Trouble with creating popup list in current editor


I’m working on a simple plugin that converts numbers between different bases (I got sick of converting binary to hex with online converters). I have the conversion working, but I’d like to add a small popup list that the user can scroll or arrow through to select which base they’d like to convert to. I’ve poked around a bit, but the resources I was able to find about using Atom Views has been sparse and/or confusing. Do I use space-pen-views? Do I subclass HTMLElement? What is the current best way to work with views while making Atom packages?

Thank you, and let me know if you need more information.

Edit: A little more Googling turned up this post from February. I’m guessing it still holds true?


Yes, that would be the correct topic. Please continue the discussion there.
