I’ve got a React app that’s working beautifully but in order for the editor to keep up with my typing I have to either close the tab with the live auto-redeployed app or uncheck the “Refresh App on Changes” checkbox.
Maybe this is a feature request for the editor to somehow detect the delay and ease off on the live refreshing? I’m also not sure if this is specific to the overhead of React or something on my end locally or what. (I’m interested to hear if others have had this problem.)
But the lag at the moment is spoiling some of the exquisite beauty of the Gomix dev experience.
A simpler feature request would be to put the “Refresh App on Changes” checkbox in the header (or the header of the Activity Log section, or the sidebar, or anywhere visible, not behind an additional click). Then it maybe wouldn’t be a big deal to toggle that on and off as I’m editing. Right now it’s easiest to leave it unchecked and manually hit refresh in the app’s browser tab.
UPDATE: It occurs to me there’s already the “Show” button with spectacles icon and a green “Live” indicator. Maybe that’s a logical place for a checkbox? I guess it’s a little confusing because there are two senses of “live” – auto-deploying the app as you type and auto-refreshing the app’s browser tab. It’s only the latter that’s causing problems in my project.
Anyway, ignore all my spitballing. The real feedback is that I can’t type comfortably in the editor without turning off “Refresh App on Changes”.
UPDATE: It’s not just the React project. Even fresh dummy projects have the problem, though less severely.
