Add multiline dependencies list in game.project

#1

In current game.project dependencies list declared in one line with comma separator

It is hard mergeable and no comfortable to see changes in VCS. Especially with 10+ extensions

Is it possible to add multiline values to game.project to make it diff friendly?
But, honestly, I don’t imagine best way to implement this in .ini type file

This has been requested internally as well, but not enough users have experienced enough pain with this to warrant a fix. Now with more and more native extensions and dependencies it might be worth looking into.

+1 my pain in manually editing in a text file out some dependencies when making builds when I want to build with bob directly and not open the editor to edit the dependencies.

At least I can recommend to people if you do this too to put the ones you typically edit out last in the list.

+++++1 for this reason too.

:thinking:

Problem is this is an INI file right?

Solution is to define a dependencies file in the game.project, and then use a different format in that other file?

Definitly agree with this.
Either the ability to link to a different file or add the ability to have the .project as a yml file or similar (which I bet would be a lot of work?).
