When your documents get really long, it can be hard to see what's happening with your content, so Atom has a unique way of dealing with this that allows you to minimize content into groups.
- [Instructor] One of the problems…when working with large documents…is that there is often a lot of encapsulation…that happens naturally as you program,…so you tend to put things inside other things…and in things like HTML, for example,…this can be all of these different tags…that are inside the head tag…and then you have a body section…and that has a header…and as you keep on indenting things inside other things,…it can get really hard to get to the places…where you need to go.…So, Atom has a feature called folding…that can help you with that…as you navigate through a document.…
So, if you use the command palette,…you can look for that under folding…and take a look at all the options,…so the options are to fold everything,…not necessarily the greatest thing,…fold selection, fold current row et cetera, et cetera.…Now, you can fold directly by using the gutter right here.…You can see that when I put my mouse…between the line numbers and the text,…I see these little triangles next to each one of the lines,…so if I wanted to collapse this entire header,…
