  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…

    • add ssl

      studio.sketchpad doesn't have SSL enabled, which is precarious for authentication with the site. Please enable SSL

      • 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? :)

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

            • Make "My Sketches" under home tab editable

              If I go to the "home" tab and click one of my sketches, it's read only. I have the option to clone and modify it, but not edit it myself. Confusing!

              You should have it use the same URL that appear under the "your sketches" tab whenever the sketch owner is the same as the logged in user.

                Sorry about the confusion. There is an “Edit Sketch” button to the left of the title of any sketch that you created, but this could be more clear. If you aren’t seeing this button on a sketch that should have it, send me the URL and I can try to debug. Thanks!

              • tab

                when multiple lines are selected and you press tab, the lines are erased ! I most IDE it indents the lines to the right (shift tab would left indent)

                  This is a limitation of the underlying Etherpad editor, which wasn’t really built for writing code. Code-specific editing functionality is currently limited, and this is an area that is ripe for improvement.

                • ios 5 contentEditable

                  IOS 5 supports contentEditable, yet the site blocks me off still. Am I wrong?

                    Thanks for the heads-up on this one. The editor does, in fact, now work in iOS5, but there are two issues remaining. Apparently scrolling doesn’t work in these contenteditable regions, which is unfortunate. Once I have a chance to sort this out, I’ll stop redirecting traffic from MobileSafari.
                    Thanks!

                  • 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

                      What if sketchpad could offer another drawing language ? ContextFree.js

                      See http://azarask.in/projects/algorithm-ink for a demo.
