    WYSIWYG Editors - Implementations

    Lukáš Fryč Master

      Since we are going to implement editor component in upcoming major release,

      I have started survey on current implementations which suits our needs,

      now you have possibility to choose which one particular implementation do you like

      or recommend your favorite choices.

       

      I have divided editors to two groups:

       

      • full-featured
        • offers complete editing experience
        • heavy-weight - decreases user experience
        • still might be optimized for simple scenarios
      • lightweight editors
        • offers enough of editing experience (but lacks advanced options)
        • light-weight from their nature
        • needs plug-in when achieving advanced use cases

       

      Let's check it out:

       

      Full-Featured Editors

       

      TinyMCE (Demo, LGPL, enteprise support)

       

      CKEditor (Demo, LGPL, enterprise support)

       

      HtmlBox (Demo, MIT, JQuery-based)

       

      Light-weight Editors

       

      YUI Editor (Demo, BSD)

       

      CLEditor (Demo, MIT/GPL, JQuery-based)

       

      NIC Editor (Demo, MIT)
