Overview

Write in the browser with your text editor.

Whenever you’re writing more than a little snippet of code anywhere on the web, activate GhostText to open your preferred text editor and enjoy your own development environment. GhostText is a browser extension that connects to your editor via its own extension. Install both extensions and, if necessary, start the GhostText server in the editor’s extension. Supported editors: • Sublime Text • VS Code • Emacs • Vim • Neovim • ACME Editor You can find more information on the "Website" link or contribute on GitHub (You'll find the link on the same website)

I use it with Emacs, the best way is to assign a keystroke to it at chrome://extensions/shortcuts

I love this extension and use it quite a lot. We have lots of web applications where Markdown syntax is recognized and in combination with SublimeText it's a breeze to write documentation 😉 Also when documenting code snippets in issue tickets etc. it's really nice to have a powerful text editor integrated into the workflow.
