Thanks for the update; it’s great that this keeps moving along!
Re: macro recording, how is the recorded data made useful for the user?
The recorded DMR operations are presented in a read-only editor.
They're already shown in CLI syntax. There's also a
"copy-to-clipboard" button for easy CLI execution.
I think this is one where we need to think through the use cases carefully so we make
sure we cover all the necessary ones or at least don’t do something that blocks covering
One thing I know that’s been requested is taking the output of this kind of recording and
being able to execute it from the CLI. But that implies CLI syntax instead of raw DMR. And
then if we start getting into variable etc it’s important that it be done in a consistent
and compatible way.
Right, adding advanced features like variables and iterations needs
more research and a consistent exchange with the CLI.
