Turns out I was wrong! Well, sort of…
While my current test app is simple, Node.JS certainly has a pretty good learning curve. Also, I will need to bounce between RW and a command line tool in order to continue development. For instance if I need to install new packages or view that content of files located in node_modules.
This brings me to a couple things being added to my wish list.
When setting up publishing we can currently view the files and directories on our server. It would be nice to add a button for this next to the Projects, Themes, Media, and Snippets buttons.
I would like to be able to preview the contents of the files on the server
I would like a button that launches a simple command line interface to that I can npm install packages and run other commands without leaving RW.
