OrchidE 2020.1.7.0: New Features

OrchidE 2020.1.7.0 brings a new inspection to check the type of keyword or module argument. Code completion for keywords and module arguments now also offer known values for even faster editing.

Type Checks

OrchidE can now check the types

  • boolean,
  • integer and
  • selection list

for keywords and module arguments and warn when type is wrong.

The use of Jinja variables with simple references is also supported.

Type definitions are used from collection and keyword documentation. Custom definitions from argument_specs are currently not supported.

Code Completion with values

Boolean and selection lists are now included as additional code completion suggestion at keywords and module arguments.

Code completion with values

Which combination of boolean (true/false, yes/no, on/off) is suggested can be set in the editor settings.
