I’m the developer of zentabs which come with the ability to pin tabs so they don’t get closed automatically.
One of the caveat of this plugin tab pinning implementation is that it’s restricted to the plugin and commands such as
close-all-tabs don’t take
pinned status into account, as user noticed.
The only way of fixing that is by implementing the pin tab feature right into the
tabs core plugin.
The TL;DR feature description is that all closing commands affecting several tabs (
close-tabs-to-right, …) won’t affect pinned ones. Single tab closing command (
close-tab), will close it anyway (not need to unpin first).
The good news is that I’ve done it and it’s waiting for review.
Here is a demo:
It’s a little bit opinionated as I have chosen to add some styling (title is bold +
lock icon is shown, overriding any existing icon) but I’d like to have your opinions on this.
Waiting for your comments!
