I was just wondering… When I think how easy it is in a visual editor to edit visual things in code, I often dive into a class to write some rules myself. Where I can see all my Tailwind classes applied.
Well… If the new design tool can inject those classes visually, which you HAVE to use to add Tailwind classes, can it than also directly inject those classes in the Monaco editor? It’s Open Source, so…
It does that after all, injecting and appending/deleting/editing classes inline, so why not do that directly inside Pinegrow? It’s inception, yes, but the right kind if you ask me; a kind of design system in itself to ‘manually’ write out the actual code, with a visual aid.
Makes perfect sense if you ask me and I would love it already if it could only ADD new classes. That would change the whole idea of an IDE for me; a visual editor to help you code, with live editable previews.
Same tool, same system, different UX; It would mean that if you put Pinegrow on an iPad, and would restrict how people use it, this is how I would do it to make you actually productive without the need for a keyboard.
