Re: grouping and labeling workspaces?

When I have a lot of projects going concurrently, I try to set up

Is there a way to group the workspaces and have the workspace
emphasize workspaces in the group that I'm currently interested in?

Is there also a way to put labels on the workspaces in the switcher,
to colour-code them, e.g. blue for one project and gray for another

In window managers with a grid-shaped workspace switcher, a crude
workaround to this problem involves using a different row in the grid
for each project.  As the GNOME 3 shell displays all the workspaces
in a
single column, that isn't possible.


You probably need to look into extensions for that kind of

A quick search finds extensions for creating a grid of workspaces, and
labels, but I don't think there's anything for grouping several
workspaces together.
