Awesome extension. I could use your "remove all bugs" option for all my PHP projects ;-) Can I have your babies?
Finally I discovered that Doctor What added hot keys to It's All Text too. Very nice.
Using It's All Text and Emacs I can now easily add XHTML code to my blog comments etc. (Sometimes they are removed, but that is e-life.)
Thanks very much for It's All Text.
I love the way that this Add-on functions for Firefox on OS X. You would think that this is how the browser should behave natively!
This is a great boon to anyone who does any type of writing on the web. The ability to edit and keep responses saved in MS Word is positively joyful. Well done.
As the author wrote, "It's all text" is really a "miracle extension"! Extremely useful for those who want an "real editor", such as vi or emacs, for entering text in "text areas", and for using webmail. In the past I used to avoid webmail at all costs until I discovered two extensions mozex and "it's all text".
I have been using "it's all text" under debian, ubuntu, windows xp without any problems, however more recently I have miserably failed to make it work under Mac OS X. To configure the vim editor for "it's all text", I have tried
open -a Vim (which works from a bash shell)
/usr/bin/open -a Vim
In every single case I received an error message, usually that the path was incorrect, even thought the path does exist.
However regex works without problem under Mac OS X. It was not able to find at the usual site for firefox extensions, but I found it at http://mozex.mozdev.org/
Writing this review to you using Vim is a great joy. This add-on is by
far the most useful I have gotten. Thanks much,
Haven't been using it for long, but this plugin will probably save me at least 2 hours of work in the next few days! Very nice!
This is a wonderful little add-on. Text boxes never offer any serious editing tools beyond copy, cut and paste. Did you ever have a lot to say and tried to type into a cramped little text box? It must be what my dentist goes through every day. I have tested this with Boxer text editor and it works just fine. In fact, this little review is being typed in Boxer. I think this add-on is magic. Don't know how I ever lived without it.
I've been looking for a simpler, more straightforward method for formatting posts in a forum that uses a mix of BBcode and XHTML tags; none of the Fx extensions I've tried could do it just right for all of the tags. Using this extension with RJ TextEd, however, works great. I just had to put .html first in the File Extensions list (and restart Fx) to make it the default file type for the editor (so that it will properly enable the Preview function in the editor), and it works perfectly (for my needs). Coolness.
Aug2009: updated to latest with Fx 3.5.1 - still works great!
Works great and is very useful, especially on websites were text fields are too small sized!
Very good idea, and looks useful. Unfortunately it won't play nice with some greasemonkey scripts that are designed for quick replying and editing of forum posts. When installed together the post always reverts to 'undefined'.
very nice work, couldn't find any alternative add-on that nice (and i tried because i thought this one doesn't function, see below).
a few tips from me: at first, after installation, it kept complaining it can't start my text editor, i had specified the full path and -under windows- the binary certainly needed not be set executable. also tried other editors but with no success. i don't know at what point it started working but now it does (i assume after restarting firefox once more).
my main use case is editing wiki content using a syntax-aware editor, and as may be the case with your editor as well, mine detects the filetype by file extension, so in my editor i've associated ".wiki" with wiki syntax highlighting. afterwards in the add-on settings i replaced ".txt" with ".wiki" - thus text will be stored locally with a ".wiki" extension and my editor will detect the filetype properly.
finally, there seems to be no help available anywhere. ok, haven't really tried to find it but for sure it's not easy to find if it exists. i'd be interested in what some of the settings mean in detail.
Seriously, this is one of the most original and useful plugins. I use this on a regular basis and don't know how I lived without it! Thank you so much!
I was using ViewSourceWith extension for this, and it had a habit of losing the edited text. All Text seems very robust. Thanks for your efforts!
it's really a great add-on. it makes writing long texts so much more comfortable and safe ... thanks a lot!
This allows me to use my favorite text editor - Vim. Thanks!
I really like what this extension does. I only have one problem with it.
I use Stylish to try and expand textareas to 100% and sometimes give a min-height wherever applicable. Sometimes this means finding a way to de-marginalize and remove padding from a parent element. So often this fails to work, that I end up remembering why I love this extension so much.
If I use [class*="textrea"] and modify the width, it changes the edit button, too. I've accidentally created a situation where the edit button was as big as the screen once. Can you please change up the class/id attributes a bit to make this sort of thing less complicated?
Also, there is greasemonkey script or extension out there that allows for saving of textareas either in a temp file or on your drive for safe keeping. I think for a 1.5 you should combine the two somehow.
I tried several extension of this type. This one looks quite good to me. It's the first one that appears to work with asynchronous edit sessions as invoked by vim --remote, or gnuclient etc.
This has saved me on multiple occasions. It works perfectly!
Smashing Idea - Very well implemented.
Simple and intuitive. Gives its functionality when you want it, and stays out of the way when you don't. It's also easy for web and extension authors to maximize its power.
