Ace editor for Django admin

Project description

# django-ace-overlay
This is an implementation of the Ace Editor for Django, which uses an overlay to edit code instead of editing it directly. This is particularly useful when you are using a code editor in conjunction with inlines -- which gives you a scrolling window inside a scrolling window, enough to drive a person insane.

By default, all code is visible in the admin as read-only text. Clicking the text opens the editor overlay.
