Hi everyone, I’d like to talk about a feature that doesn’t yet seem to be present in c9 - that is, full ‘jump to definition’ functionality. I.e. the ability to hold down the control key and click a function and have the file open that contains that function. I understand that this can work if the function is defined in a currently open file. But am I correct that searching definitions in the whole workspace isn’t currently supported?
I’d have to say this is the main thing standing in the way of c9 being a viable alternative to offline IDEs (I use Eclipse). I’m really excited about cloud IDEs overtaking offline, but in the 6 months I’ve been using c9 I haven’t noticed many useful improvements (sorry guys). I’m looking forward to the day I can run a thinner client as my main development machine (Chromebook maybe?) but I’m guessing there are a lot of obstacles in the way of bringing something as complex as an IDE up to speed.
How can I stay abreast of improvements and functionality that may be in the pipeline, and contribute my feedback? I really like c9, and the flexibility in the environments (like ssh workspaces). This seems to be the future - keep up the good work.
