By Default codemirror supports templateviews as follow TemplateBuildingBlockView PageTemplateView ComponentTemplateView

you may need to modify CodeMirrorExtension.config and tridion-code-mirror-extension.js to support Rich field.


This is definitely possible, by just adding the right code to "Attach" to the source tab of the RTF field within a component. We have done this, so it is possible with the existing version that you have now.

The extension that we modified - I am also trying to make into an Alchemy plugin... but I am not sure if this will be sharable with the community yet (as it is for a client, and I will need to get permission)
