Scratchpad can haz Orion
This weekend, the incomparable Mihai Sucan put the finishing touches on the Orion Source Code editor integration pieces and attached it to the Scratchpad. Orion is an open source code editor project that IBM is building. See Mihai’s blog post for some details and a link to an earlier demo video. It’s currently turned off via preferences, but if you’d like to play with it in Firefox Nightlies, (or later this week, Aurora) set:
devtools.editor.component to orion in about:config.
… and then open a Scratchpad (with Shift-F4 or via the menu item in the Web Developer submenu).
Update! John via the comments mentioned that if you have already opened a Scratchpad, you will need to restart your browser for this change to take effect. Thanks for the note!
It’s currently disabled because there are some outstanding issues for RTL locales and some accessibility concerns. We hope to address those issues with upstream contributions wherever possible — Mihai’s an Orion contributor now. Eventually, this preference will become the default.
