Status Messenger allow you to have messages appear in your VS Code status bar from a remote server.
Connects to an arbitrary API that passes JSON object with messages, and displays them in the status bar of VS Code. The server is polled every 20 mins.
Can have an arbitrary number of messages from the same server, with the client chosing which to display at anytime.
Requires a server and API to be set up to serve JSON files to display. An example implementation can be found here.
Once you have installed the extension, set up your remote URL by running Set Remote Message URL. This will take you through the setup.
