).

More details please!

If you have never heard of Emmet before, it is a special plugin that allows you to type html "on steroids". VS Code comes bundled with it so you can use it straight out of the box. The sole purpose of the plugin is to allow you to type html in a fast and efficient way, saving a tone of time. You type a small abbreviation and in a second it expands into a big table, list, complete form or whatever html structure you can think of.

Emmet comes prepacked with a lot of features. In this course we will talk about every feature that could benefit your html workflow. We will start from the very basics. I will show you its core features. Then we will explore some useful commands that it offers. I have also provided assignments for the course so that you could practice and better memorise Emmet’s features.

If you still write html the old way this course will probably change it. Let’s get started!
