I really like the fact that Icenium provides an IDE but the auto-complete / type-ahead / intellisense features of the code editor seem to be lacking. It seems that more than half of the time the editor does not recognize the javascript object that I am working with and if it makes suggestions it often makes the wrong suggestions. A simple example if the "console" object. The suggestions for the console object do not include the "log" function. It instead tries to append some other function and then I have to backspace over it to get the proper function. Also, objects that I create seem to be hit or miss as to whether any suggestions will be presented. I have been developing with JetBrains WebStorm prior to moving to Icenium and I really miss these features working properly.

Hello Keith,

We really appreciate your feedback. Our auto complete feature is not as usable as it should be. That is why we have disabled it by default. To disable it on your side you should:

1. Open the User Options window
2. Go to General Tab
3. Select he Code Completion category and uncheck the Auto List members option

We are going to improve the suggestions it makes, but until then it would be really great if you could provide us with more information about the things that you miss in our current implementation.

Thank you for using Icenium !

All the best,
Kristina

How do I stop Icenium from auto-closing my tags?  For example, if I type <div> and don't want Icenium to automatically add </div> 

(note: my "General > Code Completion > Auto list members" is unchecked)

Hi,

Currently there is no such option in the code editor and you are the first one to ask about it. Can you provide more details why you want to stop the auto closing of tags? Have you encountered some problem with this functionality, and if so, can you elaborate?

Kind regards,
Steve

If I'm working on existing code and want to surround a section in a div or span tag, it will add one immediately after the opening tag instead of allowing me to add the closing tag at the bottom of a section of code.  Also, if I'm editing code and accidentally delete the ">" character and re-add it, it adds an extra closing tag which is not the desired behavior in that context.  Also, if I'm copying a code segment from a larger external source (Cordova API documentation, jQuery examples, etc.) and only want to copy a portion of their code and so I only copy a segment that doesn't include some closing tags and wish to add them manually, Icenium sometimes gets confused and starts adding opening or closing tags as it sees fit (even much farther down the page where it's less obvious that it breaks the code).

I like that Icenium will detect missing closing tags and display an error, but I'd like a way to turn off auto-adding closing tags so that I can deal with the errors myself instead of the tool trying to implement a solution via artificial intelligence.  I'm okay if the setting is enabled by default since other developers don't seem to mind.  This would be similar to how Eclipse has the setting enabled by default but lets you turn it off.

Hi,

I appreciate the thorough description of the cases which you find troublesome. Based on your feedback, I've logged a couple of items in our bug tracking system and we would include improvements to the code editor for subsequent version of Icenium.

Thank you for the feedback!
