Neat

A lot cleaner than "Advanced Code Editor".

WOW!!!
By , for WP 3.8.1

I am truly grateful to the developers of this plugin. I must have died and gone to code heaven :) because this is the best plugin to date that I have found to add to my toolbox.

Just remember when you make changes - backup.

Best wishes to all!

Works as expected, and makes the file editor useful
By , for WP 3.8

Without this plugin, the file editor is little more than a built-in notepad in a browser. With this plugin, the file editor is transformed into a useful programmer's editor.

Why this functionality isn't part of the core at this point, I'll never know, but regardless, this plugin is great.

Thanks, Bryan!

Greatness
By , for WP 3.8

I've started using the built-in editor a lot for quick tweaks to theme displays, and this has made my life much easier. Very thankful!

Live syntax check = Awesome!
By , for WP 3.8

The live Syntax checking and suggestions to help avoid silly errors that can waste time. This plugin goes further than just syntax highlighting. Thanks for this plugin!

Tip: Ctrl+f is search, Ctrl+f twice is find and replace and Ctrl+L is find line number

This might be silly but buttons for these functions and any other functions would be cool..

Simply brilliant
By , for WP 3.8

Even though it's perhaps not always the best workflow to edit files in WordPress, at times it's the best available option.

This plugin is not only helping, it's making it so much easier so it's tempting to use it all the time instead of updating files on one's local computer and then upload the updated files. That risk might also be the only downside!

I really recommend this to anyone. It turns the editor into a really useful code editor. I promise, you'll install it in all your sites if you try it!

Perfect!

This plugin fits into the WP dashboard seamlessly and makes the code editor far more useful. The Ace editor that it uses is incredibly powerful and offers tons of features that make you feel like you're in a proper IDE. I generally wouldn't recommend editing code directly in the dashboard, but for those times when you have no choice this plugin is definitely the best way to go.
