Using Ace Editor v1.2.2:

  • Bundle Id: ace-editor:ace-editor-122

Because of how the Ace Editor is implemented, it's not possible to use it via the preferred CommonJS synchronous require. It's only possible to use it in Jenkins by using the asynchronous import (via jenkins-js-modules).

var jsModules = require('jenkins-js-modules');

    .onFulfilled(function (acePack) {
        // 'ace-editor:ace-editor-122' supplies an "ACEPack" object.
        // ACEPack understands the hardwired async nature of the ACE impl and so
        // provides some async ACE script loading functions.
        // Create an "editor" instance on the element having an
        // id of 'acme-editor' ...
        acePack.edit('acme-editor', function() {
            var ace = acePack.ace;
            var editor = this.editor;
            // Use the "addScript" function to add some Ace extensions.
            // See the Ace docs for these.
            acePack.addScript('ext-language_tools.js', function() {
                // Configure the editor instance. See the Ace docs.
                editor.$blockScrolling = Infinity;
                editor.setOption("minLines", 20);
                // Etc ... hook editor events into your app's UI

See the Jenkins Workflow Editor code as an example of how to use this library.
