This is implemented and working nicely however I'm marking this as a breaking change because:

  • To enable CodeMirror TinyMCE plugin, the tinyMceConfig.config file needs to be updated with the correct codemirror path like:
    <config key="codemirror">
      "indentOnInit": false,
      "path": "../../../../lib/codemirror", 
      "config": {
      "jsFiles": [
      "cssFiles": [
  • The CodeMirror major version has changed so if anyone is relying on some old quirky behavior, that behavior might not exist anymore
  • We're not going to be shipping with the same CodeMirror files we were shipping with before, they are now shipped with the other js libs inside of /umbraco/lib/codemirror (since we are using bower for dependencies)
