Minimap Titles

Atom package to convert the selected text to ASCII art using FIGlet and then comment it.

The chosen figlet font (ANSI Shadow) is perfect for minimap visualization. Commenting supports several file extensions:

Files with no extension will be treated as Shell scripts.

Select some text to convert something like this:

hello world

into something like this:

# ██   ██ ███████ ██      ██       ██████      ██     ██  ██████  ██████  ██      ██████  
# ██   ██ ██      ██      ██      ██    ██     ██     ██ ██    ██ ██   ██ ██      ██   ██
# ███████ █████   ██      ██      ██    ██     ██  █  ██ ██    ██ ██████  ██      ██   ██
# ██   ██ ██      ██      ██      ██    ██     ██ ███ ██ ██    ██ ██   ██ ██      ██   ██
# ██   ██ ███████ ███████ ███████  ██████       ███ ███   ██████  ██   ██ ███████ ██████

you can also Toggle Comment Borders to put a border around the text to add more distinction in the minimap:

###############################################################################
# ██   ██ ███████ ██      ██       ██████      ██     ██  ██████  ██████  ██      ██████
# ██   ██ ██      ██      ██      ██    ██     ██     ██ ██    ██ ██   ██ ██      ██   ██
# ███████ █████   ██      ██      ██    ██     ██  █  ██ ██    ██ ██████  ██      ██   ██
# ██   ██ ██      ██      ██      ██    ██     ██ ███ ██ ██    ██ ██   ██ ██      ██   ██
# ██   ██ ███████ ███████ ███████  ██████       ███ ███   ██████  ██   ██ ███████ ██████

Note that Toggle Comment Borders determines border size based on your editors preferred line length, Atom's default is 80 as shown above.

The difference is slight and completely based on user preference:

Border vs. No Border Example
