{ } CodeMirror

/* Frequently asked
   questions */

Q: Can I use CodeMirror in my such-and-such project?

A: Yes. The license is short, simple, and permissive.

Q: You said you fixed this-and-this issue, but I'm still seeing it.

A: One possibility is that I screwed up, but a very real alternative is that you're looking at a cached version of the CodeMirror scripts. Because the scripts are loaded into an iframe, the ctrl-f5 you issued on the outer page doesn't always cause them to be reloaded (IE, Opera, and Firefox are the worst offenders here). Clear your cache and re-try.

Q: I can't put content containing </textarea> into CodeMirror!

A: [Web-programming 101] The first </textarea> following a <textarea> tag will close the textarea. This has nothing to do with CodeMirror. Sit down, and spend ten minutes thinking about why HTML-escaping was invented.

Q: I have this huge chunk of code that does not work, can you debug it for me?

A: Nope. If you can't be bothered isolate your problem in 20 lines of code or less, I can't be bothered to think about it.

Q: How do I submit patches for CodeMirror?

A: Preferred way is to create a fork on github, add your patch, and send me a pull request. Diffs (against the latest version!) by mail are also cool.
