[Feature] VS Code like code outline view using tree-sitter plugins

See original GitHub issue

Hi. I regularly explore code in github. It would be awesome if we could show a code outline view like vs code outline-view We can use web-tree-sitter along with tree-sitter-grammars for different extensions.


  • Easy to navigate code-bases and also long markdown files.
  • Downloading tree-sitter-grammars (wasm files) dynamically for each extension the user has visited.
  • Web workers + WASM based parser to avoid slowdown.
  • The outline view can be put below the original file-tree in an accordion. Similar to how VS Code does in its sidebar.

I can help you guys with this feature. I have good experience with tree-sitter

The outline of markdown is on the right side.

I checked both the extensions. First one does serve the purpose of code-folding. Second one is kinda doesn’t give me outline view for markdown though.

you mind if I fork this repo and maintain my own extension. Loading too many extensions is not something I prefer though.
