Kudos to @SimonSiefke for rewriting the logic of this extension!


  • When you rename one HTML/XML tag, automatically rename the paired HTML/XML tag




Add entry into auto-rename-tag.activationOnLanguage to set the languages that the extension will be activated. By default, it is ["*"] and will be activated for all languages.

  "auto-rename-tag.activationOnLanguage": ["html", "xml", "php", "javascript"]

The setting should be set with language id defined in VS Code. Taking javascript definition as an example, we need to use javascript for .js and .es6, use javascriptreact for .jsx. So, if you want to enable this extension on .js file, you need to add javascript in settings.json.


From 1.44, VS Code offers the built-in auto update tags support for HTML and Handlebars that can be enabled with the setting editor.linkedEditing. If this setting is enabled, this extension will skip HTML and Handlebars files regardless of the languages listed in auto-rename-tag.activationOnLanguage
