The other day I released v1.2 of the Rubocop extension I wrote for my text editor, Panic Nova.
You can now specify running rubocop with a
bundle exec prefix to make sure you’re using the version of Rubocop specified by your application’s Gemfile. This avoids rule conflicts if you update your system Rubocop to a different version.
Why I Like Panic Nova
When I was looking to transition from Sublime Text to another editor, I tried VSCode. It had an annoying bug where my 4K monitor would flicker when I typed. I discovered Panic Nova which is made by the same folks that created Transmit, a file transfer app I loved. A few highlights:
- Nova is Mac native.
- Lots of extensions are available and they are easy to write.
- Fantastic customer support. They always email me back with helpful information or appreciation for my feedback.
- It is regularly updated. Does not feel like abandonware the way Sublime Text did.
I’m working to add a feature to auto-format the current file with Rubocop from a menu item.
