Current State

Wow. Things are really coming along.

Things I like:
The code editor esp. the themes for viewing code
The layout of properties/events
Built in phonegap build
Built in preview mode (this is already so much better than the old ares)
Clean look

Things not working yet/ not clear:
How do I get phonegap build to really work (I gave it my username/password but it looked like it needed some further authentication)
In playing around with properties/events, sometimes hitting a button would produce no response and I wasn't sure why
In trying to switch between files using the tabs at the top, it would produce a no kinds error that I figured out was because it was trying to dump in pre-existing functions from the designer to the code editor. This produced the error as it tried to reparse the file.

I'm looking forward with a lot of eagerness to using it in the future. Great work.

    also, trying to create a new project gives me the option of where I want the directory but not an option to create a folder... at least for me.

    Change that> I found the button to create a new folder but it doesn't let me name it. Also for some reason the template option didn't appear above the new project popup but below it.
  • The phonegap build setup is a bit fiddly, and that's partly just the nature of code signing for mobile platforms, and partly an Ares issue. I'll see if I can clarify the instructions in the readme.md a little.

    Can you give an example? There are some known bugs there, but you might have run across something new.

    This is something I had *thought* was resolved. Will take another look. Probably, we're not propagating changes from the designer to the editor properly when switching tabs.
  • Thanks for the feedback, by the way.
  • Would it be possible to start preview with the Allow-Access-Origin issues taken care of? Using the right --flags to make it happen?

    The properties/events issue happens with my largest kind (main one). It seemed to happen initially with when evaluating a panels kind within the main one. This is also the kind that has the issue with dumping the pre-existing functions in.

    Also in Deimos if the name of the kind is "too long", it pushes the code editor button out of the toolbar.
