While trying to figure out how to better integrate CodeEditor (w/ Ace editing widget) into WikiEditor based on the existing iframe mode, I found that there's some WikiEditor-specific hardcoding still in the jquery.textSelection module:
var context = $(this).data( 'wikiEditor-context' ); var hasIframe = typeof context !== 'undefined' && context && typeof context.$iframe !== 'undefined'; // ... retval = ( hasIframe ? context.fn : fn )[command].call( this, options );
It looks like for now, to work with $.textSelection I'll have to pretend to be the WikiEditor iframe plugin. Ideally we probably want something that's not specific to WikiEditor, so it can be used on any textarea-alike that can provide some sort of context functions for the textSelection plugin.
