Markdown Reference Links in Visual Studio Code
This VS Code extension let’s you find a reference link already in the file being edited. Many times a second link to a URL is needed you linked to earlier in the document.
How it works:
- Scan the document and collect all the reference links in it
- Present the list of links, allows you to choose the one you want
- Add the Markdown code that refers to the chosen link
Two ways to get to make this work. First , select the text you want to become the link. Then:
- Open the palette, find the extension and press enter.
- Or: Press
VS Code Gallery
The extension is up on the gallery. In VS Code, press
ext install press
Enter. This gets a list of extensions, then type
xref to search for this markdown one. From there you can install it.
