You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. prettify code and/or autoindent closing brace

    THe processing IDE has a nice ctrl-t "line everything up". If that's too much, I guess most of the "auto tabbing" editors I use know to unindent one when I type }...

      I agree that both ideas would definitely improve the editor. I’ll take a look at which would be easier to implement, and put that on my list. Much room for improvement in the editor right now…

        • make giving feedback to sketch authors easy and prominent

          Looking for a way to share my compliments to the sketch authors/programmers but can't find it easily. If there is a way, then make it easy. If there isn't a way to leave comments, then provide one. thanks

          • integration to Github for sketch

            The idea is simple, just a button to commit to a github account the sketch either in a existing repository or creating a new one. I think should be possible to use github Api

            • Use cleaner URLs

              Shorter URLs would be nice to send around. For example I find this quite long:
              http://studio.sketchpad.cc/sp/pad/view/dZJkbh0jLQ/latest
              Can't we have
              http://sketchpad.cc/dZJkbh0jLQ instead? :)

              • Search a sketch by name

                I can't find where to search for a Sketch? I remember one I saw at random last day and now I have to browse the entire 700+ list to find it.

                A search sketch by name would be very handy!

                  • create a keyboard shortcut for taking a screenshot.

                    Mousing over to the screenshot icon (which is super helpful btw!!!) doesn't work for some sketches. A keyboard shortcut to take this snapshot would be awesome!!!

                    Thanks for all your hard work!!! This is a wonderful teaching tool!!!

                    • Server Reliabilty

                      The server's performance has been iffy during peak times, and need improvement before other features are focused on.

                      • Claim my sketch

                        When collaborating on a sketch without being logged in, it somehow identifies it's always me coming back. Then, when I log in, sketchpad thinks it's another me, somehow!

                        In my case, it's no big deal: http://studio.sketchpad.cc/sp/pad/view/ZoErZJxyOp/rev.877

                        So, currently, if you're going to author some sketch, be sure to be logged in first!

                        • Make the editor more easily compatible with mobile devices

                          Because the editor is in javascript, it will run on many mobile devices. Formatting the editor for a mobile format could be beneficial for easily adding quick code when it occurs to you, and not having to wait until you get back to your computer to add something to your sketch.

                          • It says "Processing is not defined"

                            It's not working on a Chromebook but the account will work on a regular laptop. It says "Processing is not defined" when you try to render a sketch.

                                I'm using this in a classroom, and it would be nice if I could add my peers or my teacher to my friends list so I could share my work with them and see what work they've been doing.

                                  Github master has many serious bugs fixed. For example ArrayList of the current version is completely broken, but is already fixed on git.

                                  • Option to make individual sketches private or semi-private

                                    As a classroom instructor a private studio is great for teaching, but every student can see everyone's work (which in some situations is not ideal).

                                    I would like the ability to mark individual sketches for complete privacy, or shared only with the instructor. This would allow students to collaborate during lessons, and submit individual assignments or homework pieces to the instructor.

                                      • rollbacks should show if it compiled or not :-)

                                        browsing old rollbacks, it would be nice if there was a visual indicator that indicated if it actually ran...

                                          Definitely. My plan was to show a screenshot of each revision, but maybe just a thumbs-up for success is all that’s really necessary. Either way, I’d like to make immediately obvious at which point a sketch stopped working as expected.

                                          Although I don't know the specifics of Etherpad, this would hopefully be a fairly simple text transformation:

                                          For each line in the selection, add '//'. Unless every line in the selection starts with '//', then remove the first '//' from each line.

                                          Hope this is possible, as quickly commenting/uncommenting blocks makes messing around way easier... :)
