External code editor support

The Crayta code editor is a window within Crayta itself, where you can edit all script and widget files within your game. Currently you have to use this code editor to write the code (although you can write it somewhere else and paste it in). Some users may prefer to be able to link another code editor, like Visual Studio Code, and write in there (in case they have useful extensions there, want to code on another monitor, or simply prefer that coding environment).

This feature request is for allowing an external code editor to be linked to your Crayta editor, so you can edit your code in 3rd party software such as Visual Studio Code. It is worth noting that there are additional complexities to this, because Crayta supports fully collaborative coding (like using a Google Doc, but for code) between creators, so this would need to be factored in.
