Hi, there is a weird error in the C3IDE editor that happens by exporting the plugin:

this is how it looks in the editor:

    Acts.prototype.Test1 = async function()

and this is how it looks in the addon:

    Acts.prototype.Test1 = async


Please fix it, thanks :D

This tool does not have any type of malware, full source code is available here https://github.com/armandoalonso/c3IDE , others have had similar issue with the virus scan treating it as a false positive https://github.com/armandoalonso/c3IDE/issues/34 https://github.com/armandoalonso/c3IDE/issues/50

I use c3IDE with Parallels on Mac and it works great. I use nodemon on mac to create a dev addon server which I can point at the Parallels (Windows) c3IDE compile directory to serve the add on in developer mode, very smooth for dev. Let me know if you need help.


Awesome tool thank you!


This is a great tool for Construct plugin and effect development, I've developed multiple plugins and effects using the tool and it's really streamlined what used to be a tedious and error-prone process. Don't forget to use Construct developer mode and the built in c3IDE webserver to allow for fast iterations of your new plugin with construct.

I am studying using the tool. Could I contact you via somehow to get guidance (I made one addon myself)?


I am not the developer, I suggest starting a new comment to the developer directly.
