Hi Justin,

Sometimes lately the text in the editor is on a white background with dark text, and then at some point changes to white on dark background. Can't see any pattern as to when is happens. Is this a new feature :-)

I've seen this very occasionally as well, and I think I have a fix for it. I'll push 0.3.4 out this afternoon with a couple more fixes.

Thanks for all your work so far. The editor color would be a nice feature if you could select it in the preferences. However the surprise coloring is kind of fun :-)

I second the "Thanks" - this is amazing progress, keep up the great work!

I don't think it's closed it's happen sometimes to me (GNU/Linux Ubuntu 12.02.2 LTS + Chromium)
And WebIDE is 0.3.6 (BTW does it update auomatically?)

This issue still happens sporadically. I haven't found a solution as of yet. As for updating, you'll see a link within the WebIDE if there is an update available (in the upper right corner).

I still get this in v0.3.8.


Btw,which is the correct one? I really think white is easier on the eyes.

The dark background with the light text is supposed to be the default. For some reason, I still haven't been able to figure out why this one happens yet. If you refresh, it typically fixes itself. In the future, it might be nice to have a few different themes so you can choose a light or dark background.

On my computer, the cursor is hard to see when using the black background, so I vote for white background or settable option. Amazing tool by the way, i LOVE it!
