What's on your VS Code home screen?



The first visual you see when you open a new window

Is it high in information density or sparse and 🧘 zen? Educational, fully of entertainment, strictly work related, or possibly all of the above? What gets us into the zone 🎧 and helps unwind after a long stretch of coding?

Give Marquee a spin - let us know what you think 🀩

These and many other questions led us to πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨ design Marquee. We intentionally decided to leave options open. As with many other aspects in life, there's no one πŸ₯‡ home screen to rule them all. Marquee strives to be as functional as it is customizable to make working inside VS Code more productive 🦾 for you. Above all, we want you to take the 🚘 driver's seat.

😝 Love procrastination and zeitgeist?

Me too! Go with the mini forecast and all news.

Mini forecast & all news

πŸ™ˆ Rather stay hyper-focused because your susceptible to distractions?

Turn on todos and the scratchpad. No weather and definitely no news!

Hyper-focus with no entertainment

🌡 Love the outdoors and can't wait to go outside?

Wrapping up work before enjoying nature? Totally fair, that beautiful sonoran desert. Maximize the background image and keep tabs on the weather.


πŸ™‹ What does your heart desire?

Show us your home screen and for sure let us know πŸ“¨ if there is anything else your developer heart desires. Be sure to install Marquee so you can keep Xzibit and us posted on your home screen customizations. We'd love πŸ’š to hear from you. Just click the "Give Feedback" button, hit us up on twitter or an email. Also, checkout Runme (transform READMEs into runnable notebooks) πŸ‘‹
