CustomEditor issue

So sorry to bother. I found we have already support CustomEditor API, but how to set “priority” in package.json.

package.json in my extension like this:

“customEditors”: [


            "viewType": "xxxx.xxxx",

            "displayName": "Open with my Editor",

            "selector": [


                    "filenamePattern": "*.xxx"



            "priority": "option"



It works in vscode. But in Theia, the file is always opened by custom editor.

I want open code editor when priority is “option”. :grinning:
