    is it a waste?
  • (2017-03-28, v:0.0.8) Ivan Korolev: Autocompletion
    Hi! I'm wondering if autocompletion is enabled by default. Because I can't see any suggestions - neither for standard keywords nor functions from std lib.
  • (2016-10-20, v:0.0.8) PR Patel: how to use it
    I didn't find any way to use the plugin i mean the dark theme and syntax highlighting as show in the images. Please tell me how to use it?
  • (2016-10-12, v:0.0.8) William Kennedy: Not Resetting Code Window
    I have been using the plugin to teach classes. But I am finding the plugin is finding an old cached version that does not represent the link I have provided. Actually the link in the browser changes to the blank playground link but the code is wrong :(
  • (2016-06-28, v:0.0.7) Christoph Berger: Popup when opening the playground
    When opening the playground, and there is some previous content, the plugin asks whether to restore this previous content. This can get (mildly) annoying if the playground is used a lot. Suggestion: Just restore the previous content without asking, and add a "Clear" button that resets the playground to the initial code template.
  • (2015-08-31, v:0.0.7) Brian Johnson: Color theme?
    A dark color theme would be nice. :) Thanks
  • (2015-04-28, v:0.0.6) Matheus Felipe: "Run" shortcut
    Apparently the shortcut to run the app ( SHIFT + Enter ) has changed with the installation of this extension. This combination now actually runs "Format". To run the app now I have to use CTRL + Enter. Definitely not a big deal but I thought I should let you know since it appears to be an unintended change. Nonetheless, excellent app! So much better to use than the pure playground UI. Thanks !

    Added. How do open tool ?
