Improvements to

Just wanted to give an update on some improvements I recently made to

  • Updated to the latest Ace editor
  • Switched to markdown mode by default instead of text mode. This provides small improvements in the color scheme to show where the markup would be
  • Added a handler for the :w vim command: This will save the contents of your bigvimbox to local storage so that if you close the tab or your browser restarts you won’t lose your notes.

Since I do my regular development in Vim, it’s second nature for me to always hit :w when I’m done editing something. The problem was in, I would hit that and nothing would happen; it felt very unfulfilling, so I “scratched my own itch” so to say.
