Stop autosaving your code

Autosave has grown in popularity recently and become the default for many developers and teams, a must-have feature for various code editors. Apps like Visual Studio stubbornly refuse to fully provide the feature, and others make it optional. WebStorm, PHPStorm, and other JetBrains products have it enabled by default; for VSCode, you have to turn it on if you want it.

So obviously, we have two opposing views on the value of autosave because even though it can be highly beneficial, it has its downsides. In this article, we’ll look at both sides of the autosave divide, good causes for turning it off and good causes not to.

Why you should stop autosaving your code

First, some reasons to think twice before enabling autosave in your code editor:

1. Higher and wasted resource usage

High VSCode CPU usage

When using tools that perform an expensive action any time the file is changed and saved, like build watchers, continuous testing tools, FTP client file syncers, etc, turning on autosave will make these actions much more often. They will also happen when there are errors in the file, and when you make a tiny change. It might instead be preferable for these tools to run only when they need to; when you reach a point where you really want to see the results of your changes.

With greater CPU and memory usage comes lower battery usage and more heat from higher CPU temperature. Admittedly, this will continue to become less and less of an issue as computers increase in processing power, memory capacity, and battery life across the board. But depending on your particular situation, you might want to conserve these things as much as possible.

2. Harder to recover from unexpected errors

With autosave enabled, any single change you make to your code file is written to disk, whether these changes leave your file in a valid state or not. This makes it harder to recover from unwanted changes.

What if you make an unintended and possibly buggy change, maybe from temporarily trying something out, and then close the file accidentally or unknowingly (autosave makes this more likely to happen)? With your Undo history wiped out, it will be harder to recover the previous working version of the file. You might even forget how the code used to look before the change, and then have to expend some mental effort to take the code back to what it was.

Of course, using version control tools like Git and Mercurial significantly decrease the chances of this happening. Still, the previous working version of the file you would want to recover could be one with uncommitted changes, not available from version control, especially if you don’t commit very frequently or you have a commit scheduling determined by more than just the code working after small changes, e.g., committing when a mini milestone is reached, committing after every successful build, etc.

So if you want to continue enjoying the benefits of auto-save while minimizing the possibility of this issue occurring, it’s best if you always use source control and have a frequent commit schedule.

3. No auto-formatting on save

VSCode "Format on Save" option

Many IDEs and text editors have a feature that automatically formats your code, so you can focus on the task at hand. For example, VSCode has built-in auto-formatting functionality, and also allows extensions to be written to provide more advanced or opinionated auto-formatters for various languages and file extensions.

These editors typically provide an option to format the file when it is saved. For manual saving, this makes sense, as usually you Ctrl/Cmd + S after making a small working change to a file and stop typing. This seems like a great point for formatting, so it’s a great idea to combine it with the saving action so there’s no need to think about it.

Prettier's format-on-save feature.

However, this feature isn’t very compatible with auto-save, and that’s why editors/IDEs like WebStorm and VSCode do not format your code for you on auto-save (you can still press Ctrl (Cmd) + S for it to happen, but isn’t one of the reasons for enabling auto-save to avoid this over-used keyboard shortcut?).

For one, it would probably be annoying for the cursor to change position due to auto-formatting as you’re typing. And then, there’s also the thing we already talked about earlier – the file won’t always be syntactically valid after an auto-save, and the auto-formatter will fail.

There is one way though, to have auto-formatting while still leaving auto save turned on, and that is enabling auto-formatting on commit. You can do this using Git pre-commit hooks provided by tools like Prettier and Husky.

Still only happens on commit though, so unless your code is not too messed up or you’re ready to format manually, you’ll have to endure the disorderliness until your next commit (or just press that Ctrl + S).

4. Can be distracting

If you have a tool in your project that performs an action when files are saved and indicate this visually in your editor, i.e, a pop-up notification to indicate recompilation, output in the terminal to indicate rebuilding, etc. With auto-save turned on, it can be a bit distracting for these actions to occur whenever you stop typing for a little while.

For instance, in this demo, notice how the terminal output in VSCode changes wildly from typing in a small bunch of characters:

The terminal output changes wildly from typing in a small bunch of characters.

Text editors have tried to fix this problem (and the resource usage problem too) by adding autosave delays; waiting a certain period of time since the file was last changed before actually committing the changes to disk.

This reduces the frequency at which the save-triggering actions occur and solves the issue to an extent, but it’s a trade-off as lack of immediate saving produces another non-ideal situation.

5. Auto-save is not immediate

The auto-save doesn't happen immediately.

Having an auto-save delay means that your code file will not be saved immediately. This can lead to some problems:

Data loss

Probably the biggest motivator for enabling auto-save is to reduce the likelihood that you’ll lose all the hard work you’ve put into creating code should an unexpected event like a system crash or the forced closing of the application occur. The higher your auto-save delay, the greater the chance of this data loss happening.

