Code Explorer


Code Explorer allows you to:

  • Swiftly browse through the directories in your WordPress installation with an AJAX-driven interface.
  • Conveniently view the code in files with syntax highlighting (using CodeMirror). It covers files commonly used throughout the WordPress development cycle such as PHP, HTML, Javascript, CSS, JSON and Markdown files.
  • Securely edit theme and plugin files using WordPress core’s file editor. Since v1.4.0, you can also create empty files and folders inside the /themes and /plugins folders, which can then be edited.

This way, Code Explorer is a good alternative to a full-fledged File Manager if your primary focus is viewing code in WordPress core, themes or plugins. It may also be useful to enable quick prototyping of themes or plugins in your teaching / workshop.
