This is posted on QR if you want to vote I'm new to the whole pascal thing compared to your customers (I'm only two year old), and I'm using Delphi community edition 10.2.3 for my current development. I just spent more than 6 hours reading posts and topics about the quality of the IDE and how there are many bugs in it (flagging inline variables as error is funny though) and how it is lacking a lot of quality features that are now a days something for granted. I'm being honest here and I would like to say that the first two things I did after those 6 hours was: 1) look for Delphi alternatives (I found few of them that show promise c# and c++ the vs version) 2) come to propose an Idea here. This is mainly coming from love to the Delphi language and its power, but lets be forward here and say that there is no way I'm going to stick around for as long as those guys in stackOverflow did (some of them 20 years!!!!) with an IDE like the current one. So at the end I would like to propose an Idea that could help a bit, Why not fork the VSCode editor and add the basic form designer to it, it is already supporting Delphi through OminiPascal extension and it could even use syntax highlighters and more features that come out of the box that are not in the Delphi IDE for now. It could support every lacking part from the IDE and it is open sourced so you could get some help from other developers on it. I'm only looking for an answer that could heal the hole in my hart for now. Best regards Nasreddine.
