VS Code Custom Data Format

Source file extensions: .(html|css)-data.json

Files are written in VS Code Custom Data Format . The data enriches autocomplete of HTML and CSS in the editor, so you can use it to describe your own custom elements and CSS properties.

According to HTML Language Service and CSS Language Service the files should have a suffix .html-data.json and .css-data.json correspondingly. Such files will be located anywhere in the project tree and provided to the editor automatically.
