OctoberCode - VS Code extension

Hello everyone! Want to introduce my new vscode extension for work with OctoberCMS.

It provides some cool features, such as

  • template files formatting
  • code completions
  • code generation
  • code navigation
  • some diagnostics and quick fixes
  • and more…

Extension can be downloaded here October Code - Visual Studio Marketplace


I look forward to trying it out!

Works really well. Thanks for creating this. Will use it from now on.

great job! thank you

Uoh… I’ve been waiting for such an extension for a while. Thanks a lot!

Great job!


Great plugin! Really great job.

One question. How can I detect OctoberCMS in VSCode? I’ve got always the error that octobercms is not detected.

Thank you!

OctoberCMS is detecting by artisan and october/system or october/all in composer.json in project root.

Thanks for the reply! Now everything works fine.

I normally only work in the themes folder, so there was my problem.

When working in a theme file, starting to type {{ the plugin autocomplete with }}{{ instead of }} in some cases. Anyone see this as well?

It happens when setting editor.autoClosingBrackets != "always". Will try to fix it in next release.

Nice job!

Thanks for your contribution.

Thank you very much! It’s very good.

I got two question:

  • What if I opened the VSCode where the OC is not at root? Can I set the OC installation root path somewhere?
  • How can I enable emmet abbreviation?


What if I opened the VSCode where the OC is not at root? Can I set the OC installation root path somewhere?

No, now extension does not support anything like that.

How can I enable emmet abbreviation?

Add this to your VSCode config

"emmet.includeLanguages": {
    "october-tpl": "html"

You can find more info about configuring VSCode in README.md of extension or on extension’s VSCode marketplace page.

Not sure but I might have found an error within the extension:

When I use Tab Icons within a fields.yaml file and those tabs has terms from the lang file as name, they’re marked as invalid:

        'my.plugin::lang.terms.data': icon-file-image-o

But actually they work within OctoberCMS, so I guess there’s a mistake?

I use version v0.7.6

Thanks. Will fix in next release

OctoberCode was updated to version 0.9.0. This release brings:

  • support for multi-folder workspaces
  • work with modules and app directory
  • support for parent/child themes
  • some new completions and links
  • many improvements in existing functionality

All changes you can see on changelog tab of extension’s vscode marketplace page.


Hi, I really like your extension! Just use 0.9.1 of your plugin and found one missing keyword for config_list.yaml:
the structure: tag is not recognized:

structure: => shown as red
    showTree: false
    showReorder: true
    maxDepth: 1

Hi, in your case tag structure marked as red because in YAML schema for config_list.yaml properties showTree, treeExpanded and showReorder inside tag structure marked as required. Will make all optional in next release.
