Edit tab w/CodeMirror Keyboard Mapping

AstLinux now supports the versatile CodeMirror text editor, implemented in JavaScript for the browser. CodeMirror is now the default text editor within the AstLinux web interface Edit tab, but users may still use the standard HTML editor if they choose.

Note: AstLinux 1.3.7 or later is required

New options can be found under the Prefs tab → Edit tab Options:


Prefs Tab

Unchecking “CodeMirror Editor” will revert back to using the standard HTML editor.

The user may select a “Theme”, the [default] is colored text on a white background.

Tip -> Themes [solarized], [seti-mks] and [zenburn] are worth a look.
