I am trying to see if it’s possible to add a list all of the currently opened files into the UI? Possibly this would be as a Sidebar? I’ve looked at the Docs for making a Sidebar and this seems a viable solution, so I think this would innvolve building a treeview with the list of open files, but I’m not sure how I would go about accessing the currently opened files, is there any easy way to access the currently open files?
Here’s a bit of an explanation to why I’m exploring if this is possible. Currently I use the Brackets editor as my main text editor, I’m aware that later in 2021 it is no longer going to be actively supported by Adobe anymore. Whilst this doesn’t mean that Brackets will stop working any time soon I’m keen to explore alternatives, Nova is one that I like a lot of the features but there’s certain functionality I like in Brackets that I was wondering if I could recreate via an extension.
The main function in Brackets that I like is that the currently open files appear in a “Working files” section above the Project File Tree. I often have a lot of files open at once in a project so horizontal tabs quickly become useless for switching between documents, so re-creating some kind of working files section with a list of open files would be extremely useful (and potentially to other Brackets-refugees like me?).
Thanks, any thoughts / suggestions welcome!
