Hello there,

Is there any good online web based code (text) editor with syntax highlighting for different languages (C,C++,PHP, etc) and auto-completion .Or, with at least one of that options (better if both, especially auto-completion)? Seems that the results from gooogle aren't helping me so much.

Thanks

Other suggestions

That's pretty much it, there aren't a lot of full-featured web-based editors. They's slim pickin's as it were.

Here is a comparison:

This is one I'm familiar with:

CodeMirror - http://marijn.haverbeke.nl/codemirror/

Used by Yahoo! and Google so it is safe to say it must work pretty well. The license is very flexible, you can use it for commercial projects.

It is easy to extend, so you could add code completion. Let me know if you do, I'm also working on a project using a web based code editor.

With speed of JavaScript execution on browsers increasing dramatically browser based code editors will be comparable to desktop based editors.
