Hey, just another editor request
I would like to see codemirror as a third option with selectable syntax highlighting (Markdown, HTML, YAML)
Or is there a way to extend that myself?
You could create your own custom field type mapping that uses it.
you thought of everything, did you? Thanks. I will explore this option.
Is that also possible for Site Variables?
Site variables are a little more generic and operate as a name/value only.
I managed to implement Codemirror as custom field. It works great for Markdown fields, config fields (with json or yaml content) or just html.
The steps are laid out here: https://gist.github.com/marcus-at-localhorst/90a5bfa41e5affcb2d664b402d0ecb23 I hope it works.
I would appreciate if you could review the code and maybe point out any potential pitfalls.
Three things are still bothering me and maybe you have an answer:
The error happens here:
I had to set
'ignore_representative' => TRUEbecause else it became a markit up field. How
The Codemirror CSS is the full path to a CDN. I could not point the the CSS to the
jspath in the field setting. Any idea how to do that, without ripping the codemirror.css out of it's original folder?
And since I asked for the editor of site variables - where can I go and change the textfield to my custom textfield? Is that possible?
