I trying to run a vscode plugin on theia and I also want the vscode extension to run as stand alone web application. So i wanted to know how can I hide the right side, bottom panel and the toolbar. The ultimate goal is to have the vscode extension.

the vscode extension to run as stand alone web application
sorry, did not get it
to hide the left side panel you need Theia extension, there is ApplicationShell object on it you can call collapsePanel('left')

So let me rephrase it i have a vscode plugin and wanted it to run on Theia IDE. So i used the steps mentioned in the following link to install the vscode plugin in Theia IDE.
So here I basically want the vscode plugin to run as a browser application. Which means that i don't want the right side panel, bottom panel and toolbar. the application only must consist of a full screen vscode plugin with left side panel to access the folders. ( Sorry for the wrong question earlier )
So my current screen looks like this, its also having top,right,bottom,left panels and also the tab in which the vscode plugin is opened.
My goal is to have something like this. With no top,right,bottom,left panels and also i don't want the tab to be displayed in which the application is running. I hope this pictures help.
you will need to customize ApplicationShell and StausBar with a custom theia extenison to remove everything

Do i have to comment out the code in ApplicationShell and StatusBar. And how do i know which part of the code to customize. I'm fairly new to Theia, can you please provide an explanation (steps) of what should be done exactly.
I have created the theia hello extension but when i was trying to change the name of Say Hello i was unable to do that. How can I Change the name of the Say Hello?, How can I check instantly the changes that i have made to the theia hello extension?. Thank you so much for answering previous question. I'm kind of stuck on this issue.
For checking the changes i have made i'm
yarn preparefor browser-app and
yarn buildfor hello-extension. But nothing seems to help, even the change of name of
Say Hellodoesn't seems to reflect.
you need to make sure to successfully build your custom extension, and the
electron-appto see the changes. Only building the custom extension is insufficient as the
electron-app) will not pick up the updates.
You may also choose to use the
watchworkflow if you prefer.
