  1. Not sure If this is possible even with PWA but it if it it would be amazing if I could work on my project on multiple displays. Maybe a button that opens another tab/window and a drag and drop to a spot that moves it to the other "display".

  2. IDX Desktop (Windows, macOS, Linux), either:

    1. Electron / Tauri wrapper
    2. Or React Native desktop app

    For better avoidance of browser keyboard shortcuts / better native + OS integration

    I'm a big supporter of web standards, but running an editor in a browser tab or even as a desktop PWA is often lacking / janky (judging based on the VS Code editor on github.dev)

    Alternative Considered: PWA

    If you manage to achieve parity by fixing the UX problems and integrating natively, making it work without downsides, I'll be on board with running IDX as a PWA!

  3. If you customize your panels, themes, fonts, colors, and other settings, we want to ensure your customizations are persisted the next time you access Project IDX.

  4. You may have separate projects (with their own build process, etc.) that you still want to see and control from inside the same workspace. This type of project structure is one we want to better support.

  5. To be able to show an application running on the Project IDX VM, for example I use c++ and it would be cool to be able to see the applications that I am compiling and building.

  8. The current online Android emulator is experiencing significant lag and lacks touch responsiveness, impacting the user experience negatively. This hinders developers' ability to efficiently test and debug their Android applications in a simulated environment.

  9. Its very hard to give access to one person at a time to look at a frontend project, so instead of doing all that, why not add a "make app public" option? so that other people can access it and I can easily preview my next js apps with a simple command: 'npm run dev' and then share the localhost link to others to show them previews

  11. Hello, Just discovering IDX, very exciting product!
    I just set up a repo that is a monorepo, with /backend with a Nest.js server, and a /frontend with an Angular app.

    Is it possible to:
    - Have both running, port 3000 and 8080, and allow each to communicate with each other?
    - Set up monospace.json and specify working_directory for each project listed?

    For the moment, should the monospace.json file live in the root of the repo, or nested at the root of each project?

  13. I wish that Project IDX would be able to work locally as well as in the browser.

    So I can take it on a plane and keep working.

  14. I believe that for IDX to go forward, you somehow need to create a UI for the dev.nix file, so that I can assemble the desired components, many people do not know nix or are familiar with it. I could, for example, choose if I want Angular, and which version of it, which version of the node I would use, so that I can build the desired model, but without using nix codes.

  15. For experienced nix users, the channel and packages parameters overlap with flakes enough that there's no need to wrap them up in a bespoke DSL. If a project already has a flake.nix that includes a devShell, it's not clear how this should be wired up.

    For inexperienced nix users, being forced to learn Nix to edit the idx-specific entry seems unnecessary.

  16. I've been used for a long time the "Vim" extension for vscode, for example.

    I started the IDX and the first thing I did was install this extension.

    When I try to switch between panels using "ctrl+w+h", for example, the browser window asks me if I want to leave the page.

    So, if the Vim extension could map correctly your keymaps without the influence of the current browser maps, it was amazing.

  17. It would be great if there was a design tool similar to Figma so that we could convert our design into code and integrate it with the help of Gemini.

  18. When I started my workspace I had only thought of one use case but then the scope evolved and my original workspace name no longer reflects what my workspace does. I tried "Save workspace as..." but it didn't change the folder name and it didn't permanently change the workspace name the next time I loaded the workspace.

  19. inspired by https://github.com/replit/upm perhaps using https://github.com/astral-sh/uv as backend, to help make it much easier + faster to install packages for the user. The replit package installation experience is very smooth - perhaps in the future, this could be combined with poetry or rye (by astral-sh as well) to manage all python projects

  20. Currently, I love Project IDX, but I still think it is a little hard to test out Android Apps built in Flutter and Firebase from the User Interface VS Android Studio.

    Could this development experience be made a little bit easier; for something Flutter is famous for on "painting user interfaces for mobile applications?"
