I have just expanded on my plugin I made about 9 months ago, called Canary Notepad.
Right now, I have implemented multiple saves, and deleting those saves.
This is a notepad plugin as said in the title. You can currently save your notes to multiple save slots, delete your notes, and load them any time. It also is compatible for dark mode and LIGHT MODE and has studio-matching UI.
Not trying to be rude to the developer, but something I want to add to this is that the default notepad app is better since it can be used offline without even opening the studio. But with this, it’s just another plugin in studio and I can’t even use it till I open studio. People who use VSC to code, just find it useless.
Please don’t take this post harshly, but instead of creating plugins that are just replication of something that already exists and not making it better, try to make something that actually is a creative idea like making this into an application that in some way connects with roblox studio or something like that. Obviously, there are people that find this useful too.
Yes but no, sure the default notepad is great, but it is just that, default boring notepad, an external, not integrated with studio app.
This is still possibly a vastly useful plugin in the sense that it actually is integrated in to studio, this could allow for sharing notes with teams (team create) without ever leaving studio, for example.
Another example, it could let you store useful implementation details inside the actual game. (All potential)
And while your point about VSC is valid, not everyone uses it, definitely not by a long shot, so that isn’t fair. This is a studio plugin, if VSC mattered here it would be a VSC extension.
Criticism is great, but you should aim to be constructive. For example, if your points were all, well, on point, what could they do instead?
A good plugin doesn’t have to be advanced or special to be useful.
I’ve tried the plugin and never got asked for script injection permission so that’s odd.
Anyway, I think the plugin does what it’s meant to nicely, and I love the dark and light mode support.
The only thing I could think of missing is a confirmation dialogue when you try to delete things, I’d totally accidentally do that at some point.
Nothing revolutionary to me but simple is how I like it, I don’t like the swiss army knife approach some plugins take, so I might actually use this.
The only question I have is how are the notes stored, purely locally in the plugin, or in an instance somewhere?
Looks like a nice plug-in my computer is kinda slow so switching between notepad and other softwares to try to take notes can take time so a plug-in that’s built in like this will save me a lot of time, also my notes will all be in the projects it’s supposed to be in without trying to sort through a notebook, thank you
