This Visual Studio Code extension automatically scrolls externally modified files to the end. By default, Code just reloads these files; with autoscrolldown they also scroll to the last line if certain conditions are met.
Simply enable the autoscrolldown settings in the config or run the command.
An example of how the command performs:
You'll know the feature is active when you see the "arrow-down" indicator in the status bar:
Depending on the onlyWhenAtEnd setting, sometimes it's necessary to be at the very end of the buffer for the indicator to appear and the extension to do its job.
Visual Studio Code newer than 1.19.0.
This extension contributes the following settings:
autoscrolldown.allFiles: all files scroll automatically to the end when modified externally
autoscrolldown.onlyWhenAtEnd: scrolling happens only if the cursor was already in the last position within the file
There is also one command available, useful when autoscrolldown.allFiles is turned off:
autoscrolldown: Toggle autoscroll To End For Current File
