August 21st, 2013

ACE X Markdown EditorAsikart Markdown Editor helps you writing text in well-known markdown syntax, and render to HTML in front-end article.

This editor integrate “ACE syntax highlight editor” and “MarkItUp tags insert editor”, easily edit plain text. In the front-end, using “PHP Markdown Extra” to render markdown syntax, which provide extended features from origin markdown.

And the syntax highlighter plugin is “highlight.js”, perfectly integrate with Markdown Extra.

I have been looking for a Joomla! Markdown Editor with syntax highlighter, text indent and word wrap for a long time, but there are no one is that what I want. So after few days hard working, I integrate ACE with MarkItUp, I can easily edit plain-text document in Joomla!

It is a FREE extension, enjoy it.

– ACE & MarkItUp editor
– Once upload and install 2 plugins.
– 29 ACE themes.

– Automatic convert insert link & image code from Joomla! core editor-xtd buttons as markdown code.
– You can just using Asikart Markdown as a HTML editor.
– Because Markdown can’t set style on images & links, we add the “ARTICLE PRETTIFY” functions to auto set image alignment, max width, add img & table classes and force link open new window.
