Orion codeEdit widget 12

Orion codeEdit widget debuted just one year ago in Orion 9.0. Thanks for all the valuable user feed-backs over the past year, now in Orion 12, the widget has been improved a lot on both usability and customizability. We've updated the widget wiki page for the latest features, summarizing user feed-backs  in the FAQ section.

The demo page here shows you two of the biggest improvements in the widget: customize-able editor configurations and fine tuning your web language tooling. In Orion 11.0 we introduced tern project, now this feature is integrated in the widget. In the demo you will see a zoom ruler in each editor, enabled by an editor configuration change. You will also see how the javascript file validations behave differently while live editing the tern project and eslint rule files.

Aside from that, there are other major improvements that are not shown in the demo.
With all the improvements so far, we found it's been much easier for the existing users to consume and customize the widget. We are still improving in other areas so please stay tuned.
