In what is without doubt the most practical
.gif post yet, allow me to introduce Gif Player: a VS Code extension that adds a play/pause button and scrubber to any gif you open in VS Code.
Gif Player uses VS Code’s Custom Editor API to implement a feature that I wish every browser and operating system had out of the box. Rather than building this functionality into VS Code though, I thought Gif Player would be a perfect use case for Custom Editors (I am more than a tad biased since I created VS Code’s Custom Editor API).
And although Gif Player is terribly lacking in both cats and Nick Cage (a problem which I leave to the reader), the extension did at least build on code from my past
So, give it a try!
