  • This is my first time playing, so far it seems like a very good start. All the basics are covered and didn't stumble in to anything that would completely stop me from getting work done if this was my only option. That said though there are some things that I find missing when compaired with my current editor of choice (vim + perl-support.vim).

    On to the issues, there might be some historical reasons for some decisions that I've missed but here are my thoughts:

    • [install]
      • the ubuntu method described fails post install (Failed to find share dir for dist 'Padre' at /usr/share/perl5/Padre/ line 220), an update via CPAN fixed that.
    • [trac]
      • it would be nice to allow anon issue reporting, if I can avoid creating a new account just to report a bug (or allow the use of CPAN's RT).
    • [editor]
      • change font size seems backwards ( '+' decreases, '-' increases).
      • I'll second the .pl restriction as annoying, I just expected the 'run' to just do `perl $file`.
      • for 'run', any shorthand for 'path of current buffer', so that we could at least sidestep the .pl restriction?
      • with perl-support.vim you gain the ability to have little snippits of code that are only a hotkey away, any plans for this kind of feature?
      • expected Ctrl+t to open new tab and Ctrl+n to open new window.
      • it seems that there is no option for line-wrapping.
      • I noticed a bunch of requests for vi key bindings, it would be nice if there was an binding editor that would allow us to 'write our own'.
      • did not see an option for setting tabs => X spaces.

    I'll keep playing and see if there's anything else that I can come up with, other then that though it seems like a great editor in the making.

    • Thanks for your reply.

      some of these already have tickets, for others I opened now.

      tabs => X spaces is in Edit/Preferences
      change font size fixed but I think only after 0.15 came out
      Ctrl+t Ctrl+n swapped, but I think we'll change it back and then give you the option to change it as you want.
      You are welcome on #padre or send an e-mail if you really don't want to create an account.
