Simulator will die, and need to reload page to jump start it. Would be nice to be able to click a button to restart simulator.
IDE / simulator doesn’t have the ability to show devicetype input preferences. Can only see this in app.
Feature Request - Code cleanup and formatting standards. Click a button and it auto indents and makes the code nice and tidy.
No find and replace within code. Broken functionality of browser search, some browsers only search what is visible.
Comments // don’t color code the same as block comments /* */ anymore.
Feature Request. Ability to quickly see the device’s events from the simulator
Feature Request: Ability to change the layout of the virtual devices. Either horizontal or a resizable tile view so I don’t have to scroll.
Bonus points for making sure they always show in the same order
Simulator should mirror current standards for mobile apps, ie displaying text the same way, ability to show external html in a tile, etc. Especially dynamic pages.
Feature Request: A easy way to go to a specific line number and make the line number in the error a click to go to that line.
Feature Request: A search across all devicetypes or smartapps.
For example, I need to find all uses of “bool” thanks to a recent platform change and then find any uses of the var == “true”
Bonus points for find AND replace
Default values for input types in preferences only work in the app, should work in simulator but doesn’t.
FYI, this bug was submitted on July 18, 2014 and still exists today.
Feature Request, show how many devices are currently using a custom device type so we know if it is in use or not.
With the risk of being too generic, may I suggest as an overall feature request that the Code Editor be something at least as richly functional as the Cloud9 online environment or similar? ie, multi-window, code completion, auto indent, search/replace, infinite undo, debugger, …
I believe that their underlying IDE is Open Source, actually.
patrick, you’re on fire.
When syntax or run time error is detected, the message should tell the actual line number. Often times it’s off.
When saving code changes while IDE error expired, it’s not obvious that the changes are lost.
Clean way of installing SmartApp via the IDE.
When viewing list of installed SmartApps, open app details in a new window rather than a popup.
Make code samples searchable.
Are you talking about SmartApps intended for permanent use?
