Hello. My name is Brad Marsh. Recently I joined the SmartThings team with the purpose of improving the SmartThings development tools.
Already we’ve been reviewing and prioritizing many of suggestions you’ve posted here concerning the IDE. Soon you’ll be seeing the implementation of some of them.
We’re hoping to make the improvement of the IDE a continual group effort, and with that in mind we will be posting screenshots and update notices to these forums in advance of any major changes. Your feedback on these posts will be instrumental in making the process of developing SmartApps and Devices as simple and efficient as possible.
In the mean time, if anyone has any ideas that they’ve been holding onto and haven’t posted in the forums yet, please respond here and we’ll take them into consideration.
