A miracle extension, but ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars


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

/Applications/Vim.app

/Applications/Vim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim

open -a Vim (which works from a bash shell)

/usr/bin/open -a Vim

/usr/bin/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/
