CodeMirror Embedded in Wax

The Wax (a web based word processor we are developing) lead dev -Christos Kokosias – yesterday embedded another editor, in the editor. We need this for the PubSweet Book Sprint where we will be including code snippets inĀ  the documentation we create. So we need a nice way to manage that… consequently Christos embedded the CodeMirror code editor into Wax. So it has things like syntax highlighting, line numbering, auto complete etc all built into the code blocks…its pretty cool… below is are two short vids Christos made to show it in action:

 

Pretty cool stuff and extremely useful for writing documentation that includes code…ask yourself… can MS Word or Google Docs do that? #opensourceisbetter
