            • Add a few missing options to Run/Debug

              A few missing critical features
              - Run/Debug settings: working directory & -mnesia dir.
              Don't like having to specify -mnesia dir on erl runtime config.
              - Eclipse variable substitution on all/most fields.
              Would really be nice to use ${project_loc} in configs.

              • hightlight for atoms like ok, true, false, error...

                support customized atom hightlight.
                It's not hard, but very useful.
                I always type "ture" :)

                  • allow block level indent and un-indent

                    I want the ability to highlight a block of code and push tab or shift-tab to indent or un-indent the entire block of code. This would shave off lots of time formatting the code.

                    • document, how to setup/run multiple nodes

                      It'd be quite nice to start multiple nodes directly from erlide

                      • don't stop working on the project :)

                        on first glance it looks like it is going to help me work with erlang projects a LOT better - particularly find references etc.

                        I'll give more feedback as I use it more

                        • Project freezes when debugging or running

                          I downloaded Eclipse for C/C++ developers and installed Erlide. Then I created a brand new Erlang project. First thing I did was Run -> Debug As -> Erlang Application.

                          Eclipse froze.

                          I tried running without debugging, Eclipse froze again.

                          I'm new to Erlang so I may be missing something, but freezing should never happen. It's not such a good first impression.

                          • there are problems

                            when i create a new erlang project an error occurs:
                            "The selected wizard could not be started.
                            Plug-in org.erlide.ui was unable to load class org.erlide.ui.wizards.NewErlangProject.
                            An error occurred while automatically activating bundle org.erlide.ui (288)."

                            my eclipse is: eclipse-standard-kepler-SR1-linux-gtk-x86_64.
                            my system is: opensuse 13.1 x86_64

                                • Fix scroll wheel support in the console

                                  One used to be able to simply move the mouse over the console window and move the mouse wheel to scroll back in the history. This is critically important when looking at large logs. It would be awesome if that worked again.

                                    • Make it possible to exclude a file

                                      It should be possible to exclude files from build. For example, we have a structure where we describe in a Makefile which files to be built. This has led to the creation of some .erl-files in the src directory which are not built, such as Template.erl etc. It is important that one can exclude these so that the errors and warnings lists are accurate.

                                        While this is possible to implement, I feel it might be confusing. For one thing, if an excluded file is added or deleted you have to modify both the Makefile and the erlIDE project.
                                        Wouldn’t it be more straightforward to just create the templates in a separate directory that isn’t a source directory?

                                      • Don't see your idea?
