If I click the compile button in Particle Dev, it sens my files to the build farm and returns a list of compiler errors.
As far as I know, the only way to view these compiler errors is to click on the red exclamation point message in the bottom of the Atom tray.
This brings up a search window with the errors listed, that allows you to search through the errors.
Clicking on one of the errors closes this compiler error list and brings you to the exact location in the sourcecode where the error originated.
This is kinda nice because on one hand it saves me from manually navigating to that spot in the sourcecode to fix the error, however on the other hand it also closes the list of compiler errors, forcing me to click on the exclamation point message again to re-open the list of compiler errors once I’ve fixed the first one. What’s more, the list doesn’t remember where you were when you last had it open, and defaults to the top of the list (even though I just fixed that error and want to view the next error now). This is particularly annoying when you have dozens of errors to fix.
Is there a way to navigate from one compiler error to the next one using Atom command line? If so, I can set up a keybinding to do so and save myself this headache.
As of right now, I’m going to continue compiling using Particle CLI because at least it outputs a static text list of compiler errors that I can work through from top to bottom without losing my spot (even if I still have to manually navigate to that error in my source code).
This is close to being a useful Particle-Dev feature, but right now only seems useful if you have less than 5 compiler errors.
