Insert Code Options


The languageType option is select box options when you insert code. We set many commonly used programming languages. If you want to set more, you can custom it by languageType:

editor.config.languageType = [
    'Plain text',
    'Shell Session',


You can edit code in grey area after inserting code. We made tab key behavior to be consistent for eliminating different behavior between browsers. You can use languageTab option to set "typing the characters" of tab key. The default value is four full-horn spaces.

editor.config.languageTab = '    '

The languageTab option decide to tab behavior within pre area.
