Mark Files is a cute vscode extension that enables to mark files in the file explorer.
The extension allows you to mark/unmark files by:
Providing a scope.txt file in the workspace root folder. The file contains a list of patterns for files to include in the scope. The patterns are written using the .gitignore format, e.g., **.sol to include all Solidity files in all directories.
Selecting a single/multiple files/folders in the explorer and clicking on Mark/Unmark File from the context menu.
Right clicking on an editor tab and selecting Mark/Unmark File from the context menu.
Note that the marked files are stored in the workspace local storage. In case of mulit-root workspaces, if you don't save the workspace, the marks will be discarded if the workspace is closed. You can also export the marked files to a file on disk by invoking the Export maked files to a file command. For multi-root workspaces, marked files will be exported to individual files located at the root of each opened foler. Marked files exported to disk can be re-imported by naming the export file as scope.txt, and using the import feature.
