Visual Studio Code Live Server: Visual Studio Code is one of the popular code editor out there. It’s free, it has a clean interface, and it has countless extensions which make programming simpler and more fun.
Well, this is passible on the off chance that you configure a useful extension in VS Code called live-server. In this tutorial, We will clarify the details of how it works and how to set up and configure a live server in your VS Code editor.
For what reason would it be a good idea for me to use the live-server extension?
Normally, when you make a change in your code or write something new, you need to refresh the page manually to see the changes.
In other words, on the off chance that you make 100 changes in your code each day, you need to refresh the browser 100 times.
The live-server extension, however, automates this for you. After to introducing it, an automated localhost will be able to run in your browser, which you can begin with a single button.
When you make changes in your code or write something new , after saving it, the browser will auto-refresh itself. Then, at that point, you will be able to see the changes rapidly and automatically.

Create a New HTML Page
To begin the live server, ensure you basically have an HTML created. To do that, click on the file button at the very top, then, at that point, choose the new file button and type index.html:
Presently after you created an HTML page and installed the extension you ought to have the option to see a “Go Live” icon right beneath in the blue field:
In the event that you don’t see it simply restart VS Code. Then, at that point, it ought to be OK.
Click on the “Go Live” button and the localhost (assigned to a port number) should begin your default browser. You can begin and stop your live server whenever by clicking on the same button.
