Vuln Cost Plugin for Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is probably the most widely-used code editor for JavaScript developers. As 80 or maybe even 90 percent of the code developed is heavily dependent on open source packages, developers need to know what these packages do.

Do you, for instance, know for all the packages you import if they contain known security vulnerabilities? I created this free, open source, Vuln Cost extension for VS Code can help you with this. Vuln Cost enables you to see existing vulnerabilities and their severity in the open source packages you import, as you code.

Feel free to reach out, and let us know what you think.

This is a really great extension! Just installed it alongside Error Lens, and it works like a charm!
