editr Folder containing Editr script, style and projects folder

editr.js Editr main script. It's quite clean and have some comments so have fun with digging it.

editr.css Editr style, it contains only some basic style so you can easily customize it.

items Folder containing all your projects(can be configured).

index.html Required file with basic html, used as default file when no files were added for html, css or js.

libs Contains preprocessors and emmet extension.

Dependencies

  • jQuery //ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js
  • ACE Editor //cdn.jsdelivr.net/ace/1.1.01/min/ace.js
  • Emmet extension for ACE //cdn.jsdelivr.net/ace/1.1.01/min/ext-emmet.js
  • Emmet core /editr/libs/ext.emmet.js

You also have to add parsers if you want to support preprocessors:

  • Coffescript /editr/libs/parser.coffeescript.js
  • LESS /editr/libs/parser.less.js

Installation

Copy editr folder to root of your website.

Add this in <head>:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/editr/editr.css">

and this before </body>:

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/ace/1.1.01/min/ace.js"></script>
<script src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/ace/1.1.01/min/ext-emmet.js"></script>
<script src="/editr/libs/ext.emmet.js"></script>
<script src="/editr/editr.js"></script>

Additionally you can add(before Editr script) LESS and CoffeeScript compilers if you're going to use them:

<script src="/editr/libs/parser.coffeescript.js"></script>
<script src="/editr/libs/parser.less.js"></script>

Embed single editor:

<div class="editr" data-item="PROJECT-NAME" data-files-html="index-1.html;index-2.html" data-files-css="!normalize.css;style.css" data-files-js="!jquery.js;script.js"></div>

Run it:

$('.editr').each(function() {
    new Editr({ el: this });
});

This will load project named 'PROJECT-NAME' from 'items/' folder(Editr default value). Files passed in data-files-[html/css/js] will be loaded in a queue. Files with '!' before name will be hidden from Editr navigation bar.

Valid ways to add files

Desciption Code Note
Single file index.html
Multiple files index.html; other-page.html Separated by ;
Hide file from nav !index.html Add ! before name
Read base64 string Ym9keSB7IHdpZHRoOiA1MCU7IH0= Separate multiple strings like normal files
Hide base64 content from nav !Ym9keSB7IHdpZHRoOiA1MCU7IH0=
Use preprocessor on base64 string less:Ym9keSB7IHdpZHRoOiA1MCU7IH0=; You can hide it from nav by adding ! before preprocessor name
Github Gist $4631473, jquery.js, script.js Template: $GIST_ID,FILE-1,...,FILE-N. Preceded by $. Files separated by ,. Add ! before file name to hide it, not before GIST_ID.

Via JavaScript

Name Default Description
view single Editr layout view. Other options: horizontal, vertical, cartesian.
path items Path to folder with projects.
gistProxyURL /editr/libs/proxy.gist.php Path to gist proxy file.
theme monokai ACE Editor theme. If you want to use light theme then also add class editr--light.
wrap false Set to true if you want to wrap lines.
readonly false Make Editr textarea read-only.
callback function (editor) {} Callback triggered after all files are loaded and Editr is ready. Editr object is passed as an argument, use wisely.
parsers Check source You can add custom parsers for preprocessors. Check source for more info.

Load files from Gists

To load files from Gists, you need to configure gist proxy file first, it's really easy.

Go to Authorized Applications page and create new Personal Access Token, name it Editr or whatever you want.

Open editr/libs/proxy.gist.php file, update $username and $api_token variables.

Now make sure that gistProxyURL option is set properly.

API

Please keep in mind that using API functions is most stable in callback which you can configure in JS options. Editr object is passed for it as an argument.

In case, you want to use API functions outside of callback, use them on pure JS objects, not jQuery.

Here's how to make jQuery object a pure js object:

$('.editr')[0]

You can also access all Editr instances using EditrInstances var.

On that object you can use any of API methods:

Name Arguments Description
isReady None Check if Editr is fully loaded
getGists None Return all gists
getFiles type - html, css, js, null Return all files for given type or overall if not passed
getFile type - html, css, js, null
id - File ID
Return single file for given type(extension) and id
setReadOnly value - boolean Set Editr textareas read state
