A free, highly customizable text and code editor extension for your browser.

Image from store Text Editor
Description from store 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).

  • (2023-04-13) 息子運命: How about native terminal from OS that Chrome browser was installed?, since looking for an alternative for VS Code, but can run offline on Chrome Extension
  • (2023-03-09) Skeletial ([ BIG SHOT ]): Amazing extension if you want to get some work done on a chromebook. A lot of times I'm sitting in study hall, bored and wasting time, but then I open this up and I'm able to easily get some work done on my websites. Although the real reason I gave it five stars was because the matrix theme is better than any other theme that any other text editor provides. One tiny suggestion I have is the option to toggle between the bigger button gui and the old one, but other than that, I would give this 6 stars if I could!
  • (2023-02-16) Christophe Hollebeke: I do webdevelopment on my Chromebook for years. Normal i used Caret-editor, but it's not update anymore and have not a lot of functionality, so after searching a lot of time, don't found a good alternative, so last time using VSCode (linux), but this is not ChromeOS friendly and drain my battery (linux/Crostini). Until now, trying TextEditor, and works very well. Okay it missed some functions like Format Document/Beautifying and replace text, but is a good candidate to replace my 'old' Caret-editor and works nicely in ChromeOS. There only a few IDE's on ChromeOS, and the most are outdated or have a lot of bugs, TextEditor is at this moment my favorite. Hope see more functions in the future. Very good work! I like it :-)
  • (2022-10-18) Ulrich Reinert: Very helpful, i like it.
  • (2022-04-24) Robert M. Papillion: It's just what I needed: Open an existing text file from a local drive or create one from scratch. Save the text file to a local drive.
  • (2022-02-23) David Wilson: Really liking this so far! Hope to see this continue to be supported.
  • (2021-12-01) Skelly: Everything is great!!! The only thing I need is being able to type in Lua, that's it!
  • (2020-09-02) Naol Fekadu: Exactly what I'm hoping to find
  • (2020-07-25) Pierre Fortier: I like it. I wish (1) it could open in a tab and (2) it could enable code folding.
  • (2020-02-04) Luciano Raffaelli: Can't believe the app opens half-window, and can't be resized. Unistalled immediately
  • (2019-12-04) Ben: Does not save to windows 10 pro pc properly, lost a lot of notes and contents!
  • (2019-10-25) Clifford Slocombe: Does not auto save or prompt on exist for unsaved changes - lost work, gave up.
  • (2019-07-29) Yao King: how to open this extension as a new tab in chrome, not as a standalone window?
  • (2019-06-08) Kelechi Mba: Everything about it seems fine. My only query is that there is not a mode for Java specifically which is different to JavaScript, so when I want to save the file it's preset to JavaScript which I have to manually change. Also it seems for me that when I click the "Save" button nothing happens and I have to continually keep on clicking the "Save As" button whenever I want to save an updated file.
  • (2019-05-16) 雷雨: Looks good, like atom.
  • (2019-05-10) Mc Spam: It's an easy application to use, it also allows me to copy code snippets and quickly locate opening and closing brackets, plus it's distraction-free and shows up every time I log myself into a Chrome browser... What more could I ask for?
