Plugin highlight: TabFolder adds folder to editor tabs

Has it occurred to you that you open several base.html templates at once and the tabs showing only file name do not really help to say which is which?

Wouldn’t it be nicer to see a folder name near the base.html?
Yes, and PyCharm 2.0 will do exactly this.

But for now, there’s a plugin for that!

A new ‘TabFolder’ plugin created by Alexei Orishchenko was submitted to the plugin repository recently. It adds the folder name to the tab if there are multiple files with such name inside the project.

To install the plugin open IDE Settings | Plugins, find the TabFolder plugin and choose Install.
