Hugo preview panel for VSCode, inspired by the convenience of built-in Markdown preview

I am excited to share a new VSCode extension.

I wanted a preview showing side by side with the source code.

People often rely on built in Markdown preview in VSCode. I wanted to see my content exactly as rendered by Hugo. It is easier to ensure that I am happy with the output this way,

I use rendered version for proof-reading and revising my prose. I often see issues in the rendered version, and I need to navigate to the matching position in the source code. With this extension it takes a single click on the rendered text fragment you don’t like to get positioned in the source code accordingly.


New release: clicks on links with target=_blank in preview panel were silently ignored due to sandbox settings. The new version detects an attempt to follow such link and opens the page in system browser.
