On monitors with fullhd, 2k, and 4k resolutions, the editor window is very small and there is no way to stretch it. Please fix it. I use your plugin in every project. Thank you for a good plugin!

Very nice editor! One thing to add - save current directory between sessions. Thank you!

This plugin is exactly what I was looking for. But I had to add 3 lines of code in plugins/gmace/assets/js/scripts.js to get my scss files highlighted. If you need that too, add this just after line 461: case "scss": editor.getSession().setMode("ace/mode/scss"); break; If needed, you can add support for many other coding languages as "lua", "lisp" or "perl" (have a look at plugins/gmace/assets/js/ace directory). Just add the 3 lines above replacing "scss" by the extension of your choice.
