Visual Studio Code now has a really useful color picker built-in

Microsoft’s cross-platform code editor Visual Studio Code is getting a really useful with its latest update. Visual Studio Code now includes a built-in color-picker that lets you find the exact color you want, without you needing to use Google/Bing’s color pickers. The color picker will show up when you hover over a hex or RGB color code, and you can just play around with it just like a regular color picker to find a color. There’s also a slider that lets you choose the opacity of the color.

The addition of the color picker isn’t anything substantial, but the small details like this make Visual Studio Code really awesome. The August 2017 update for Visual Studio Code, for example, includes other minor new additions that’ll help you be more productive. HTML tags now auto close by themselves, and it’s also now possible to drag and drop files from the editor’s built-in search feature.
