Choose a Text Editor

Frontend
On our radar
There's certain hot-keys, features, and commands to a text-editor which have become second nature to writing code fast and effeciently. Mostly all of these features are missing from the Service Studio's text-editor, and I've found it really hinders my ability to quickly write/edit my scripts and css. 

As a user I would like the optional ability to choose my own text-editor to use. This would be a major improvement to the usability of Service Studio.

Merged this idea with 'Support external tools from Service Studio' (created on 19 Jun 2018 13:02:05 by Mikko Nieminen)

It would be great if Service Studio had a possibility to use external editors for text content (javascript, css), or have some hooks to enable "open / edit this resource in external app" type of functionality.

This would allow:

  1. developers who have to write CSS, to use their existing SASS/LESS toolchains without interrupting the flow by constant copy-paste between output and CSS editor.
  2. javascript developers to use more powerful linting & spell-checking tools or other toolchains, again without interrupting the flow by constant copy-paste between editors.
  3. merging of text files with BeyondCompare or similar tools

General motto seems to be "we are never the first player, so we need to play nice with all the others" - why not with developers?
