"Doc Tab" is a Visual Studio Code extension that allows you to edit the doc comments in a new tab.
Editors like VSCode support markdown preview for JSDoc / TSDoc, but it's often challenging to edit, format, and indent it within the comment block. This extension is designed to assist in editing doc comments in a new tab, providing the benefits of specific language features such as Markdown's syntax highlighting, intelligence, linting, and formatting.
