[đź”´DISCONTINUED] ACE Editor v1.0.1

This module is discontinued

You might want to try InputfieldAceExtended by owzim instead.

What is this?

Better ProcessWire text editor for developers and at least 'a little' tech savvy clients.



  • Syntax highlight your text, for easier preparation of content
  • Nice light, readable theme
  • Supports Textile, Markdown & HTML
  • Mode (language/syntax) is autoselected based on used field's textformatters (last is used)
  • Works with multiple fields on page, each with different settings

Features inspired by iA writer

  • Blue Cursor
  • Focus mode

Install Note

This modules' CSS and JS were built using sass and coffee script. If you wish to keep your PW installation as sleek as possible, go ahead and delete _sass and _ace directories from your install. However, those will be (probably) recreated if you upload via Module Manager.

Built on ACE, so all the legal mumbo-jumbo and credit goes to people that helped built it. Except the details I made better, those are all mine.
