      • In editor settings : add a checkbox to toggle view of people's selections

        While sharing with several users, if some of them are selecting the code (Ctrl+A , Cmd+A) to copy/paste it , everyone is seeing the selection highlights, which can be really embarrassing to read the initial code.

        Adding a simple checkbox in the preference to toggle that behavior would be helpful for readability :)

        Again, thanks for this really cool and simple tool.

          • visible tab count

            option 1: Have a line going from the start of a tab to where that tab ends
            example:

            "Start"
            "Code start"
            | "Some more code start"
            | | "Final Code"
            | "Code end 1"
            "code end 2"

            option 2: having a tab "closer"
            example

            "start"
            "code 1"
            ^(arrow to open/close)
            "code 1 end"

                • Fix the syntax for JavaScript

                  How about make codeshare remember functions and variables so syntaxes have the right color?
                  I'm tired of seeing my already-defined function have a different color.

                      • cmd + arrow up/down should go to top or bottom of the page

                        When pressing CMD + up/down arrow on a mac the cursor should be, in my opinion, sent to the top or bottom of the file.

                          • rainbow parens

                            Clojure and other Lisp dialects are really hard to write/read without rainbow-colored parenthesis so it is easy to match open paren with the close paren. This is true for other brace types too ([], (), {}).

                            It isn't uncommon for the last line of a function in Clojure/Lisp to end with something like this:

                            ))]))}))))))

                            Good luck telling if you're missing a parenthesis or not without color. :)

                                • i have a suggestion

                                  i think sometimes we are showing our code to many people, but want some part of the code to be inaccessible to some the viewers.
                                  so basically you should include a box of which people are seeing our code and also we should be able to highlight text to public or specific to some people. this will make this site super professional.
                                  i also want to thanks the whole team for providing such a good service for free.
