Improve Text Editor #3
The integrated text editor improved quite a bit recently but there's still a number of features missing that are often requested and would make editing bigger projects easier.
This project is about adding more IDE style features to the OpenSCAD editor. Some of those features have already a prototype implementation so those would require review of the existing code continue from there.
Examples for useful features:
The main challenge is to select just a small number of features but implement those in a way that really improves the usage. Ideally this involves making different prototypes and including feedback from the user community.
A good start could be just running OpenSCAD with some example code that is included in the normal installation and have a look at other Tools/IDEs. Some features that would be nice to have that are present in other applications are listed above, but those are just guidelines.
