Description from store Text Editor is a full-featured text & code editor extension for your browser. This extension 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 which includes all the options for this app. Note 1: since Text Editor is an extension, it does NOT have access to the local files on your machine. It only has access to the files in the default download folder; this is why the add-on needs "downloads" permission. If you want Text Editor add-on to access all files and folders on your machine, please install the app version (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/text-editor/hbjagijnlgmaajchnpndfodiejdaoheh). Note 2: currently, Text Editor supports all the keyboard shortcuts for the Sublime text editor only. Moreover, it also supports more than 10 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).

  • (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?
