Development update 1

I will try to write some every week what the progress with the IDE is and why I have taken some of the decisions. At the moment I only want to focus on a functional version that you can work in. It will have a lot of small problem that you can live with. So I focus on the bigger things. One of the critical things I fixed was the redirect if your not logged in. So you always get to the login page. Something that have bugged me a long time so feels good to finally fixed that one.

Another one that wasn’t top prio was the warning when you navigate away from a file that is modified but not saved. You just had to retype everything you done but nothing major. I now how a dialog that warns you about that. I will update the dialog with a save and continue later on, or this will be irrelevant when I start to use tabs for all the files.

Another very risky button I had was the remove project. It was removing the project without asking for confirmation. This is now fixed. Maybe I need something more so you don’t accidentally remove your project.

From the beginning I had a requirement that you needed a git repository tied to your project so you was forced to have some way to update your code. This is now dropped and you can create projects just to test something that isn’t tied to any repository.

And lastly I have finally added the change of the mode manually. This makes it possible if Codemirror can’t understand what kind of file it is, to pick the correct one your self. You do that by clicking the button on the bottom right. So for the example you see bellow the .edge file the editor don’t know what it is but then I can just change it to HTML. It would be good if you can always associate one kind of extension to a mode and you don’t need to pick it every time. But that is for the next version.

The next 7 days will be focus on search for files, so you can search for a file and open that one up in the editor. I guess I will just make a simple dialog with a search field and a few files that correspond with the search. This will need to be built on later. Then I need to have a nicer first page when you login where you can see all your recent project and status about your account. Nicer selection to create a new project. So that will be the main focus now.
