VS Code Settings Sync Extension

If you work on multiple machines, the handy Settings Sync extension can keep your extensions and keyboard shortcuts synchronized via a public gist.

A few notes:

  • You’ll have to set up a Github personal access token and make a note of it, because that’s what you’ll need to enter on the secondary machines you want to sync.
  • When setting up my second machine to sync, I had to restart VS Code after entering my Github token and gist ID. After the restart the extension went to work and all my keyboard shortcuts and extensions were updated.
