Lately it seems like Impromptu has been growing at a pretty rapid pace, and much of the reason behind it are community contributions and the fact that I’m using it nearly every day. I realize there are pro’s and con’s to moving at a fast pace, which is why I’ve done my best to maintain backwards compatibility. That being said I’m taking suggestions on a 2.7 release. I’ve already had a few suggestions, and a few features I want to add myself. Feel free to add to the list, and we’ll see how the fit in.

  • $.prompt.getCurrentState() – a method to return the current state being shown. I’m not sure yet whether to return the entire state(including buttons), or just the message area.
  • $.prompt.getCurrentStateName() – would return a string, the name of the current state being shown.
  • option.timeout – an option that would automatically close the prompt after X milliseconds(maybe after X seconds.. who knows..)
  • option.url – an option to GET content from a remote file.

Also if all goes well, there might be an awesome new example/project using Impromptu in the near future. But I can’t tell you what it is yet! ;)
