    For building apps that run on other platforms (beyond the browser), we are focused on improving the Flutter experience. This is our primary focus in this area for the foreseeable future.


    For native Android and iOS development:


    1.) Is the desire to use the VS Code editor that IDX is based on for native development for these platforms?


    2.) Or is it the ability to run Android Studio and Xcode in the browser without requiring any local installation? Please comment with your thoughts.


    Please comment with your thoughts below.

  3. It would be good to implement templates since it is another alternative to flutter. It would also be good to implement .idx/dev.nix to be automatically loaded when cloning a git repository

  4. Introduce the capability to browse and open local filesystem directories, as available in vscode.dev, where users can open directories and not just individual files, directly from the browser interface.

    Current behavior in vscode.dev: Users can interact with the local filesystem through the browser, opening folders and files as if working locally, without uploading content to the server, which effectively bridges local and cloud development environments.

    Impact: Implementing this would reduce context-switching and improve user experience by providing a seamless development workflow that integrates local and cloud-based resources.

    Technical Suggestion: Adopt a File System Access API strategy to enable secure and…

  5. Please include support for the iOS simulator within IDX for Flutter projects. This addition would greatly simplify the process of testing and debugging iOS apps directly within IDX, eliminating the need for external tools or complex setups. If iOS support is disabled, kindly provide a reason for the decision. Thank you for considering this request.

  8. I've been teaching students using IDX these days, more or less for fun and also to test how well the IDX AI performs w.r.t React.js. A feature that I use sometimes on the local machine is Live Share extension.

    A brief description of the extension -
    The Live Share Extension on VSCode enables other dev to work on the same instance of VSCode on multiple files, which is extremely useful when creating small scale projects.
    I understand that it is developed by a different company (Microsoft) but it will be helpful specifically for teaching purposes.
    There can be an alternative…

  9. 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!

  11. I have a suggestion for a new feature: adding a Python Selenium template for web automation projects. This would greatly benefit users who frequently work with Selenium for web automation tasks and enhance the platform's utility for a wider range of users.

  12. Automatic intelligent code checking. On the example of Quokka (plugin for VSCode) only that it would be interactive and automatically prompt you. For example, if you have an error in some place, it will highlight it and can solve it yourself or will describe why it happens.

  14. Dear Google Project IDX Team,

    I would like to provide feedback on the current template options available in the platform. Specifically, we need support for CordovaJS. Including a template for CordovaJS would greatly benefit developers who use Google Project IDX for hybrid mobile application development.

    CordovaJS is a widely used framework for building mobile applications with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Support for CordovaJS in Project IDX would streamline the development process, allowing us to leverage the powerful capabilities of this framework directly within your platform.

    Thank you for considering this request. Your support in enhancing the template options will be…

  17. I want to connect to IDX from something other than the browser. Ideally, this could be my local VSCode instance or it could be over SSH from a terminal running neovim. I would like the power of a cloud workstation from my favorite environments.

  20. Currently, "Import a repo" (when creating a new workspace) only works for cloning an entire repo.

    The ability to import a specific directory/path from a repo would be helpful, since many web frameworks have official examples in directories in a single repo.

    Example:
    - https://github.com/withastro/astro/tree/main/examples (Astro)
    - https://github.com/vercel/next.js/tree/canary/examples (Next.js)

    Other online IDEs support this ability, such as Stackblitz, CodeSandbox.
