WP Code Editor Plus

Code Editor, Syntax Hilighter, Code Completion, and usability rolled into my version of an IDE. Created to mimic the features of popular desktop softw


First release of my first public plugin -- Biggest challenge is validating the readme.


Thanks to pothi for identifying a display issue where the editor's internal divs inherited a 190px margin-right. Now I have something to add to my Kvetch. Also important in this release is a known "issue" or feature that doesn't appear to be working.

I have attempted to integrate jQuery UI's Resizable to the editor so users can size their own editor as well. It produces no JS errors, and created the nested divs and CSS classes necessary, but does not resize. I have used wp_enqueue_script() to queue up jQ-ui-core, ui-widget, ui-mouse and ui-resize. My guess is it is an inherited style that is hiding the resize handle. If someone wishes to contribute a few lines of CSS to make the handle show up in the right place, that would be wonderful. It should be fixed in v.1.2.


Rebrand! The project has gained direction and scope and is no longer just for highlighting syntax, but now going the direction of an entire IDE replacement able to do anything you can online that you could do offline, or via ssh. I have always been a firm believer that "one should never edit code directly on the server" -- My goal is now to change that mindset, turning the production server/webpage into a production environment as well as a development and staging environment. Through revisions, output buffers, the sick hooks everywhere... why not. If theme test drive can do it with themes, why can't there be an all inclusive web based IDE. (Death to Desktop Applications! Viva platform independant code!).


Open files with ajax, multiple windows with daggability, added 12k of graphics and 24k more JavaScript. Added ability to donate.


Fixed the issue preventing the editing of themes that were not currently active, as well as added plugin selection. Improved minimize & restore functionalities so minimized and restored windows were not covering eachother. The development has been slow due to little feedback and no coffee, dispite the execellent written reviews, being placed on top-10 lists and the ratings. But open source is not all about the donations. I have really enjoyed creating this plugin, and may actually make .windowize() into a jQuery plugin as well.


Added a "task bar" container fixed at the bottom of the window to hold the minimized code windows.


Added quick-open feature within an hour of the request. I really enjoy when people get involved and find ways to make the application better. Special thanks to Ovidiu for the request http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wp-code-editor-plus-feature-request
