Lost in VS Code windows?

sourishkrout profile image Sebastian ใƒป2 min read

Marquee strives to make working inside VS Code more productive ๐Ÿฆพ. Thanks to VS Code's lightweight nature, devs love to open multiple windows for projects, repo, and workspaces. Running multiple VS Code ๐Ÿ—ƒ instances at the same time. Here are some tools available in Marquee's latest release to help you stay on top of your workspaces.

Install Marquee, if you haven't already ๐Ÿค”

๐Ÿ’ฃ Add todo from editor's context menu
Creating a todo while you're deep inside your editor is now as easy as two clicks away. Just select the text inside your editor, right click, and select "Add todo to Marquee". Done.

Add todo from context menu

๐Ÿค– Auto-suggest to add todos
Even more conveniently Marquee will auto-suggest to add a line as todo whenever it's prefixed with uppercase TODO. Notice the blue underline, hover over it, click "Quick Fix", "Add todo". Leave losing track of your thoughts while coding behind you.

Auto-suggest adding todos in code

๐Ÿค“ Workspace specific todos
Marquee will keep a record of all your VS Codes no matter whether you open a new window for workspaces or folders. Whenever you add a new todo Marquee will associate it with your currently active workspace and allow you to toggle the list of displayed todos between all of them (global) or workspace-specifc, scoped down to the active workspace/folder you're currently running.

Toggle between global/workspace todos

๐Ÿ“ฎ Didn't do it for you?
Let us know what you think. We've located a "Give Feedback" button in the Marquee UX to easily share feedback ๐Ÿ“จ with us, good or bad. Please be candid ๐Ÿคฉ. If you like Marquee, let your ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿคโ€๐Ÿง‘ friends know. We mightily appreciate it!

Don't forget to install Marquee and give it a spin please.

Hella potential here. Where can we donate to fund this glorious extension?

You got a feature roadmap for Marquee?

Any integrations planned?

Hey Mario! Couldn't agree more. The journey has just started.

We've got some things planned but really want to hear community feedback. I will message you via email - would love to hear what you'd like to get out of the Marquee experience.

Cool Extension to have!
How is the location is being set in this extension?
It is showing wrong.

Since we're trying to be respectful of people's privacy it only does geocoding based on IP which can be off at time. Will be sure to add a way to overwrite the location soon. Thanks for the feedback!

Can we add an option to manually search for location and set it?

Sebastian,
Did you create this extension? It's pretty cool. It has me thinking of trying to sync it with MS Graph API for things like the Todos.

Yes, we did create it.

Essentially you'd like to have your todos be sync'd with MS Graph API? Not familiar with it specifically but we're considering sync-ing with other services.

Thanks for this I was looking for something like this as I was noting the todo tasks in Google Tasks and app and referring to it later.

Hey, I had one feature that you can use to enhance. I noticed that once I add the TODO to code it just adds it to the TODO list but there is no link where exactly in the project directory the TODO has been added. So adding a clickable link to go to the respective line of code to do the changes will be a great enhancement. If this feature is already there then do tell me so.
