Including a basic German dictionary would increase the size of extension by at least 4 MB, so that generally might not make sense to do by default.

- Quick guide: Installing Node.js with nvm to Linux & OS X
After installing the Node itself, run these two commands in your computer's command line terminal:

After that, follow the instructions of the Spell Checker's documentation. You can either add the settings to VS Code's global settings, or have project-specific custom adjustments.
