Codepress would have been a great tool, especially now when browsers are getting faster. Codepress is no longer under active development and therefore the links below may or may not work.
It offers a good number of options which include language support and line numbers to the wonderful benefit of syntax highlighting.
- Line numbers supported.
- Shift from codepress fancy editor to regular textarea with ease.
- Instead of textarea, pre tags will work too.
- Auto-complete features (untested).
- Read only option.
- Easy install?
If you go to Codepress.org, you get nothing. I found this by typing codepress into google and getting someone’s extracted version! The zip file is still up on SourceForage though. I hate when these kind of projects go under though. It had merit. Ajaxian even posted about it in 2007, but nobody since said it has died.
