A editor plugin for textareas for code editing with syntax-highlight and more

A free editor for source code written in javascript. (That is no way a WYSIWYG editor). This editor is designed to edit souce code files in a textarea. The main goal is to allow text formatting, search and replace and real-time syntax highlight (for small text).

This editor is free and freely distributable (released under LGPL and Apache license, choose one). All the creator Christophe Dolivet asks is that he receive credit for his work. he will also enjoy to receive mail to tell if you 're using it, just in order to have an idea of how much this editor is used.

  • Tabulation support (allow to write well formated source code)
