It supports:

  • Code completion
  • Go to definition, type definition and references
  • Symbol renames
  • Solidity code formatting
  • Inline code validation from compiler errors/warnings for Hardhat projects
  • Hover help for variables, function calls, errors, events etc.
  • Code actions (quick fixes) suggested from compiler errors/warnings for Hardhat projects
  • Implement missing functions on interface with stubs
  • Constrain mutability by adding view/pure to function signature
  • Meet inheritance requirements by adding virtual/override on function signature
  • Provide accessibility by adding public/private to function signature
