Using external Text Editor
while I write most of my code in the build text editor I catch myself using VSCode (VSCodium) more often since the global search and feature set really helps writing code.
I wanted to ask if any of you are using an external text editor successfully?
I always need to reload the preset in HISE so that it picks up any code changes and then I compile in HISE. I was wondering if it would be possible to watch file changes in HISE and automatically update them. There is the popular watchman tool that is often used for this.
Would it make sense to open up HISE to allow for text changes so that everyone can use their own text editor and basically making it more open?
@oskarsh I use the built in editor. The console, watch table, and auto-complete really help. Also it has a global search, bookmarking, outline view, etc.
@oskarsh I sometimes use Sublime but I mostly use the in-built editor. I think it's quite good and efficient.
I sometimes use an external editor (Atom) for editing sample maps, presets, and other non-script files.
I use Sublime for Hise code search and mods, and to open, scroll and pick up code from sandbox projects.
However I don't use external editor for the project itself and do everything inside Hise.
The reason is that in the past when having files opened in both Hise and external editor, if you accidentally recompile Hise it overwrites your changes in the external editor (since the files are saving on recompile)
This was before the new Hise script editor anyway so no need anymore
Hise editor is now super powerful (minus just a few minor bugs). Having the double click on the API list to insert back would be awesome.
