EditArea is a JavaScript-based code editor for browser textareas. Features include:

  • Code highlighting
  • Browser tab-key override for proper tabbing in the textarea
  • Full-screen mode
  • Find & replace w/ regex support
  • Multiple undo/redo

soo_editarea provides easy integration of EditArea into Textpattern. (Well, pretty easy: there are a few steps involved.)


You can set plugin preferences for:

  • Syntax language for Page & Form editing, allowing custom syntax file
  • Source path, making it easier to share one EditArea installation across multiple sites
  • Various EditArea options (tooltip language, font size & family, &c.)
