Make Vscode Annoy Me When I Make a Typo

Not sure why, but I’ve had 2 typos that keep plauging me.

  • ngnix should be nginx
  • chocolatey should be chocolatey

With Go, I get compile errors with typos, so no problem. With PowerShell or Bash, this can be really annoying and waste time in debugging.

You can configure many autocorrect tools on a system level, but I wanted a quick solution for making it super obvious in my code as I typed without any new spelling extensions.

Install Highlight: fabiospampinato.vscode-highlight 1

Configure a rule like this:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
"highlight.regexes": {
    "(ngnix)": [
            {
                "overviewRulerColor": "#ff0000",
                "backgroundColor": "#ff0000",
                "color": "#1f1f1f",
                "fontWeight": "bold"
            },
            {
                "backgroundColor": "#d90000",
                "color": "#1f1f1f"
            }
        ],
}
