Now that i’m using much more of what PJ has to offer in anger - such as live-compilation via the JIT engine and viewing and debugging components via JIT - I find myself often asking If I should I add/change this code in the PROJUCER editor or switch to XCode and do it there?.
There’s a lot of command-tabs.
There are of course several things that keep one going back to PJ - to add new source files, debugging-viewing components on the fly using PJ and the JIT. And of course the layout editor if one is [gasp] still using that.
It would be nice to be able to stay more and more just in PJ - using the basic but functional C++ editor there. But clearly there are lots of lacking features one gets in XCode - commenting/uncommenting blocks of code seems to be one I often miss - and end up switching to XCode… and so on. Plus of course refactoring and advanced search.
So there seems to be this nagging question of whether PROJUCER will ever be “grown” to become a "Just-good -enough IDE ( ie primarily for editing C++ source files ) - to do the majority of one’s coding. Of course i’m not expecting any more in terms of targets,build etc - that is fine to stay in XCode, VS etc.
But as far as daily coding goes - adding classes, source files etc… seems to me the more time I would be happy and alble to write lines of code in PJ itself instead of flipping to Xcode - the better.
Whats the long-term plan ROLI / Jules ?
What are peeps thoughts here fellow devs ?
