Jump List for Nova
Other editors have jump lists. Nova didn't. Until now.
This is an attempt at adding rudimentary jump list functionality, the likes of which you might have seen in (neo)vim or BBEdit. It's not perfect as the APIs to build this aren't perfect and there's more information that Nova may be leaving on the table in terms of how and why you jump around different files in a project.
