What is the Advanced Editor?
The advanced editor is a dedicated, code-only editor. Instead of having to wait for a web page to load in, and see it refresh every time you need to make tweaks/updates, the advanced editor is a more minimalist, straightforward way to build coded tests.
Key features of the Advanced Editor
The advanced editor comes with the following key features, which differentiate it from the Visual Editor, and in some cases from any other tool on the market too.
The Optimize Build Framework
While you can use this anywhere, the advanced editor has the Optimize Build Framework built into the workflow.
This is a templated, structured and supported way of building your test – see more details here: https://help.webtrends-optimize.com/optimize/developer-docs/web/optimize-build-framework/
For more details on the Apache Velocity engine, see here: https://velocity.apache.org/engine/1.7/user-guide.html
A small feature, but one that’s incredibly useful. Developers iterate on their code quickly and often – the quick save button saves your changes within a couple of seconds to the Optimize platform, and this is distributed to our servers with sub-second latency making it instantly available – no “waiting on CDN” anymore.
We have an array of developer docs that will support users particularly in the advanced editor. You can explore this category of help pages from here: https://help.webtrends-optimize.com/optimize/developer-docs/
