It would be great having the possibility to open a folder like a 'project' folder.

Then, we could slide the left charmbar to see the folder's structure as a tree to navigate and open any file of this folder.

Sublime text editor is a great sample of what I am talking about.

Do you  have any idea when this feature will be added to your product ?

I am heaviliy using your app for coding when travelling and I am really missing it as I am often working on projects with lots of files. File opening method offered in all editing apps is not so easy to use. I would really prefer choosing to open my project folder and having a kind of window with a tree structure where to select files I want to edit.

Hi Benjamin,

Sorry but we don't have a timeline for big features as Code Writer is something we work on in our free time.  That is a feature we would like to see eventually though.  If we made Code Writer open source sometime in the future, would you be interested in contributing to the project?
