    Feedback: Visual Studio Code Extension


      Hey guys,

      your Visual Studio Code extension is really cool. I love working with it. But I'd like to see the following features in future, I guess not everything can be done but here's my wishlist.


      • Intellisense on "shortNames" - makes joining and quering much easier
        • Select e.col1 from table1 e where e.col2 ='foo'; --e does not have intellisense
      • Setting the default "GridExport" to Json (maybe as a user setting)
      • We are deploying our sql files to production via SQL Plus
      • Building and debugging packages
        • Haven't get it working - would be great if you could intregrate Visual Studio Code Breakpoints to debug package bodies
      • Inspecting a Table / Object via Visual Studio Code GUI
        • It would be great if I could "double click" on a table in my query and get a grafical feedback about the whole table, so I could get an idea which coulumns must be set, or which ones are unique..
          • Columns
          • Triggers
          • Indexes
          • ..
      • Server Explorer (This is already annouced by you guys )
      • Graphical Database diagramms by just selecting one or more Tables (maybe you could use plantumls integration in VSCode for that)
      • Communication via github as you do for the docker-images or entity framework core
      • Really great would be an port this extention to Azure Data Studio as well


      I hope I could give you an rough idea, about the features I'd like to see.


      In general I must say I love your extension and Visual Studio Code is now my favorite IDE to do oracle related stuff. Especially Queries, Tables and Views. And I hope that you extend this cool tool.
