More room to write code

Let’s face it, writing more than a few lines of code inside of Retool isn’t usually a great experience: code inputs are small, there aren’t any line numbers, and the text wrapping can be aggressive. This week, we’re excited to ship a new movable, resizable editor window that can be popped out from any code input. Whether you’re writing a custom component, editing JSON for a Chart component, or writing a long SQL query—it’s finally much nicer to write multiline code in Retool.

We’re working to bring even more code editing improvements to Retool, so drop us a note at support@retool.com and let us know what you’d like to see next.
