I often find myself scrolling up in a code file to see which context I am in (class/method definition, yaml-key, etc). It would be super handy if I could somehow "freeze" the last lines of each indentation level that's lower than the last currently visible line.
class X: def a(): # ... def b(): # ... def some_local_function(): # lots of code # ---- this is last line visible in the buffer/window # more visible code
In this case I would like the window to look like this:
class X: def b(): def some_local_function(): # some demarcation to indicate the lines above are separate from those below # ---- this is last line visible in the window # more visible code
Is there already a way to do this? If not, how would I go about implementing it?
