Subject [allura:tickets] #8260 Codemirror on mobile devices doesn't work
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2018 15:00:16 GMT
Yea I've noticed that too, super annoying.  Sometimes it worked for me though, so at the time
I wasn't able to get a good idea of what the problem was.

We should try upgrading SimpleMDE (a layer on top of CodeMirror).  It hasn't been updated
for a while, but there is a fork at https://github.com/Inscryb/inscryb-markdown-editor  We
could also try updating just the CodeMirror part (that might require doing a simplemde build
ourselves, I think I did that in the past).

Looking at CodeMirror bug reports, I've found https://github.com/codemirror/CodeMirror/issues/5245
which seems to describe the problem, and is still an open issue.

So might be best to detect the browser somehow (that is always tricky) and do a plain textarea.
 It'd be unfortunate to lose the toolbar and syntax highlighting, but better than typing not
working.

I love to write documentation on my Smart phone on the run. Currently this is not possible
with Codemirror, as it doesn't handle a mobile Keyboard correctly.

* spaces are not handled or doubled
* some words are magically duplicated sonstiges,... 

This affect all tools, as codemirror is widely used. Even this ticket is written in google
keep and copied to the ticket ;)

A possibility to disable codemirror, or an automatic fallback to a plain textarea would be
great. I personally don't use the toolbar at all, so I wouldn't miss that feature.
