Loading... please wait.
  • 1. detect if a file has been updated outside padre, and prompt user for reload/continue. major showstopper here, since git will happily overwrite files when switching branches.
    2. non intrusive search box - either same as vim, or see how firefox implemented it
    3. auto-indent & tab manipulation
    4. possibility to wrap a paragraph intelligently (what gqip is doing in vim)
    • 1. and 2.a (autoindent) are implemented in 0.15 Can you please check and explain what do you mean by tab manipulation?

      There are tickets for 3. and 4.


      • ok, it detects if file has changed when saving... but that's a bit too late imho. i'd like padre to monitor open files on a regular basis (every 10 seconds?) to warn asap, and propose to reload file / ignore changes.
        tab manipulation: ability to change all tabs to spaces. or pressing tab / shift+tab anywhere on a line indents / unindents the line. (or whatever key combination)
        • so what happens if the file changed, you get a popup and you say ignore?

          Should that stop checking till you save or reload next time?

          Should it bugger you every 10 seconds?

          Should it warn again only if the file changes again on the disk?

          Something else?

          • i'd say it warns again only if the file changes again on the disk.
            but that would be a judgement call with stop checking till save/reload.
