Thanks a lot...

When I first saw your post about this extension I thought it was neat but I didn't think I would have much use for it, but after working on a project this weekend and fooling around with different vscode windows, it got me thinking and now I'm on board.

Thanks! No worries, several people have said this too :)

Some folks only use one instance ... while others use several.

Thank you, John.
I can't wait to give it a try.

But I seem to have run into a problem.

Anyone else having the issue by chance? 😅

Nice idea. I work in a lot of different languages, would be nice if there could be some way to set up a language-color mapping to easily identify instances for certain languages.

Thanks!

One idea you could try is to create a "favorite" and save it for the different languages, the choose those for the projects.

I think what you are suggesting though is that when Peacock starts up it could try to determine the language if your project and choose a specific color for it. Feel free to add to the issues.

Yes, the workaround would work, but I was looking for something more automatic, i.e. if there's a Gemfile, use the Ruby color. package.json, one Javascript color to go, sir. I'll add an issue for that.

Wow! This is perfect, I can't wait to give it a shot. My last job was at an agency, and I'd use a different Code window for each client project, always getting them jumbled and confused. This would've been a big help.

I thought this was a really neat extension when I installed it a couple of weeks ago, but then this week when I started using RemoteFS to connect to my different Linux boxes it became absolutely essential for keeping track of which server I'm connecting to. Thank you for this!

We all love our themes :)

Perhaps make some favorite colors with Peacock that compliment your theme?

Looks nice to me. Is it possible to colorize only left border of the activity pane instead of all the pane?

Very neat, I'll try this out. I also write articles in VSCode, do you use any extensions or external apps for things like grammar or structure?

I hope you like it.

I'm working on an extension to help with this. But I hit a few snags on getting APIs for grammar. I tweeted to grammarly about it but it appears they have no roadmap for an API.
