    I have two questions: 1) Apart from the integration in the Editor and the ping to the current opened document, what are the advantages of your asset compared to using Visual Studio Code directly? 2) What is the price of the asset?

    Thanks for your questions.

    For #1, this assets is smaller than VSCode, easy setup, and it can interactive with Unity Editor (Ping document is a sample) and focus on Unity Programming... VSCode is great but it's a code editor for all developers, not only for unity developers.

    For #2, I want to set it to $10 in beta phrase, but not sure after that..

    I just tried to install the beta. There is a thing called "omniSharp". This is something apart from Unity, and meant to be installed just for your windows version, to get uCodeEditor working ?! Is this really needed, in the final version ? Also i have to install NET 4.6. Is this also necessary ? I would like it, to have a uCodeEditor install just inside Unity and no other stuff for Windows, when possible (portable style).

    Omnisharp is required, not only on windows, but also on macOS. It's the engine that powers C# language features.
    For the .NET 4.6 issue, I think it's introduced by a tool developed by me, I will try to make it as not required if possible.

    Thank you very much for your feedbacks.

    Okay. But omnisharp is portable, for windows ? As far as took a look, it was zipped without an installer. I like the portable way. And would be great if we don´t need to install NET 4.6

    Yes, uCodeEditor packages already include the Omnisharp in it for both of Windows and macOS, no extra download actions required. And I will try to remove the .NET 4.6 required.

    I'm sorry. I can't imagine a workflow where I'd want to edit code and not be able to connect it to debug. I guess if you have other members of the team that are no programmers and you quickly need to fix something then maybe, but a lot of the time, even then, I need a debugger on their machine to be able to diagnose a problem first.

    Yes, Debugger is very useful in that case, but may be it's not required fo all cases. As far as I know, most of my friends don't use debugger in their daily work, espeically who works on macOS platform... But I do agree with you that Debugger is a very important component. I will try to add it if possbile in future. For now, uCodeEditor is a code editor, after adding the Debugger, we can call it as an IDE then :)

    i'd also use this for fast coding only, if i need debugging ill just start VS then..

    questions
    - is there some way to show matching brace lines?
    - or jump to matching brace?
    - also can i set custom shortcut keys? (say for "autoformat document" to be F12)
    - is there duplicate line shortcut key or can i add it? as in ctrl+D, would duplicate current row

    #1. Yes, it has an action named 'Go To Bracket' can jump to the matching brace line
    #2. Yes jump to matching brace
    #3. Have no such feature in beta, but it's possible to do that. May be add it in later release.
    #4. Yes, have duplicate line shortcut.

    For correct shortcut settings for specific action, it's not easy inside Unity Editor. Because Unity Editor have many shortcuts which can cause shortcut conflict...

    maybe related to autosave,
    so if unity suddenly crashes (during entering playmode or maybe during some bad import),
    will the currently unsaved code be saved?

    and is there some risk of losing some code if it crashes while its actually saving the script data?
    (although probably quite small change of happening exactly at the same time)

    uCodeEditor will save the unsaved scripts before entering playmode automatically and saving logic have no changes to cause unity editor crashes. If autosave turn on, uCodeEditor will save data after script changes, this happen before importing assets. If autosave turn off, bad import may cause script changes lost.

    If there are something external make Unity Editor crash while the saving process is running, that will case data lost, because the saving is not completed... But that will be very very very little chance for that happen, because saving process will be completed in very short time, which is less a second normally.

    @Reanimate_L I digged into code and found there is a bug on windows platform. below is the fix:

    in file uCodeEditor/Editor/CoreWebviewComService

    change line 100:

    from
    Code (CSharp):
    1. if (!File.Exists(temp[0]))
    to
    Code (CSharp):
    1. #if UNITY_EDITOR_WIN
    2. if (!File.Exists(temp[1]))
    3. #else
    4. if (!File.Exists(temp[0]))
    5. #endif
    will fix the bug.

    Just found out about this, and it looks awesome.

    One question / request

    Can it edit csx files (and run them)

    The workflow I have in mind is to create small scripts to process some assets, or to modify some objects in the hierarchy, and I don't want to create an editor class and menu item every time.

    So i'd use this kind of like a REPL

    Hi @rawna,

    uCodeEditor does not support edit csx files and run them for now, but it's possible do that because Omnisharp does support csx file. CSX support is a big topic i think, would you mind send me email to me? let's discuss it using email.

    Thanks,
    Amlovey
