NOTE

Due to updates in both Chrome and Node.js TextareaConnect/Server is currently broken. Also I'm currently bit busy with my other projects so this will have to wait for now. Pull requests are very welcome thou!

TextareaConnect

TextareaConnect a proof of concept for creating It's All Text! clone for Chrome. Since Chrome API won't allow spawning new external processes TextareaConnect relies on separate http-server, TextareaServer, for starting the external editors.

TextareaConnect & TextareaServer are written using Node.JS, CoffeeScript, node-inotify, Socket.io and Chrome extension API.

Changelog

0.1.3

  • Flash textarea when it is updated
  • Show error message on edit request if the server is down
