I tried it out and this is great! Thanks for making it available.

I did notice that when I click on repository on ASPECT - Visual Studio Marketplace, I get a 404 page from gitlab. Is it a private repository?

All right, I have make it public. Please have a try.

Thanks! I still get a 404 page when I click the link on visual studio market place, but I have been able to find it by searching on gitlab.

The repository link on visual studio market place links to instead of Vscode extensions / vscode-aspect · GitLab. Can you fix the link?

Thanks, it’s really neat :slight_smile:
The link of the repository is indeed going to vscode-gmt-pro, but clicking on the “bug report” button bring me to the correct Issues · Vscode extensions / vscode-aspect · GitLab

Thank you for reporting this issue, I forget change the repository url in the extension home page. Now it is updated (v1.0.2) and corrected to a right url.
