Lots of cool stuff for Markdown authors in April’s VS Code release. Namely:
- drag and drop files into the editor to create a Markdown link
- find all references to header|links|files|urls inside of Markdown
- rename headers|links inside Markdown (and propagate the changes)
- rename Markdown files (and propagate to all references)
VS Code, and IDEs more broadly, help developers manage large code bases by making available tools to leverage and manipulate the syntax of programming languages. By shifting some of this tooling to markdown, can we do the same for large Markdown repositories?
