file, but then still have to provision a
file in order to execute it. The UI is not helpful about the format of
and I'm left doing online research just to make the most basic of Kotlin
run. ▪︎ 💡 Remediation idea: Give Fleet some 'default handlers' for common file types. These can either be executed in one-click or transposed into a new or existing
first for keeping/editing. ◦ 3️⃣ Use case: Try out a small fragment of Kotlin, when there is no project open. ▪︎ IntelliJ: Not quite a fair comparison as we need to have some project open; but I can still access REPL from any project and start executing Kotlin without further preparation of the workspace. ▪︎ Fleet: I can only create a temporary file but cannot execute anything in it. Not useful until project folder is opened. ▪︎ 💡 Remediation idea: Make the 'default handlers' idea from the previous point, also work in Fleet's 'temporary directory' context. • While understanding Fleet is about more than just Kotlin; the language is surely a key focus. Hopefully these ease-of-use points are being planned for.
