Temporarily expand a pane for focus


#1

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!


#2

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
