It’s really starting to bug me that putting a singular ( or " or ’ puts the ending one right next to it. It disrupts my flow of typing because now I have to move my hand off the letters to the arrow keys, is there a setting to disable this?
Also not every compiler will have this auto-fill feature
I’m with you in finding that feature a little annoying at times.
I tend to ignore it, continue typing what I actually wanted unchanged, and then simply remove the unnecessary characters at the end of the line when I get there. (I occasionally forget that bit, and get an error, but it mostly works.)
Does it not ‘fill in’ the second one when you manually type it? That’s what real editors and IDEs do and is what Codecademy’s editor is emulating. i.e. if you keep typing normally, including the final ', ", ), ], etc. then it’ll be fine.
Whenever you open a codecademy exercise just click on the bookmark and the auto-closing of brackets, parentheses and quotes will be disabled. But you have to click the bookmark every time you open the exercise.
If you use Codecademy extensively and you don’t want to click on the bookmark every 5 minutes then you can add this code as a custom user script using, for example, tampermonkey or witchcraft.
