Spell Checking With Visual Studio Code

Andy Levy shows how to create a custom dictionary for a programming language in Visual Studio Code:

But as you can see from the marketplace page there, by default this plugin doesn’t know PowerShell. In my user settings file settings.json, I added PowerShell to the cSpell.enabledLanguageIds section so it’s always recognized:

"cSpell.enabledLanguageIds": [
        "c",
        "cpp",
        "csharp",
        "go",
        "javascript",
        "javascriptreact",
        "json",
        "latex",
        "markdown",
        "php",
        "plaintext",
        "powershell",
        "python",
        "text",
        "typescript",
        "typescriptreact",
        "yml",
        "powershell"
    ],

And with that, VSCode was giving me green squiggles under lots of words – both misspelled and not. Code Spellchecker doesn’t understand PowerShell in its default setup, it doesn’t have a dictionary for it. Just to get things started, I added a cSpell.userWords section to my settings.json and the squiggles started disappearing.

It’s an interesting post, so read the whole thing.
