We are always looking for new ways to improve DroidEdit. Use this tool to choose what should be implemented next. Please keep each idea separated.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Have an option to Keep Screen Awake

    It would be great if we have an option to prevent the screen from turning off in Edit / Writers mode, helpful for devices set with lower screen timeouts.

    • Add a "quick save" option to tool bar. Too many steps to save a file, currently.

      Right now you have to click the the drop menu button, then click save. When making rapid changes to a page, on a web server for instance, I would much rather have a button on the toolbar for save, then there are two less clicks.

        • Close icons in document list

          On tablet, when I have multiple documents opened, it's complicated to close more of them, you have to click it in document list and then click close icon. I think it would be great to see in document list close icons next to each document, like on webbrowser tabs. Because it happens to me quite often that DroidEdit opens with approx. 10 docs open and I want to close most of them as fast and simply as possible.

          • Remove "failed to upload file" dialog and reconnect instead.

            If your ftp connection times out while you are working on a remote file, I would prefer that the app handled the disconnect more gracefully when you go to save it.

            As of now, saving a file:
            1. Menu, Open Remote File, make a bunch of changes.
            2. Menu, Save.
            [I assume ftp inactive disconnect here]
            3. Dialog, "Failed to upload file."
            4. Click Ok.
            5. Menu, Save.
            6. Dialog, "Connecting, blah blah."
            7. Toast message, "Successfully uploaded file..."

            Here is what I suggest:
            1. Menu, Open Remote file, make a bunch of changes.
            2. Menu, Save.

            • Make it remember the cursor or line when switching between files/tabs

              Right now DroidEdit jumps to the first line every time. The same goes for rotating the screen.

              • Support for github

                Since may developers use github to share and store code, It would be verynice to have an app that supported it.

                      Hi can you please make Droid Edit integrable with over file managers ?
                      I want the possibility to open a file with for example Solid Explorer and edit it with Droid Edit.
                      Thanks

                          Include multi screen support for the galaxy note. The note 10.1 is perfectly suited for coding on the go. Just need an app to do it, and this is already the best coding app

                            probably the best coding font iv ever used. This would be a welcomed option.

                            • Add syntax highlighting for CoffeeScript

                              http://coffeescript.org/

                              As per Wikipedia:
                              CoffeeScript is a programming language that transcompiles to JavaScript. The language adds syntactic sugar inspired by Ruby, Python and Haskell to enhance JavaScript's brevity and readability, and add more sophisticated features like list comprehension and pattern matching. CoffeeScript compiles predictably to JavaScript and programs can be written with less code, typically 1/3 fewer lines, with no effect on runtime performance. Since March 16, 2011, CoffeeScript has been on GitHub's list of most-watched projects, and as of 29 August 2012 is the eleventh most popular language on GitHub.

                                      Please provide an option for custom templates. For example, for LaTeX, we often have some customized settings which are long but does not deserve to be written in a different style file. In that case saving a template will be really helpful.
