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 :slight_smile:

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 :smile:

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.

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.

Are you talking about SmartApps intended for permanent use?

Any sensible way to manage devices and apps in the IDE would be amazing!

We’re basically moving towards this. I’m just trying to get a feel for which features are the most desired so we can focus on those first.

Haven’t we done this recently?

I think it was a little bit ago. I wanted to get the latest issues since I’m working on this now.
