    Hi :)

    The ability to edit plugin code directly from the backend is super cool, thanks!

    I tried accessing the "Page Help" functionality with no success, the popup displays with an error message stating that "octobercms.com" refused the connection.

    The ability to edit plugins is very useful. I really miss syntax highlighting though.

    Is this plugin my go-to development platform for any of my October sites? No. Do I use it on every single October site anyways? Yes. Why? Simple. I have needed to be able to access my plugin code quickly on multiple occasions where I'm not at my office and this provides exactly that!

    The ability to edit plugins makes this a must-have plugin. However, I get an error when trying to make a new directory.

    <code>exception 'Symfony\Component\Debug\Exception\FatalErrorException' with message 'Call to a member function dirName() on a non-object' in /var/www/html/plugins/indikator/devtools/widgets/assetlist/partials/_new_dir_form.htm:22</code>