VSCode takes this into account; when its auto-save delay is set to 2 or more seconds, it will show the unsaved file indicator for a recently modified file, and the unsaved changes warning dialog if you try to close the file until the delay completes.

On-save action lags

Tools that run on save like build watchers will be held back by the auto-save delay. With manual save, you know that hitting Ctrl + S will make the watcher re-build immediately, but with delayed auto-save, you’ll have to experience the lag between your finishing and the watcher reacting to changes. This could impact the responsiveness of your workflow.

Why you should autosave your code

The reasons above probably won’t be enough to convince many devs to disable autosave. It is a fantastic feature after all. And now let’s look at some of the reasons why it’s so great to have:

1. No more Ctrl + S fatigue

Comic on Ctrl + S fatigue.

If you use manual save, you probably press this keyboard shortcut hundreds or even thousands of times in a working day. Auto-saving helps you avoid this entirely. Even if you’re very used to it now, once you get used to your files being autosaved, you’ll be hesitant to back to the days of carrying out the ever-present chore of Ctrl + S.

Eradicating the need for Ctrl + S might even lower your chances of suffering from repetitive strain injury, as you no longer have to move your wrists and fingers over and over to type the key combination.

2. Save time and increase productivity

The time you spend pressing the key combination to save a file might not seem like much, but it does add up over time. Turning auto-save on lets you use this time for more productive activities. Of course, if you just switched to auto-save, you’ll have to work on unlearning your Ctrl + S reflex for this to be a benefit to you.

3. Certainty of working with latest changes

Any good automation turns a chore into a background operation you no longer have to think about. This is what auto-save does to saving files; no longer are you unsure of whether you’re working with the most recent version of the file. Build watchers and other on-file-change tools automatically run after the file’s contents are modified, and display output associated with the latest file version.

4. Avoids errors due to file not being saved

Error output in the console.

This follows from the previous point. Debugging can be a tedious process and it’s not uncommon for developers to forget to save a file when tirelessly hunting for bugs. You probably don’t want to experience the frustration of scrutinizing your code, line after line, wondering how this particular bug can still exist after everything you’ve done.

You might think I’m exaggerating, but it might take up to 15 (20? 30??) minutes before you finally notice the unsaved file indicator. Especially if you’ve been trapped in a cycle of making small changes, saving, seeing the futility of your changes, making more small changes, saving… when you’re finally successful and pressing Ctrl + S is the only issue, you might just assume your change didn’t work, instead of checking for other possible reasons for the reoccurrence of the error.

5. Encourages smaller changes due to triggering errors faster

When a tool performs an action due to a file being saved, the new contents of the file might be invalid and trigger an error. For example, a test case might fail when a continuous testing tool re-runs or there might be a syntax error when a build watcher re-builds.

Since this type of on-file-change action occur more (possibly much more) when files are auto-saved when you type code that causes an error, it will take a shorter time for the action to happen and for you to be notified of the error. You would have made a smaller amount of code changes, which will make it easier to identify the source of the error.


Autosave is an amazing feature with the potential to significantly improve your quality of life as a developer when used properly. Still, it’s not without its disadvantages, and as we saw in this article, enabling or disabling it is a trade-off to live with. Choose auto-format on save and lower CPU usage, or choose to banish Ctrl + S forever and gain the certainty of working with up-to-date files.

7 Unnecessary VSCode Extensions You Should Uninstall Now

The number of VSCode extensions you have installed is one of the main reasons why you might find the editor slow and power-hungry, as every new extension added increases the app’s memory and CPU usage. It’s important to keep this number as low as possible to minimize this resource consumption, and also reduce the chance of the extensions clashing with one another or with native functionality.

There are a significant number of extensions in the Marketplace that provide functionality VSCode already has built-in. Typically, they were developed at a time when the feature was yet to be added, but now that this is no longer the case, they are now largely redundant additions, and some of them have been deprecated for this reason.

Below, we cover a list of these integrated VSCode features and extensions that provide them. Uninstalling these now dispensable extensions will increase your editor’s performance and efficiency.

We’ll be listing settings that control the behavior of these features. If you don’t know how to change settings, this guide will help.

1. Auto closing of HTML tags

When you add a new HTML tag, this feature automatically adds the corresponding closing tag.

The closing tag for the div is automatically added.
The closing tag for the div is automatically added.


These extensions add the auto-closing feature to VSCode:

  • Auto Close Tag (8.6M downloads): “Automatically add HTML/XML close tag, same as Visual Studio IDE or Sublime Text”.
  • Close HTML/XML Tag (284K downloads): “Quickly close last opened HTML/XML tag”.


