    Hi,

    it was great for (non-expert) users if there was a user_friendly/easy rules editor (like an IDE - you do not cody AdGuard by hand but get help from a great IDE, including syntax highlighting, references, available commands and/or object.properties etc.pp.).
    Take AdMuncher as example: A rule whichs text actually is Ejwpsrv.com is displayed and entered in AdMuncher Interface as jwpsrv.com [remove scripts with text] ([...] being one entry of a dropdown list):

    It's way easier to learn and the lists way easier to read/interprete, especially for ppl not willing or able to look up a reference list or learn some new ('programming') language.


    Thank you,
    Dolfi

    P.S. I know there is Assistant but that is not an editor but just a help adding very (page) specific rules

    That's a good feature request, but I can't give you an ETA on this.
    It's hard to implement this editor the way I'd like to.

    Good example on how to make it user-friendly is http://www.regexr.com/ editor for regular expressions.
