Hi,

Robot Framework is text based and will read *.robot and *.resource files.

There are two interesting Plugins for VSCode.

I would recomment to work with
Robot Framework Language Server
https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=robocorptech.robotframework-lsp

This is unter active development right now and improves from time to time. It has also a possibility to execute robot tests.

An older but also quite good Plugin is
Robot Framework Intellisense FORK
https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=Snooz82.rf-intellisense

This is a fork the original Robot Framework Intellisense Plugin, with some bugfixes and imporvements.
This has also some nice features, but over time the first one will be better.
