Not so hot-on-the-heals of my 2021 post in enabling spell checking in VS Code, I was frustrated that I needed to know how many words were in a Markdown file today. Fortunately there’s a plugin for that.
As before, manual installation is easy:
- Open VS Code
Ctrl+Shift+Xon Windows) to open the extensions pane
- Type ms-vscode.wordcount (to find the Microsoft offical plugin) hit enter
- Wait for it to install
- Close Extension page
I still need to work on porting over my other settings and managing (i.e. automating) the configuration on all my machines.
