Feature request: Enable heatmap by default when each file is opened #289
I like the un-obtrusive nature of the heatmap.
Would it be possible to create a settings which when set, enable heat map on each opened file? Currently it is only on-demand and per file.
The next GitLens release will add support for controlling how annotations are toggled — for each file individually or for all files at once
As for supporting the heatmap on the scrollbar, I don't feel like that would work out well, because the scrollbar doesn't really give you a 1-to-1 mapping to individual lines. So it would be hard to really tell the age of a line other than the current one.
I agree with your point that the heatmap on the scrollbar will not show a 1-to-1 mapping to individual lines. so it cannot replace the heatmap on left. However it can give me a summary for the whole file at a glance. So could it be a good feature addition?
