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  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
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

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.
