I think it looks really cool. I would definitely use it. I haven't found anything that can help keep code snippets and notes in one place for VSCode. Having a file system approach that actually stores code and notes in gist is an awesome idea. I guess it's so new that it isn't in the marketplace yet?

So I just saw your extension on the marketplace and I am now using it. It does seem very cool. I could see myself using it. But ideally, to make it more useful it would be great if it didn't open up as a separate workspace. Instead, it would be great if it just shows its own icon in the sidebar. Also, if it could show all the gists, rather than having to put in a gist ID, that would be awesome. It's off to a great start.

Just published it to the marketplace! Grab it here or search for GistFS in VS Code.
