Quickly Open Things in 4D Development Environment and Sync Code Between Projects – Cannon Smith
Project mode in 4D opens some interesting development tool possibilities that we didn’t have before, especially now with the new FORM EDIT command added in v18 R5. In this meeting, we’ll explore two such tools that have been made available publicly on GitHub… DevQuickOpen and DevSync.
The first is something that mimics Xcode’s Open Quickly feature to quickly get to methods, classes, forms, documentation and more. Find yourself using Find in Design frequently while developing? I know I do. This tool can help you get to the relevant file in the development environment more quickly!
The second is a tool for keeping “modules” of code among different projects in sync. This may be a more niche tool, but very valuable for those who need it.
Automatically copy the following items of a folder from the currently running project to other projects…
Child folders (all the way down the chain), Methods, Classes, Forms, Method documentation, Class documentation, Form documentation
