Is there any think on the roadmap / plans for a "version choice" when you chose to install from the palette?
My current dilemma...
- Need to update package but waiting until a dependency comes out of alpha
- Need to get a package out for testing but few folk have the knowledge or cahoones to whip out the command line/terminal
I see this be very useful when requesting users test out a beta version of a published node
"John please find "xxxxxx" in the palette, click install, select version 7.0.0-beta.1 - tell me if it plays nice on your installation"
I see it useful for when a new version is broken (or doesnt play nice) - permits the user to remove & re-install the older working version.
"Sorry about that John please uninstall the node and then reinstall "xxxxxx" version 6"
A solution? (easy)...
- Upon clicking install, popup shows a confirmation box with "Install" & "Cancel" buttons AND a version edit box with "latest" written in. This would permit the user to enter a string like
7.0.0-beta.1. Perhaps to assist the user, a link to the NPM versions page could be included?
A solution? (bit harder)...
- Upon clicking install, popup shows a confirmation box with "Install" & "Cancel" buttons AND a version selector (pre-populated from NPM) with all versions (INCLUDING alphas / betas) permits the user to choose what version is installed.
Thanks for reading.
