I’ve been reading the posts on using toolsclient/docsclient and my impression is that if you have one of them you basically have to keep them open at all times, taking up some valuable screen real estate. Am I understanding this correctly? Is there a way to have them hide/show on demand?
Ideally, the clients would automatically popup when there is something to show. ie. I do a
grep, which automatically uses
toolsclient, the search results popup in a separate window, either a terminal split, tab, or new window. Then I’d have a command to dismiss it when I’m done.
Does anything like this exist already? If not, how much interest is there in a tool that would do this? I already have an architecture in mind that I think would work, but want to make sure it’s worth the time and nothing exists already.
