Enjoying some Summer yet?
It is a rare pleasure to have you visit… thank for your reply.
My skills as PLC coder for industrial machine automations carries no weight here. I am reduced to a commentator and observer. The efforts of yourself and other maintainers are respected and appreciated.
What sours the milk for my own user experience on Windows machines is the fact that the terminals (like yours) does not work out of the box. With Atom V1.16 (?) terminals could install without issue. Above Atom V1.19 this was not the case anymore. Windows 7 and Windows 10.
The procedure to have it work has been mentioned earlier in this topic. It did work on Windows 7 before for me.
It would make me happy if someone could come up with a package that does not require me to collect a bunch of compile tools first. Sadly I have nothing to bring to the party when it comes to a viable solution suggestion.
The Atom developers will include a terminal into the core IMHO. There is no way around it with the push for “IDE” functionality. I only hope that the problems I have in Windows becomes history.
@Fred-Barkley, it is my hope that the coming terminal is done in such a modular way, that the fine efforts from yourself can be incorporated in its design. I hope the Atom developers do approach you (and others) to give some creative input.
Some API features would also be welcome. Imagine having some context shortcuts to execute code within the terminal, handling multiple grammars as the
script package does.
It was good to chat with you.
C-ya later mate.
