Getting to work with CodeMirror

Recently on Hackernews I found an interesting link. It pointed to RubyFiddle. The site is really nice, but my favourite bit was the editor.

By then I had already guessed they hadn't done it themselves so I investigated (looked in the source..) and found they're using CodeMirror. I had heared about CodeMirror before but I never really liked online IDEs. But this editor really caught my eye so I decided to try the most basic setup.

Turns out, it's really simple! It's just 1, in words one, line of Javascript! (Plus basic HTML)


That is all that is needed. Thanks to Marijn Haverbeke for such a great online editor.

Below is a demo of it:
