It’s now possible to set a data selector (keys separated by dots, like
foo.bar, much like JSON path identifiers) with command-line
directly inside the application, by pressing
CTRL-W and typing the
This triggers the selection of the “name” to be used for each array item, instead of the integer (which remains as a default value):
This should enhance the user experience when using dew to look at many items, because it will be easier to switch between the ones of interest instead of being forced to remember their integer identifiers.
