Is it possible to manipulate the editor's view directly?


What I’m trying to do is some kind of “overlay” in the editor.

For instance, let’s say I want a “git diff” overlay, so that we’ll have something like this:

We see that there’s a gap in the line 45 to 46, that is not part of the code but represents somehow that I deleted that code and substituted to the code below it (of course, I would edit the view better - this is just a GIMP edited image of my Atom’s editor right now).

Is it possible with the current API?
