Subject [GitHub] couchdb pull request: 2160 string edit
Date Mon, 23 Jun 2014 19:01:25 GMT
Github user sebastianrothbucher commented on the pull request:
    Thanks for your great feedback so far!
    @garrensmith : I've included your suggestions and added some small methods to the editor
component to achieve that (I stuck to them quite closely except for one method for replacing
the line)
    @bradnoble : I would only open the editor when the JSON as such is valid (actually thanks
for pointing this out, I put in some more code to double-check). Reason being that the string
gets unquoted - and a wrong string can yield surprising / unpredictable results and really
mess up the JSON editor. And indeed: icon-edit (fa-edit in FontAwesome) does look better,
I've include this one instead of the keyboard. So far I'm turning the icon into disabled state
when either several lines are selected or the cursor / selection is on a line without a string.

    Concerning the idea of putting the icon besides the line (somewhat like a SmartTag in
some office suites ;-) ): I'm not sure and I also have no real opinion just yet (as e.g. the
button would come closer but you start chasing it like a SmartTag; as the button gets to where
your eyes are but outside the toolbar where buttons are not unexpected). Just not sure. Let
me / let us all put some more thought into this one
    Besides: I have to figure out how to do this anyway (by positioning, by css class like
the error icon, by some other way, ...), so maybe we get some more feedback on this in parallel
