Available in the Visual Studio Marketplace
Swissknife is the developers' toolbox. It provides a set of features (we call them scripts) to convert data in the editor, like converting to hex, base64 or to generate new data like current timestamps or random strings, etc.
Some of the available scripts
You can invoke the dedicated command pallete with
The conversions will only use the selected text by default. If no text is selected the entire content of the editor will be used. It supports multi selection and will run the script for each selection individually
You can now add notes per line to your code. Since this feature changes a bit the gutter and you start to see a plus sign on the left of the line numbers on the line you hover the mouse, we ship this feature disabled by default and can be enabled per workspace.
Use the command
You can also generate a report of all notes in the project by using the command
To view the existing notes you'll see a new tab in the bottom pannel called
File Explorer Decorators
You can use decorators to identify files in the explorer. You can create custom decorators and guess what... Emojis are allowed 😁. You can copy them from here.
Due to a limitation in vscode extension system AFAIK I can't allow users to extend the menu with their own decorators, so you always need to go through the "Custom" option to use other decorators.
In the explorer section you'll also have a new section to view all the files decorated with this extension
Just select the code you want to create a screenshot from (or don't select anything and the entire code will be used) and search for the
The filename in the screenshot window is taken from the current file name, and if the file is not saved a temporary name will be used. The file name is editable, so when the right panel appears you can change the name, if you want :)
The outcome of the operation may return multiple values, as a hashes from different algorithms have the same output format. Still we organize the hashes from top down by most relevant.
The servers log all requests received into the "Output" window of VSCode (You can show it by going to view -> Output in the menu). Then on the right of the window (where usually has the value "Tasks"), filter by "Swissknife Server"
You can quite easily create your own scripts, without the need to dig through the code of the extension. Just create a file and drop it in the "Scripts" folder.
