I've been trying to integrate CodeMirror code editor into Wygwam's source view without much success. I have tried using the "wygwam_config" hook as well as adding a config.js file to Wygwam's advanced settings configuration screen which is supposed to enable the code mirror plugin.

Basically I would like this plugin to override the native source view: http://ckeditor.com/addon/codemirror

Is this possible?

That plugin looks like it's for CKEditor 4. Wygwam uses CKEditor 3. I'm not sure if plugins from one version work with the other.

  • Thanks Rob, that might be it. Is there another plugin you know of that might do this? May 30, 2013 at 19:44

  • Oh dude, you rule. Clearly my Googlefoo is not very good, I looked high and dry for this very thing. I will give this a shot, it should do the trick! Thank you! May 31, 2013 at 18:51
  • FYI - Did get this sort of working with some mods to the plugin.js provided on this page and using version 1.0 of CodeMirror found here: codemirror.net/codemirror-1.0.zip There is an issue with the size of the source view in that its much shorter than the editor window, and doesn't resize when you resize the editor or go full screen. I'm gonna put this on the shelf for now. In the future I might just opt to use Wyvern which uses CKEditor4 which would allow me to use the latest version of the CodeMirror plugin.
