TYPO3 Ace Editor


Source code editor for convenient editing of files in the backend

The ACE Editor extension replaces the standard TYPO3 source code editor in Fileadmin and allows easy editing of your files. The files are called up within a backend module and can then be edited as desired - even the classic save command  "CTRL / CMD + S" is available.



  • The files must be included in [SYS] [textfile_ext] otherwise it defaults to the standard editor. If additional file types are required, file name extensions can easily be added via the Install Tool.
  • The associated JavaScript libraries are external resources and are not maintained by us.
  • This extension is only available as an open source product.


This TYPO3 extension is based on the Open Source Project Ace. The Ace Editor is an embeddable code editor written in JavaScript.
