Hi! does not unfurl on Slack.
just wanted to share in case this is not something you are already aware.
Hi Augusto :) thanks for letting us know! Really kind. Just to confirm, are you referring to the URL preview? If so, when you share other URL’s, I assume they preview normally?
Yep sorry i wasn't clear. See for example how does have a preview.
Got it! Thanks again. We’ll look into this :)
Let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to point out about the extension. I hope you’re finding it useful !

Hi 👋. The issue with the URL preview should be fixed now. Not a game changer, I'm sure, but just letting you know 😊 Thanks again for reporting it.

Hi, is there a way of logging tech debt (more specifically: design debt) based on TODO comments? So far it is only recognizing function complexity which isn't too helpful to us.

Hey 👋 thanks for getting in touch, I've replied on our feature request board

Hello Stepsize !
I was looking for a Debt Tracker Software and i ran into your plugin. I must admit it looks really appealing and i will definitively install it (Big up for the team btw) ! :)
I want to implement this in my team workflow, unfortunately, a part of team is working on IntelliJ IDEA. Do you plan to make the plugin on this IDE too ?

Hey , we're working on an update to empower engineering teams to track & discuss design debt (although it's not based on TODO comments). I'd love to hear your thoughts on it if you have a moment 😄 Feel free to DM me
Hey , thanks for getting in touch and for the kind words 😊
We're not currently working on supporting other editors / IDEs, however we are trying to make the tool more useful to teams and help them identify, discuss, and prioritise technical debt in a more powerful way. Would you have a moment to tell me more about your team's needs? It'd be really helpful for me to understand them better, and I can also run our current work in progress by you to refine our direction 😄 Let me know and feel free to DM me ✌️
Hi would love to see what ideas you came up with.

February 5, 2020 at 12:56pm
Hello , Thank your reply !
I will check a bit how the plugin is working and will discuss it with my team and i will come back at you to talk about it !
Sounds great , thanks 🙌

Hey! I am quite confident with this extension / tool although I'll be waiting for multiple git support
Hey ! Thanks for reaching out 😄Could you clarify what you mean by multiple git support please? I'm not sure I get it 🙏

One of the stepsize tools installed a git post commit hook that reminds me to check for technical debt. Was that the VSCode extension? Is there any way to turn that off?
Hi (michael-hagar) 👋. Yes, that came with the VSCode extension at one point. You can disable this behaviour in the extension settings (search for stepsize commit hook), and find existing hooks in the .git/hooks/post-commit file of your repos if you'd like to remove the file completely. Please let me know if I can help with anything else 🙂
