As developers we spend more time reading code, than writing. One of the most common tasks we do are comparing items. Using symbols can make your code easier & more enjoyable to read.
Here's an example of how adding coding symbols, also known as font ligatures look.
To add this to VS Code, do the following:
Install the Fira Code font on your computer.
Edit your user settings in VS Code to use Font Ligatures and the 'Fira Code' font.
"editor.fontFamily": "'Fira Code', Consolas, 'Courier New', monospace, 'Segoe UI Emoji'", "editor.fontLigatures": true,
That's it! You're done! Enjoy an improved coding experience!
