What is Text Editor?

Text Editor is a feature-rich text and code editor extension for the Microsoft Edge browser. It's highly customizable, built atop the renowned CodeMirror open-source JavaScript library. It supports over 100 coding languages and features a user-friendly interface with file I/O buttons and options on sidebars. The application leverages the new file system access API, allowing it to open and save files directly to your disk. If your browser doesn't support this API, it uses the download API instead.

Text Editor is a full-featured text & code editor add-on for your browser.

This add-on has plenty of options to adjust and is built on top of the famous CodeMirror open-source JavaScript library (https://codemirror.net/). Once you open the add-on for the first time, you will see a sidebar at the left and an empty text editor at the right. The left sidebar includes file I/O buttons. For example, a button to open file(s) or settings. There is also a right sidebar that includes all the options for this app.

Note 1: This extension uses the new file system access API (https://web.dev/file-system-access/) to open and save files to disk. But, if your browser does not support this new API, it uses the - downloads - API instead to save files to disk in the default download folder (asks for downloads permission when opening the interface).

Note 2: Currently, Text Editor supports three key-maps for famous text editors (i.e. sublime). Moreover, it supports more than 100 coding languages (i.e. JavaScript, CSS, HTML, etc.)

If you have a feature request or found a bug to report, please fill the bug report form in the add-on's homepage (https://mybrowseraddon.com/text-editor.html).
