Until the editor is not totally complete - cut & copy & paste, select, syntax highlighting, it would be nice to be able to use an external editor. (For example notepad++ or something similar.)
Here's one way to do it easily.
There's a folder X that FoldIt can access.
In that folder you have .lua scripts.
By clicking a button in FoldIt or (it does it automatically),
it loads all those scripts into your cookbook.
Also it adds as first line "--external". So it can later delete
them when it reloads scripts from folder X.
The second way:
You get a list of scripts in that folder X and you can
run them directly (that means does not load into cookbook) and
every time you run it, it loads the script from folder X.
