Keybindings for textarea controls


This plugin introduces new keyboard bindings in text areas for an improved wiki text editing experience:

  • Tab: Indent the current or selected lines of text.
  • Shift+Tab: De-indent the current or selected lines of text.
  • Enter in unordered lists: Create a new list item on the same indentation level.

Also when pasting a copied string it is automatically converted to TracLinks syntax.
