Re: Free app for Roku dev's

Hi Brian - any updates?  I had to go back to other applications due to inability to copy text from debugger and inability to view debugger after reboot Smiley Sad
If you need a laptop to get there I'd be glad to lend you one Smiley Happy

Thanks Brian!
Here's what I see on Windows 10 w 1.4.1:
Keyboard remote commands working again, yay!
highlight -> right click : Does nothing
Edit -> copy : Does not work
ctrl + C : works (copies highlighted text) and does not break the running sideloaded app, yay!

After device reboot due to some SG problem in our app, can no longer scroll up in the debugger nor copy visible output (Connection Problem! message overlays window)

Debugger wish List:
* If device reboots, debugger output could still be scrolled back and copied from.
* Ability to pause/ restart debugger from displaying further output, to allow analysis and text copying of a specific section while the app continues running and spewing output.
* Ability to throw a visual break (horizontal bar) at the current point (or any point?) in the debugger.

Nice work Smiley Happy
hope you and your family had a great Thanksgiving

Re: Free app for Roku dev's

OK not to be nitpicky, because, yes this app is awesome and I keep it open all the time!

* in the debugger when press up to get to the last command, would be convenient to have the cursor at the end instead of beginning;
* after entering command in debugger, would be convenient to see the entered command on screen preceding the output, so that after several commands have been entered, can easily scroll back and see what command triggered what output;
* the output of the "mark" tool could probably be simplified to just the space and bar without the ## Mark stuff.. or maybe a way to customize what the mark outputs? (trivial stuff really, I love the "mark" tool!);
* the daily nag to download the new version is annoying!  As I have this installed on 3 or 4 PCs now, they're not all updated.  But I guess annoying is the intention of the "nag" feature...

Re: Free app for Roku dev's

I love all feedback so thank you!  I will add these to the list.  The auto updating is something I've had on my list for a while now.  I just need to sit down and figure it out and truthfully I didn't have enough users before to warrant worrying about it.  However, the app is gaining users so I will bump this up on the list.  On the topic of users.  I've reached out to Roku several times about how to best get the word out and I haven't received a response from them at all with the exception of Joel.  So if you like what I'm doing feel free to help me get the word out Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

I have a lot of great things coming.  Thanks for all the feedback!

Re: Free app for Roku dev's

I just released version 2.0.0 which includes the auto updating and the ability to send text to your device.  

You can download it at http://www.stegmancompany.com#RokuDashboard

Roku is making some ground with their tools (https://devtools.web.roku.com) so I'm not sure how much more I will continue to work on this app.

Enjoy!
