I started working with CodeMirror 6 in July '22 and have been very impressed by its API! However, I found that the learning curve was pretty steep. After spending many hours staring at the docs and source code, I felt like I had something to offer, so I wrote up an introductory article to CM6. The article covers (with practical examples):
- Structure & lifecycle
- CodeMirror “primitives”
The article isn’t meant to be a replacement for the system guide, but is a more in-depth look at some of these concepts and an attempt to explain them in a simple way. Hopefully this is useful!
Note: I know that this is self-promotion, but my intent is to help folks new to CM6 have a resource to help them get started (the resource I wish I would have had). From what I can tell, this discussion board is the best place to share this information. If this is disallowed, I’m happy to delete this post.
