Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Module being reloaded does not support dynamic unloading?

Hey, I'm currently working on an editor plugin by using the "Editor toolbar button". But every time I want to test changes to my new editor button I have to reload the whole editor to see the changes. This creates a pretty "choppy" development flow. Is there a solution to make the module support dynamic un/reload?

I don't believe plugins support hot-reloading... It's a huge pain and I hate it.

There are a couple workarounds though... But you have to kind of change around your entire testing environment.

I was able to recompile Slate code that I was working on, and see the changes live... However when I wanted to implement, I had to reload the editor of course... Buuut for some of those 'oh so slight' Slate changes, not reloading the editor is pretty nice.

Here is the workaround method from youtube channel "Cronofear Softworks" that worked for me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvkFrETmCoA&list=PL7Se41ZzAKZmvCeW9iBpEuh_hxD7bMqMF
