Code editor needs a cursor position indicator

I’m trying to write a bunch of plgins for my favorite archives-- working on europeana right now,
when I try to save a JSON file, it often responds with

“Badly Formed object around character xxx”.

My eyes are bad, and often can’t tell position 663 from position 664…

Perhaps a running character count, or even a mechanism to highlight the offending position would be useful. I’ve taken to cutting and pasting the code into an external editor just to make sense of the error statements.

The request is noted. We’ll consider this for an future release.
