auto-completion of brackets, etc. [feature]

Reported by Kenneth | December 26th, 2010 @ 10:34 AM

What I did: Type an opening [, {, (, ', ", etc.

What I expected to happen: The closing bracket to be automatically inserted after the cursor.

    This one is quite essential. At least with {} I think. It would be really nice to if there's a way to do this on language level so it could be auto completed as the standard for that language. For instance

    if (string != "") {
    alert(string); }

    if (string != "")
    { Console.Write(string); }

    That didn't go well =P The editor didn't print out the text as I wrote it...

    Additionally, it'd be great if:

    • Kod could shortly highlight the matching counterpart of a bracket,accolade,quote when the cursor is over a certain char. So when cursor is on '(' it'd shortly highlight the matching ')'.

    • Bonuspoints for making this invokable behaviour where the cursor jumps to the counterpart character. Like the '%' action in Vim.

    I must also add my 2 cents saying this feature would be great!

    I think Kod is really beautiful. It would be great if, when I hover over or click on an open/close bracket, the matching close/open bracket is highlighted. Then I could happily use it as my day-to-day editor :).

    The auto-completion of brackets. For computer science students, it is very commonly seen the open and closing the brackets. They are of different types of square braces, circular braces, and www.findcabletvproviders.comcurly braces. The closing brackets are automatically inserted to the cursor.