These settings enable/disable the auto-closing of tags in VSCode:

  • HTML: Auto Closing Tags: “Enable/disable autoclosing of HTML tags”. It is true by default.
  • JavaScript: Auto Closing Tags: “Enable/disable automatic closing of JSX tags”. It is true by default.
  • TypeScript: Auto Closing Tags: “Enable/disable automatic closing of JSX tags”. It is true by default.
Settings for auto closing in the VSCode Settings UI.
Settings for auto-closing in the Settings UI.

Add the following to your settings.json file to turn them on:


  "html.autoClosingTags": true,
  "javascript.autoClosingTags": true,
  "typescript.autoClosingTags": true

Note: VSCode doesn’t have native auto-closing support for .vue files. You can enable it by installing the Vue Languages Features (Volar) extension.

2. Auto trimming of trailing whitespace

An auto-trimming feature removes trailing whitespace from all the lines of a file, ensuring more consistent formatting.


The extensions let you trim trailing whitespace from a file:

  • Trailing Spaces (1.2M downloads): “Highlight trailing spaces and delete them in a flash!”.
  • AutoTrim (27.5K downloads): “Trailing whitespace often exists after editing lines of code, deleting trailing words, and so forth. This extension tracks the line numbers where a cursor is active, and removes trailing tabs and spaces from those lines when they no longer have an active cursor”.


VSCode has a built-in setting that can automatically remove trailing spaces from a file. Instead of requiring a command or highlight, it automatically trims the file when it is saved, making it a background operation you no longer have to think about.

Trailing spaces are removed from the file on save.
Trailing spaces are removed from the file on save.

Here’s the setting:

  • Files: Trim Trailing Whitespace: “When enabled, will trim trailing whitespace when saving a file”. It’s false by default.
The auto trimming setting in the VSCode Settings UI.
The auto trimming setting in the Settings UI.

Add this to your settings.json file to enable auto trimming:


  "files.trimTrailingWhitespace": true,

You might want to turn this setting off for Markdown files since you have to put two or more spaces at the end of a line to create a hard line break in the output, as stated in the CommonMark specification. Add this to your settings.json file to do so.


  "[markdown]": {
    "files.trimTrailingWhitespace": false

Alternatively, you can simply use a backslash (\) instead of spaces to create a hard line break.

3. Path autocompletion

The path autocompletion feature provides a list of files in your project to choose from when importing a module or linking a resource in HTML.


These extensions add the path autocompletion feature to VSCode:

  1. Path IntelliSense (8.5M downloads): “Visual Studio Code Plugin that autocompletes filenames”.
  2. Path Autocomplete (1.2M downloads): “Provides path completion for Visual Studio Code and VS Code for the web”.


VS Code already has native path autocompletion. When you’re about to type in a filename to import (typically when the opening quote is typed), a list of files in the project will be suggested, from which selecting one will automatically insert the filename.

4. Settings Sync

Ever since cross-device syncing support was added to VSCode, we no longer have to turn to third-party extensions for this.


This is by far the most popular extension for syncing VSCode settings:

  • Settings Sync (3.5M downloads): “Synchronize Settings, Snippets, Themes, File Icons, Launch, Keybindings, Workspaces, and Extensions Across Multiple Machines Using GitHub Gist”.


You can read all about the built-in Settings Sync feature here.

Here are the Setting Sync options shown in the Settings UI.

5. Snippets for HTML and CSS

These extensions help you save time by adding common HTML and CSS snippets using abbreviations you can easily recall.


These extensions bring convenient HTML and/or CSS snippets to VSCode:

  • HTML Snippets (8.7M downloads): “Full HTML tags including HTML5 snippets”.
  • HTML Boilerplate (1.9M downloads): “A basic HTML5 boilerplate snippet generator”.
  • CSS Snippets (105K downloads): “Shorthand snippets for CSS”.


Emmet is a built-in VSCode feature that provides HTML and CSS snippets like these extensions. As stated in the official VSCode Emmet guide, it is enabled by default in html, haml, pug, slim, jsx, xml, xsl, css, scss, sass, less, and stylus files.

When you start typing an Emmet abbreviation, a suggestion will pop up with auto-completion options. You’ll also see a preview of the expansion as you type in the VSCode’s suggestion documentation fly-out (if it is open).

As you saw in the demo, this:


was expanded to this:

    <p class="rule1">r</p>
    <p class="rule2"></p>
    <p class="rule3"></p>

Notice how similar the abbreviations are to CSS selectors. This is by design; as stated on the official website, Emmet syntax is inspired by CSS selectors.

