  1. Tablet (Touch UI) Support

    Right now it is not possible to open files for editing from the navigation frame by touch gestures in any browser for iPad or Galaxy tablets. This is a big roadblock to using a tablet for development and perhaps the only show stopper from getting this IDE immensely popular as a true cloud IDE that is cross device.

    Something similar to a touch double click support to open files for editing as we expand the navigation tree, can be a simple enhancement that can go a long way.

      Hi Everyone: We have tested Codenvy with the Puffin Web Browser on Android and Ipad, and it works in most scenarios. They provide a track pad that allows for right click of objects and the display is quite good.

    • Gradle Project Support

      Add Gradle project support with classpath scanning, code completion and all the IDE features like Maven Support.

        Hi all… we have started on a Gradle extension for Codenvy which will bring project type, builder, and customization of gradle into the system. We expect it will be part of the 4.0 launch a bit later this year.

      • Editor Color Themes

        Multiple color themes for editor background and text.

              • Add Dropbox Integration

                It would be fantastic to have integration with Dropbox as a data store.

                For me, this would provide the convenience of being able to edit code from my Linux workstation and my Android tablet, where Dropbox is well-supported on both, but Git is barely functional on the latter.

                This could also be beneficial to those who use Dropbox as a simple hosting platform (for static content), and could leverage the range of apps that integrate with Dropbox to do useful things (ifttt.com has some interesting examples of coupling Dropbox with other services).

                Dropbox API Documentation: https://www.dropbox.com/developers

                • Better GIT GUI

                  Honestly, I can't figure out how to use Codenvy's menu-based git implementation. I guess I'm spoiled using Tower, and being able to actually see the git repo that lives on each environment. I use Heroku, so git push is how I update my github repo, and deploy to stage and prod.

                  The main thing I do before I push to say, the stage remote (in order to deploy to it), is look at the commit history on stage, look at the commit history on my local repo, and do a basic visual comparison to make sure I know exactly what's…

                    Thank you, Erik for the thoughtful writeup and the visuals to emphasize the capabilities. We are undertaking a bit of a UI refresh with Codenvy and the git plug-in is getting updated. I think we can incorporate some of these enhancements. We need to give some thought around how to show commit histories and full listing of all remotes that you have access to.

                    • Let users change how many spaces in a tab.

                      Some people prefer 2 spaces per tab, some prefer 4, so an option to change this would be useful.

                          C# is a great language with plenty of support in the industry. I think it would fit very well inside the Codenvy platform.

                            • real time update web sources

                              Each time I update a source file I must restart the app to review the changes, which is a very bad experience that only Java programmers suffer without Codenvy.

                              This is a huge pull factor that discourages people from using this neat web IDE.

                              • Redeployment of java web applications to active runners

                                By means of running a java ee web application, the corresponding server starts and the application is deployed. Now, you can use the web application. Unfortunatelly, it is not possible to redeploy the application to the running server, easily (e.g. after you made some changes to the code). The only way is to stop the server and to run the project again which is very time consuming.

                                We need either a possiblility to redeploy the application manually (e.g. by explicitly starting a build and a redeployment using a menu item) or automatically (e.g. the build and deploy process is started…

                                • Support for running local commands for code generation

                                  The ability to be able to setup local commands/scripts to generate code or otherwise manipulate the project. For a Rails app it would mean having the ability to run rails and rake commands. If shell access is not an option then being able to setup simple commands to run like runner scripts would be great.

                                    We are working on bi-directional editing within runners / builders, and this will provide the ability to do local commands in a runner that does code generation. We don’t have an ETA, but are hoping Q1 of 2015. We have 3 engineers on this full time now.

                                      I'm using Codenvy on the train. It bounces. The connection comes and goes. Sometimes I am not entirely certain of the state of my file relative to the last-committed version. A diff-against-last function would be HUGELY useful for Codenvy specifically

                                          With the announced partnership between Microsoft and Docker, the technical feasibility of adding a .NET developer environment to Codenvy is increased. We will begin researching this combination once the MS + Docker capabilities are released.

                                          Often the project consists of an application folder as well as other folders for art work, etc. It should possible to configure the location of the application.
