Incompatibility with CodeMirror

Hey there!

I am a frequent wiki editor (such as on Wikipedia). I noticed, that LT is no longer compatible with an extension called “CodeMirror”. It is basically an extension to provide syntax highlighting in an editor – specifically the 2010 Editor on all MediaWiki projects (the software driving a wiki).

I remember LT was working before in this combination, now it doesn’t.

Here’s how you can test it for yourself:

These are the mentioned extensions:

I use the LT Add-on in Chrome 113.0.5672.126.

Thanks for the report. I’ve opened an issue for our developers. I cannot make any promises about whether/when this will be fixed, though, as it seems to be quite specific (CodeMirror without syntax highlighting seems to be fine).


Hi @dnaber,
We have run in the same problem. Do you have any updates?

The internal issue is closed already, do you still have the issue when using the latest add-on (8.0.6)?

Hello, it seems that I have the same problem. I also use CodeMirror on my own custom app, and I configured it to enable external spellcheckers, but LanguageTool don’t seems to work.

I use the firefox extension, and it seems that it’s not yet on version 8, so that’s maybe the cause of the problem ? Is there any ETA for the update of the firefox extension ?

Thank you !
