LGScratchpad is a Visual Studio Code extension that provides a quick and convenient way to open a user-defined Jupyter Notebook file, referred to as the "scratchpad", directly from the editor's status bar. The scratchpad file is intended to be used for taking quick notes, experimenting with code, or keeping track of useful snippets.
✏️ Adds a "Scratchpad" item to the status bar.
📒 Clicking the status bar item opens the user-defined scratchpad file in the Jupyter Notebook viewer.
📁 Allows users to select their preferred scratchpad file through a file selection dialog.
✨ Stores the scratchpad file path as a setting for future use.
Install the LGScratchpad extension in Visual Studio Code.
Ensure the Jupyter extension is installed and enabled.
Click the "Scratchpad" item in the status bar.
If it's your first time using the extension, a file selection dialog will appear. Select your preferred Jupyter Notebook file to use as the scratchpad.
