Consider supporting OpenCtx
Open, Needs TriagePublic


OpenCtx is a project from SourceGraph, described as an open standard which "allows you to see contextual info about code in your dev tools, your editor, and anywhere else you read code."

It's a tooling independent way to take rich information from one tool and embed it in context within another tool.

Some background about the project can be found over on the SourceGraph blog: @-mentions and information from your dev tools, shown everywhere you read/write code.

It seems like an interesting and useful project and it may be worth looking at ways that we could interoperate with OpenCtx tools in Phorge, both for exporting Phorge status into other tools but also for rendering embedded OpenCtx information in Diffusion and Differential views.
