Scripted editor developers enhance customisability
To simplify installation, Scripted can now be installed with the
npm (Node Package Manager) command; users will of course have to install Node.js first. The node server now remains running in the background and a "scr" command will make it visible, or relaunch it if it is not currently running. The editor relies heavily on keyboard shortcuts and, to satisfy more users, has moved to allow any key binding to be reconfigured.
JSLint was previously used for code validation in Scripted, but due to "popular demand" the developers have switched to using JSHint. In their plans for future versions, the developers aim to make the linter, and other metric computation tools, pluggable. They are also looking at making better use of the side panel, supporting editor theming (when they move to a more recent version of Orion's editor), and hope to integrate a debugger.
