Mu-editor suggestions

Post by ktjoseph » Mon Jun 25, 2018 1:32 am

These suggestions are related to Python3 mode of the very very attractive mu-editor.
1. Two more toggle buttons: (1) OUTPUT, (2) SHELL

OUTPUT is a partition on the right half of the mu-editor window, to display outputs of runs. Vertical division. On the left we see the program and on the right the output. When a new output is delivered, OUTPUT partition is displayed automatically. Output of previous runs may be displayed in light gray background.

SHELL is a separate partition and it occupies the same place as OUTPUT. SHELL output is displayed in SHELL itself. Copy/paste between SHELL and editor allowed.

REPL also occupies the same place as OUTPUT/SHELL. REPL output is displayed in REPL itself.

PLOT button can be removed for Python3 mode.

INPUT dialog box: Appears on input(). Disappears on entering input. A box containing the input along with the prompt goes to OUTPUT.

No horizontal partitioning. Displays maximum program statements.

Music: Make a sound module for Python that works like the one in BBC BASIC of 80s.

The mu IDE is not part of the MicroPython project. Suggestions for improvement are best directed to its developers.
