Having come from Sublime, one of my favorite things was that it would list my open files in the sidebar, instead of as horizontal tabs above the editor:
While theoretically the Atom devs are on board with such a feature, there hasn’t been any progress on that issue in almost a year. The closest thing I could find was tree-view-open-files, which is kind of buggy and not updated often. So I wrote a tiny little script for myself that simply moves the tab bar element into the side bar: dbkaplun/atom-tabs-in-sidebar
Right now it’s a few lines you have to add to styles.less and init.coffee, but hopefully this can be implemented as a plugin, or maybe even as an option for atom/tabs. Comments/concerns/PRs welcome. Let me know what you guys think!
