re: Capture Refactoring Ideas With Annotated TODOs VIEW POST


“Some IDEs can find and track TODO messages in a list for you, however this gets weird quickly with different kinds of TODOs. I think I'd like a way to pull up and sort these comments by type & date, […]”

I’ve never been quite satisfied with the common tags. I would also prefer having some more nuances. Still, so far I’ve stayed with them—mostly TODOs—, since many IDEs and editors by default automatically treat them in special ways, and other developers would probably rather look for TODOs than anything else. However, your post reminded me to check out the possible custom settings of my IDE for my personal projects and to consider adding my own tags. Thank you!
