On the Executing Shell Commands https://github.com/scripted-editor/scripted/wiki/Executing-Shell-Commands page there is a screenshot of a console which looks like it has a command input box. I want this.

  1. I have no input box when I open the console - just white nothingness
  2. When I run an exec command (e.g. afterSave) I get an input box looking thingy which doesn't take any input because it's a div (<div class="command">dir</div>)

I agree, it seems like logical next step to add a place where you can type commands to execute.

In terms of UI design, a somewhat open question before we can do this is, what directory does the command execute in? Similarly: do we need some UI widgetry to display and change the working directory? What should this look like?

For on-save and exec-keys commands specified in .scripted, the .scripted file specifies the working dir for each command. So we need something similar for commands typed into the textbox.
