We're moving our org metadata management to SFDX project. Ideally, none of the metadata files supposed to be edited by Salseforce UI.
While in salesforce UI those two lines looks like this:
I get it, that in XML you must escape characters like ', ", <, >, but it is making harder to manage and write the actual code.
Same goes with Validation Rules, Workflows, EmailTemplates and other metadata.
Is there a conventional practice for editing such metadata, besides copy-pasting it using Salesforce UI? Maybe some extensions for vscode and/or salesforce CLI?
I've also asked this question here https://github.com/forcedotcom/salesforcedx-vscode/issues/2233 but no response yet
