    Not sure about practicality, but certainly a clever little hack you've got there. Consider me impressed haha

      Haha, I was not sure of its usability either, it was just a test at the beginning, but with a little of practice it surprisingly help me to go a little faster on some points

      I forgot to say that I wrote some helpers on the controller with a Tippex pen

      Oh yeah, a very interesting use case! Physical interfaces are so pleasant to use. We should integrate them more often, although they are sometimes a little bit cumbersome.

    I love this. I can actually see a tablet side-app for an IDE being a cool idea to make the hardware easier.

      Yes it would be a great idea, a touchable interface to edit our CSS like in interface design software. I dreamed for this 3 years ago.

      I started creating an interface to display and create my React + CSS components (really simple role) : https://github.com/dimitrinicolas/cmi It is now deeply deprecated... I abandoned this project because I changed my front-end organization and I did not know enough about CSS manipulation in Javascript through PostCSS.

      I promise you that I will warn you if I develop this touchable tool.

    Using those sliders to adjust values would be so good if you could render the code in real time and see the changes you're making.

      Yes it would be so nice, unfortunately it will not be possible through an atom package but more through an outside extension that could communicate with atom and a web interface displaying React components. A complex thing but would be great! This concept can refer to Mattan's comment.
