    So, this is very cool! Browsing a TF repo in VS Code and running
    infracost breakdown --terraform-parse-hcl
    from a terminal inside it to get costs output in a very short time. I was wondering what the ideas were for further VS integration? Brainstorming a bit: • Hit F5 to run the breakdown? • Run breakdown on save and display the results in a tab? • Integrate with Visual Studio (as opposed to VSCode)? (Not sure how much value there is in this exactly, but I thought at first from the blogpost that's what this was.) • Have a side panel (mockup pictured) which showed you the bottom line, updating whenever you saved or browsed the git history?

    🎉 nice! At the moment we don’t really have any “concrete” ideas for the code editor integration, but I’m really liking the idea of a side panel to provide realtime feedback
    I know @User has some thoughts on how an integration could work

    One thought I had was if it’s possible a metadata above each resource/module in the HCL. For example how “0 references” is shown here:

    I thought to experiment with LSP, but haven't had a chance yet

    I don’t think it would be too difficult to update the HCL parsing to add files and line numbers as metadata to each resource. Am I right Hugo?

    should be fine
    we already do this a bit to add
    id
    and
    arn
    attributes to resources
    it’s essentially the same process

    https://code.visualstudio.com/api/references/vscode-api#CodeLens the codelens api for vscode makes it trivial

    I dont know enough about infracost internals but it would be good if you didn't have to run a breakdown to get the costs and instead it just imputed the costs for each resource on declaration, get it could be a bit heavy though..
