Editrrr

Pimping textareas with editor features.

Editrrr was heavily inspired by Behave.js, so parts of this readme will be similar as well.

What?

Editrrr is a lightweight library for adding IDE style behaviors to plain text areas, making it much more enjoyable to write code in.

  • Supports IE10+, Edge, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera
  • No Dependencies
  • Hard and Soft Tabs
  • Auto Open/Close Paranthesis, Brackets, Braces, Double and Single Quotes
  • Auto delete a paired character
  • Overwrite a paired character
  • Multi-line Indentation/Unindentation
  • Automatic Indentation
  • Move lines up/down
  • Duplicate lines

Install

npm install editrrr

Example Setup

Javascript

import Editrrr from 'editrrr';

// create an instance (with the defaults)
const editrrr = new Editrrr({
  textarea: null,
  replaceTab: true,
  softTabs: true,
  tabSize: 2,
  autoOpen: true,
  overwrite: true,
  autoStrip: true,
  autoIndent: true,
  continueList: true,
  moveLine: true,
  duplicateLine: true,
});
  • textarea: Textarea element to apply the behaviors to
  • replaceTab: If set to true, replaceTab does three different things:
    • Pressing the tab key will insert a tab instead of cycle input focus.
    • If you are holding shift, and there is a full tab before your cursor (whatever your tab may be), it will unindent.
    • If you have a range selected, both of the above rules will apply to all lines selected (multi-line indent/unindent)
  • softTabs: If set to true, spaces will be used instead of a tab character
  • tabSize: If softTabs is set to true, the number of spaces used is defined here. If set to false, the CSS property tab-size will be used to define hard tab sizes.
  • autoOpen: If any of the following characters are typed, their counterparts are automatically added:
    • ( adds )
    • { adds }
    • [ adds ]
    • " adds "
    • ' adds '
  • overwrite: If you type a closing character directly before an identical character, it will overwrite it instead of adding it. Best used with autoOpen set to true
  • autoStrip: If set to true, and your cursor is between two paired characters, pressing backspace will delete both instead of just the first
  • autoIndent: If set to true, automatic indentation of your code will be attempted. Best used with autoOpen set to true
  • continueList: If set to true, Markdown lists (and GFM style task lists) are continued when pressing enter
  • moveLine: If set to true, lines can be moved up and down using alt+up/down
  • duplicateLine: If set to true, lines can be duplicated using shift+alt+up/down
