Fold comments of different programming languages
Submitted by caracho on Friday, 21 November, 2008 - 22:40
Hello:

It will help to legibility (clean code) to have a macro or plug in, that folded (or hided) the comments.

It is good to have an inline documentation, but sometimes it grows too much that hides the code.

I've tried to use SearchAndReplace, Fold and other commands but I don't know how to get the line where a comment begins (e.g. # for Python, ' for Visual Basic, // for Java)

Thanks and regards, caracho

If you want comments to disappear, you could make the comment text match your background and the comments would effectively disappear. If you used plugin "Editor Scheme Selector" you could easily switch between a "Scheme" that hides comments ( by the awesome match-background color hack Smiling ) and then switch to a scheme that doesn't hide comments.
