I’ve been trolling the docs and packages to no avail. Might be that ‘vim’, ‘split’ and ‘tabs’ are just too common that I couldn’t see what’s staring right at my face!
For working on related files, I’d like to have a set of tabs where each one has a independent set of panes/files.
For example, a three tab session:
Tab 1 is two panes, split vertically. Left pane is
controller_author.js and the right pane is
Tab 2 is two panes, split vertically. Left pane is
controller_book.js and the right pane is
Tab 3 is 3 panes, split both ways. Left pane is
site-global.scss and right is split horizontally with
site-mixins.scss on the bottom
cmd + 1 to go to Tab 1, both ‘author’ related files/panes should appear and take over atom.
cmd + 2 for the ‘book’ panes and
cmd + 3 would bring up the style panes.
Just found an old post seeking the same so I’m guessing atom just isn’t wired this way. If that’s true, can anyone suggest another way I might go about this? Was thinking that synchronized tab switching might almost work (if a bit of a boar to set up). So, something like
cmd-alt-1 would switch to the first tab in all panes…
I realize I may very well just stuck in my old ways! Totally digging my last month or so with atom and I’m absolutely open to new ways to approach related-file editing.
