See CSV in VSCode

Rainbow CSV

β€œLooking” at data can take many forms, but opening a CSV in Excel feels a little like poor form. I found Rainbow CSV for VSCode helpful for seeing the columns in a CSV. Totally an example of seeing this in the wild and going β€œI want that.”

Color Columns, header on highlight

Format Document

Working with a lot of JSON, there are a lot of cases where the data is not pretty, instead wrapped onto one line. Format document is quite useful and I wish there was an analog in RStudio.
