ACE Editor for WP

by daxitude

Overview


This plugin adds an advanced code editor to the post content box on post.php and post-new.php. A third tab is added alongside Visual and HTML modes and you can toggle between the three.

NOTE: Visual Mode tends to eat up most/all of any special formatting. If you want to use ACE I’d suggest disabling Visual mode completely. You can do this easily yourself under Users -> Your Profile -> ‘Disable the visual editor when writing’. You can also do it for all users and for specific post types only. See the accompanying file no-visual.php for an example.

Not all features work in Internet Explorer v8 and earlier.

This does not work in full screen mode. Yet.

Features

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Tabbing
  • Line numbers
  • Auto closing of tags and quotes
  • Line highlighting
  • Default theme is TextMate
  • Fixed-width, soft wrap, adjustable height
  • Remembers your last used mode and loads it up on initial page view

ACE Editor can do quite a bit more. If you have integration ideas, let me hear about it

Todo

  • make height of editor consistent when toggling between modes
  • deal with auto_p? (might help preserve formatting from Visual mode)
  • make it work in full screen mode
  • allow users to set their ACE preferences on their profile screen
