ep_cursortrace

Show cursor/caret movements of other users in real time

Show the caret position of authors on your Etherpad um, Pad.

Important: A caret is not a cursor, a cursor is what your mouse uses.. A caret is the little stick used in a word processor. The more you know....

  • See where the author is in really real time
  • Click on an authors colored icon block to follow that author as they move around a pad
  • I needed a third feature so let's go with free NFC Ring for anyone who spots this crazy "feature"
  • Avoid race condition where the ACE object is sent and the cursor but the cursor arrives before the event

  • Add a buffer

  • Show the stick on the right when the righter px of the span is greater than the total width of outerdocbody IE the name doesnt fit on the screen

  • Test Coverage

  • Show the authors location (When in follow mode) even if the author doesn't type anything (means storing authors last known locations)
