    Default My Suggestions to SA2

    I would suggest you guys to solve at least two things in SA2:

    1) Preferences/Setup: when I change my library ExtJS path reference, press save, this settings should be available to all projects - I don't like when create a new project, the path reference comes up with the old settings.

    2) History manager: I don't know how you guys should solve this, but at a minimum automatic multi level file backups, file differencing and restore it would be nice in SA. e.g. a directory _history in the project.

    3) code completion on-the-fly (similar to intellisense) is nice;

    Default

    re: 1 it may make sense to make a configuration for a default for this setting is definitely on a per project basis. Another related thing that we've been thinking about is including a copy of the library in your working directory rather than pulling it off of the nut.

    re: 2 hrmm any more details?

    re: 3 yes we know

    Thanks for the feedback!

    It's just an idea.

    SA could have a build in file history feature, which lets you revert to old files from within the IDE. That's nice.
    Sencha Architect IDE auto-creates a \history folder with old versions of all your files . XDS, so you can make small "experimental" modifications, while being able to revert to an earlier. File History manager feature to backup and restore files as they are saved.

    __\history
    myproject.xds.~1
    myproject.xds.~2
    myproject.xds.~3
    myproject.xds.~4
    myproject.xds.~5

    Mmmm....

    You can do that now using some version control software (CVS, SVN, GIT, etc).

    I was going to the say the same thing. It makes the case for some kind of integration with GIT inside the tool though, although we definitely have more urgent stuff to do first.

    Default Component behavior "MyClass"

    It would be nice if SA2 would have a component Behavior in toolbar called "MyClass".
    Users could just drag the component into the inspector, then define your class.

    or a shortcut at top of the inspector: User click the + at the top of the inspector, choose "MyClass" and then define your class, choosing what it inherits from, etc.

    Luca I am attaching two images of how my favorite PHP IDE does GIT (or any shell based integration on windows)
    1. Shot: The actual workspace panel inside the ide where all files are displayed.
    2. Shot the context menu which expands to a shell menu where one can use any program offering shell access like in normal file explorer. (That's all in windows.. Mac, Linux integration might differ
    )
