Is autocomplete going to be a thing?

Hey,
i’ve been checking the forum a while back looking for an answer for this, and i found out that some time ago you were in fact planning to make some improvements on this. So i just wanted to know what’s your current view on the situation? I think some implementation of code suggestion would be great

We may never know if this will be added =P

There already is something like this.
Ex. if you are using html and you type

<h1></

The </ will autocomplete into </h1>

But a more advanced system would not be bad either.

they made a vscode plugin that lets you work on glitch projects in vscode.

hasn’t been any indication that they’re going any farther in terms of building a web-embedded IDE though.

If the code editor(I forgot the name) glitch uses has this feature or an extension it should be easy for the glitch team to add it.

Codemirror can show hints: https://codemirror.net/doc/manual.html#addon_show-hint
then you need to load the apprioate file for showing hints
so look in https://codemirror.net/doc/manual.html#addons and look for files with the name hint in them.

I wish they would use Monaco as the code editor, then we could solve editor-related problems. Problem is, it is not well documented.
