- <p>This is a project aiming to create a CodeMirror-style component
- without using an IFRAME. CodeMirror 1, with its editable frame,
- still works pretty well but...</p>
-
- <ul>
- <li>the lack of control over the actual frame content makes some things really hard to do and/or slow</li>
- <li>the frame makes the API unnecessarily awkward—it has to load asynchronously, and, for example, can't be moved around the DOM</li>
- <li>editable elements are a shady area of browser functionality that is full of bugs</li>
- <li>(the same goes for controlling selection in arbitrary DOM structures)</li>
- <li>some of the design decisions I made in the original implementation make things slower than they have to be</li>
- <li>the complexity of the code, both from work-around cruft and from the inherent trickiness of having the DOM be your data representation, make it hard to modify at this point</li>
- </ul>
-
- <p>So this is a from-scratch implementation, using non-editable
- DOM elements for presentation, and a hidden textarea for input and
- local cursor motion. It aims to be:</p>
-
- <ul>
- <li>really small</li>
- <li>simple to use (almost no custom keybindings)</li>
- <li>so generic that it can be embedded everywhere</li>
- <li>fast enough to work with huge files (on modern browsers)</li>
- </ul>
-
- <p>One thing it won't do is support line-wrapping. I've spent a
- few days investigating this, and had to conclude that the slowdown
- and increased flakiness of supporting line-wrapping isn't going to
- be worth it.</p>
