Folder Path Color
This extension allows you to color-code folders and files in Visual Studio Code by specifying paths and colors in your workspace settings. The colors are visible in the Explorer view and in the tabs, unless overridden by the app.
Works in search and tabs as well.
This extension provides the ability to customize the appearance of folders in your workspace explorer. You can assign colors and symbols to folders based on their paths, and the assigned color and symbol will be displayed next to the folder name. You can also specify a tooltip for each folder, which will be displayed when you hover over the folder's symbol.
It's important to note that when a file is under source control and there are changes to be committed, Git will overwrite the file's color with its own color scheme. However, the symbol assigned by this extension will remain visible next to the file name. The custom color will still be shown for folders with Git changes.
In the source control tab, custom colors on files won't be visible due to VS Code's design, but the symbol will still be displayed next to the file name, providing a visual cue even in this scenario.
This extension does not have any additional requirements or dependencies.
Predefined color names:
Important note: Due to limitations of the VS Code API, the extension does not support specifying custom RGB colors. Colors can only be specified as predefined color names which map to theme colors in VS Code.
