Code Editor

Post by emre » May 3rd, 2017, 10:18 pm

I really like the Mojo3 board, it's my first foray into the world of FPGA programming. The board is great and fun to program and the quick scripts in the IDE to build etc are great help. However, the IDE's code editing window is a nightmare. There isn't even a search and replace functionality... or anything else I would expect from even a bare text editor. Why do you bother making your own code editor tool when there are awesome alternatives, like Sublime, Atom, Notepad++ etc? You could just make a plugin for these other IDEs, package the build tool component as an executable.

Sometimes I find myself copying the entire program into sublime text, making edits there, and pasting it back to the Mojo IDE to make some edits that take seconds in sublime but are a hassle in Mojo IDE...
