Temporarily expand a pane for focus


I have not found this feature builtin or via a package. in order to achieve this effect, i found myself often closing multiple tabs in a pane just to get rid of everything except for the intended pane.

any suggestions or pointers to relevant atom API to realize this would be much appreciated!


If you do mean expanding a pane (instead of a tab), then one of the featured packages right now is the hey-pane package. If, however, you do mean to close all other tabs, then you want the “Tabs: Close Other Tabs” or “Pane: Close Other Items” command.


thanks! after searching for the suggested package, i found one even more specific to my request: https://atom.io/packages/maximize-panes
