This plugin adds the source editing mode to CKEditor. It allows you to modify the editor output in the HTML format.
Note: If you want to show the editor source in inline editor, install the Source Dialog plugin. If another plugin generates editor output data format other than HTML, like e.g. the BBCode plugin, the source editing area will display that format.
This is an official plugin provided and supported by CKEditor developers.
The recommended way to install all CKEditor add-ons is to create a custom build by using Online builder. To do that, click the Add to my editor button on the plugin page. When you are done, click the Build my editor button on the right side of the page to go to Online builder.
Note: This add-on is already selected to be a part of your current build.

pluginsfolder of your CKEditor installation. Example:
