Some interesting early comments on Monterey

Just a few days ago, Rob Eisenberg,  Aurelia team leader and architect introduced Monterey to all Aurelia developers in his blog Introducing Monterey. Here are a few comments provided by users who took their time to answer the Monterey survey question “Any other thought you would like to share with us“, starting with critical and ending with very encouraging..

  • This GUI tool is absolutely no use to me in some development contexts, such as Unix/screen/SSH on remote servers.

We are really not sure how to address this user’s view 🙂

  • Skeleton’s seem to be difficult to get working at times. They need to be polished and rock solid.

We would very much like to fix this issue and if would be very helpful to know more about your experience

  • It’s handy, but I would prefer other features.

Such as …?

  • I’m a bit afraid that from outside aurelia community, this tool could prevent some people start using aurelia – “wow – do I need an application to manage my application development – aurelia must be really difficult to use”. I think it’s important to state the purpose of this tool.

A very good advice that we are trying to address immediately – see this article.

  • I would like to run a sequence of commands. E.g. build my project (au run –watch), open chrome, open visual studio for the front-end, open visual studio to my back-end project all with the click of one button.

Thank you for this suggestion which is completely in line with our plans.

  • Love NPM update module! Keep up the good work.

Configuration of existing applications is high on our list of Monterey features

  • Could this be a Lightswitch replacement?

Very interesting observation, given that providing Lightswitch-like tool was one of the ideas that made us thinking to create Monterey 🙂

  • Awesome framework, awesome tooling, its a joy being a developer.

Thank you, your opinion is a great reward for our work.
