Gitpod Window (Chrome Extension)

Hope this extension can help VIM users like me. :grinning:

Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gitpod-window/jhpkbhdoenpnfnnkelgpikndadikogdl

Gitpod Window offers you a immersive IDE experience with minimal UI and shortcuts

  • This is NOT an official extension from Gitpod

The goal of this extension is to provide a improved Gitpod online IDE experience. What is does is opening a Chrome popup window with:

  • Minimal Chrome Interface (see screenshot)
  • Full Keyboard Shortcuts (incl. Ctrl-W, Ctrl-N, Ctrl-T and more)

Would be really nice if this would be added to the official Gitpod plugin.

Amazing man! Congrats. :grinning:

@jeromewu This looks incredible! Iā€™m a chrome os user and Iā€™d love to use this extension but unfortunately, launching a workspace opens a new tab in the browser, not the extension.

Hey @erasmuswill, with the new dashboard changes, new workspaces should open within the same tab, right?

Aha! That actually works nicely now! Thank you!