6. Bracket pair colorization

Bracket pair coloring is a popular syntax highlighting feature that colors brackets differently based on their order. It makes it easier to identify scope and helps in writing expressions that involve many parentheses, such as single-statement function composition.


Until VSCode had it built-in, these extensions helped enable the feature in the editor:

  1. Bracket Pair Colorizer 2 (5.4M downloads): “A customizable extension for colorizing matching brackets”. It has now been deprecated.
  2. Rainbow Brackets: (1.9M downloads): “A rainbow brackets extension for VS Code”.


After seeing the demand for bracket pair coloring and the performance issues involved in adding the feature as an extension, the VSCode team decided to integrate it into the editor. In this blog, they say that the native bracket pair coloring feature is more than 10,000 times faster than Bracket Pair Colorizer 2.

Here’s the setting to enable/disable bracket pair colorization.

  • Editor > Bracket Pair Colorization: “Controls whether bracket pair colorization is enabled or not”. It is true by default, there’s been some debate about whether this should be the case here.
The bracket pair colorization option in the VSCode Settings UI.
The bracket pair colorization option in the Settings UI.

You can enable this by adding the following to your settings.json


  "editor.bracketPairColorization.enabled": true

There is a maximum of 6 colors that can be used for successive nesting levels. Although each theme will have its maximum. For example, the Dracula theme has 6 colors by default, but the One Dark Pro theme has only 3.

Left: bracket pair colors in One Dark Pro theme. Right: bracket pair in Dracula theme.
Left: bracket pair colors in One Dark Pro theme. Right: bracket pair in Dracula theme.

Nevertheless, you can customize the bracket colors for any theme with the workbench.colorCustomizations setting.

  "workbench.colorCustomizations": {
    "[One Dark Pro]": {
      "editorBracketHighlight.foreground1": "#e78009",
      "editorBracketHighlight.foreground2": "#22990a",
      "editorBracketHighlight.foreground3": "#1411c4",
      "editorBracketHighlight.foreground4": "#ddcf11",
      "editorBracketHighlight.foreground5": "#9c15c5",
      "editorBracketHighlight.foreground6": "#ffffff",
      "editorBracketHighlight.unexpectedBracket.foreground": "#FF2C6D"

We specify the name of the theme in square brackets ([ ]), then we assign values to the relevant properties. The editorBracketHighlight.foregroundN property sets the color of the Nth set of brackets, and 6 is the maximum.

Now this will be the bracket pair colorization for One Dark Pro:

Customized bracket pair colorization for One Dark Pro theme.

7. Auto importing of modules

With an auto-importing feature, when a function, variable, or some other member of a module is referenced in a file, the module is automatically imported into the file, saving time and effort.

The function is automatically imported from the file when referenced.
The function is automatically imported from the file when referenced.

If the module files are moved, the feature will help automatically update them.

Imports for a file are automatically updated on move.
Imports for a file are automatically updated on move.


Here are some of the most popular extensions providing the feature for VSCode users:

  • Auto Import (2.7M downloads): “Automatically finds, parses, and provides code actions and code completion for all available imports. Works with Typescript and TSX”.
  • Move TS (606K downloads): “extension for moving typescript files and folders and updating relative imports in your workspace”.


You can enable or disable auto-importing modules in VSCode with the following settings.

  • JavaScript > Suggest: Auto Imports: “Enable/disable auto import suggestions”. It is true by default.
  • TypeScript > Suggest: Auto Imports: “Enable/disable auto import suggestions”. It is true by default.
  • JavaScript > Update Imports on File Move: “Enable/disable automatic updating of import paths when you rename or move a file in VS Code”. The default value is prompt, meaning that a dialog is shown to you, asking if you want to update the imports of the moved file. Setting it to alwayswill cause the dialog to be skipped, and never will turn off the feature entirely.
  • TypeScript > Update Imports on File Move: “Enable/disable automatic updating of import paths when you rename or move a file in VS Code”. Like the previous setting, it has possible values of prompt, always, and never, and the default is prompt.
One of the auto import settings in the Settings UI.
One of the auto import settings in the Settings UI.

You can control these settings with these settings.json properties:

  "javascript.suggest.autoImports": true,
  "typescript.suggest.autoImports": true,
  "javascript.updateImportsOnFileMove.enabled": "prompt",
  "typescript.updateImportsOnFileMove.enabled": "prompt"

You can also add this setting if you want your imports to be organized any time the file is saved.

"editor.codeActionsOnSave": {
    "source.organizeImports": true

This will remove unused import statements and arrange import statements with absolute paths on top, providing a hands-off way to clean up your code.


These extensions might have served a crucial purpose in the past, but not anymore for the most part, as much of the functionality they provide have been added as built-in VSCode features. Remove them to reduce the bloat and increase the efficiency of Visual Studio Code.
