Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality Code Coverage

The original text editor app for Nextcloud, based on Ace.


  • Syntax highlighting
  • Autosave
  • Syntax checking
  • Responsive design (optimised on mobile and desktop)


Simply copy the files_texteditor folder into the apps directory and enable the app within the Nextcloud settings.


To use the editer, click on a supported file within the Files app and the file will be loaded into the editor. Saving is automatic, but can also be triggered manually with Ctrl+S or Cmd+S.

Preview apps

Apps can add side-by-side previews to the app for certain file types by using the preview api

OCA.MYApp.Preview = function(){

OCA.MYApp.Preview.Prototype = {
     * Give the app the opportunity to load any resources it needs and prepare for rendering a preview
    init: function() {
     * @param {string} the text to create the preview for
     * @param {jQuery} the jQuery element to render the preview in
    preview: function(text, previewElement) {

OCA.Files_Texteditor.registerPreviewPlugin('text/markdown', new OCA.MYApp.Preview());

For styling of the preview, the preview element will have the id preview and the className will be set to the mimetype of the file being eddited with any slash replaced by dashes.

e.g. when editing a markdown file the preview element can be styled using the #preview.text-markdown css query.
