I’ve been learning to use ignition for the last few months. The Designer is honestly pretty good. It’s flexible, so flexible that you could possibly make programmes that aren’t just about SCADA and such.
However one of my biggest pet peeves in using the Designer has been the script editor.
The script editor lacks so many basic features most other programming focused editors have. Automatic construction of commonly used multi line functions like loops, collapsing groups of code and my personal worst, no indentation lines.
Especially since (P/J)ython relies on indentation to order it’s code. The amount of times I couldn’t tell what was going wrong simply because my indents were wrong is staggering.
I’m wondering what you all think about this? Are there some simple solutions I’m not aware of maybe? Or do we all just silently struggle?
