Abbreviations (or macro expansions) in the editor:

c Ctrl-B ==> cube([]);
t Ctrl-B ==> translate([])

and so on.

I implemented it so many years ago but got fed up of asking to put the code in the main branch.

Still quite boring to re apply patches to every new release too.

I'd much rather we leave the editor basic, and focus development efforts on OpenSCAD itself.

OpenSCAD works very well with your editor of choice (I use vim), while at the same time trying to make OpenSCAD a first rate text editor would be a huge effort.  Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like most advanced OpenSCAD users aren't using the built-in editor anyway.

Would be better to just write an Eclipse plugin for OpenSCAD syntax.  Far easier than writing a full featured text editor.

This is about 30% of my comments on this mailing list: I think the built-in editor is largely superfluous and time would be better spent elsewhere.

Any chance the rendering can be made multi-threaded?  That would speed things up a bunch.

1. 3D alignment/arrangement. Every tool which has not integrated
alignment functions has failed or doomed to fail. relativity.scad
attempted to do it but not completely.

2. OOP/language. Make it easy for programmers to write. I can’t even
write not so complex function

3. Stop been pathetic. I needed to make a mold out of STL and OpenScad
can’t close the polygons. Tinkercad can do it but not OpenScad?! Fix
it!

4. Blazing fast rendering. Not so complex mixes take forever to render.

No need to focus  any effort at all: it's already done; it just has to be merged in the main branch.

OpenSCAD works very well with your editor of choice (I use vim), while
at the same time trying to make OpenSCAD a first rate text editor would
be a huge effort.? Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like most advanced
OpenSCAD users aren't using the built-in editor anyway.

I strongly disagree. In any case if you don't use the built in editor, what's the reason for opposing the enhancement?

Would be better to just write an Eclipse plugin for OpenSCAD syntax.  Far easier than writing a full featured text editor.

An external editor is always cumbersome to use. I used to do that with OpenSCAD's old version which was using a rather rough text editing component.
