Fix VS Code Explorer for Content Projects
The VS Code explorer displays folders at the top of a directory. This is a common hierarchy that I like it most cases.
But I hate it for content.
For content sites — like chan.dev — I prefer alphabetical order. I want to see my files and folders all mixed up together.
To change the default behavior, open Settings and find the option for
Explorer: Sort Order.
With this option enabled, files and folders are interwoven in the explorer.
On chan.dev, I have lots of markdown files.
Some of them have images.
And I want to keep those images in a folder nearby.
I ain’t tryna faff with Cloudinary, or hunt down shared
I want them right next to my post.
This makes it easy to keep my place on the file system.
