Folding code, comments and other contentλ︎

Code folding is very useful for hiding different levels of detail, for example you could hide everything but the function names in a namespace, showing just the API for that namespace.

Comments and documentation can be folded to help you focus on a specific part of the content.

Keybinding Description
z a toggle fold of code, comment, section, etc.
z c close fold
