Keep your place when jumping between a different parts of your code. This is a VSCode extension that will highlight lines as you edit them, fading as you move away.
Jump between lines using
This extension allows the following settings:
"rgb(153, 128, 250)"
The color of the highlighted trail (in rgb format). I'd recommend keeping this subtle - black (
rgb(0, 0, 0)) if you have a dark theme and white (
rgb(255, 255, 255)) if you have a light theme.
The maximum opacity for line highlights (
1) - higher number means a more opaque highlight.
Whether or not to add line highlights. If this is
false, it will still allow navigation between chunks.
Whether or not to highlight the actively focused chunk. It can be distracting to highlight the code you're actively working on, so this is off by default.
The number of changes to save in history
The number of changes to highlight. A lower number drops off more quickly.
This extension doesn't have any default commands, to prevent from clashing with your setup. Bind your own keybindings to these commands:
Skip back in footsteps. Default:
Skip forwards in footsteps. Default:
Skip back in footsteps (stay in the same file)
Skip forwards in footsteps (stay in the same file)
Skip back in footsteps (skip between files)
Skip forwards in footsteps (skip between files)
Clear all changes within file (useful when you've edited the whole file)
footsteps.doHighlightChanges setting: whether or not we are highlighting lines
