    Project mention: How to add a placeholder to Monaco editor | | 2023-02-07

    I was playing around with the Monaco editor and I wanted to add a placeholder to it. Just like the placeholder in VSCode. I couldn't find any documentation on how to do it, so I decided to write this post. I will be using the Monaco editor in React, but the same concept can be applied to any other framework.

  • ace

    Ace ( Cloud9 Editor)

    Project mention: The ShnooTalk programming language | | 2022-11-10

    The frontend uses the ace editor for syntax highlighting and then sends all the "text" you have typed to a python backend. The backend then writes all the text to a temporary directory and calls the compiler using subprocess (something similar to os.system).

  • jsoneditor

    A web-based tool to view, edit, format, and validate JSON

    Project mention: Fighting an itemized bill | | 2023-02-02

    I took a quick look at that turquoise guide, seems ok if you’re able to follow it. I was going to suggest googling a JSON editor/formatter like this, you would open the file with that or paste the text and it will convert it to the tree structure that will make it a little easier to navigate. JSON is just a text file, and you can open it with notepad, but I wouldn’t recommend trying to search it that way. Better to use some kind of editor to get it into the tree structure.

  • SimpleMDE

  • ProseMirror

    The ProseMirror WYSIWYM editor

    Project mention: Build Your Own: React, ProseMirror, and Redux | | 2023-02-03

    Last year, while working on Oak, we decided to take a step back and learn, as a team, how the tools we used really worked. In particular, we'd spent years trying to get ProseMirror to play well with React and Redux, but had struggled to reconcile their not-quite-compatible philosophies about DOM and state management.

  • pen

    enjoy live editing (+markdown)

  • sweet.js

    Sweeten your JavaScript.

    Project mention: Pipe Operator (|>) For JavaScript | | 2023-01-20

    Mozilla created SweetJS over a decade ago[0]. It added hygenic macros to JS and I'm sure everyone on the TC39 committee is familiar with it.

    There's a lot to like about it, but macros in such a complicated language as JS are hard to get right. They'd also potentially lead to huge fracturing in the JS ecosystem with different factions writing their own, incompatible macro-based languages.

    Look at JSX for an example. It's actually a subset of a real standard (E4X -- actually implemented in Firefox for a long time), but just one relatively small syntax addition has added complexity elsewhere.

    For example, `const foo = (x:T) => x` is valid Typescript for a generic arrow function, but is an error if your file is using JSX.

    I like the idea of macros, but I suspect they made the right call here.
