Better code editor

The current code editor feels more like a simple textarea with a bit of code highlighting. It could be improved with e.g. Ace (ace.c9.io/) or similar.
With the current editor I'd rather copy & paste my code to my local editor, make the changes there and copy & paste it back into the textarea.

Loving the new editor, but I miss the ability to make the field larger by dragging the corner, something I usually did when editing the NGINX config, for example. Is it possible to restore this funcationality with the new editor?

Yes, working on it!

It would be very useful to add code completion in monaco editor, under the nginx configuration panel. One monaco plugin like this github.com/jaywcjlove/nginx-editor

Alright, so the monaco editor is now live. Would appreciate if you guys can test the editor for me!

Small status update on this: we have been working on a new code editor 🤩

Monaco editor has been built in, and we're currently working out the small kinks before we release.

Great news, Dennis. Would be great to give the editors also much more space to work in. E.g. in the nginx config editor, a fulscreen mode would be very useful. :)

Each time I have to edit code in the current editor, I wonder when this will be improved. CodeMirror might be a much better alternative, too: codemirror.net/6/

BUMP: I'd love a better editor - just something basic like Rob mentioned below. Tabbing, commenting and a mono spaced font please! (JetBrains Mono ;))

I agree, some basics like tabbing and commenting would be great.
