Changing text editors



It would be great if you could choose your own text editor. The default tinyMCE, has some problems.


PS. It would be nice to be able to select your own editor by edting a card, don't know how complicated this is.


1. CKEditor is very nice and stable, it's also already localized in many languages and it autodetects the browser language to display itself in your language. Check it out:


2. WYMEditor is an editor focused on generating perfectly structured XHTML strict code, to conform to the W3C XHTML specifications and to facilitate further processing by modern applications., on


3. YUI library (initially created and still used by Yahoo) it has many modules, including a rich text editor


4. Any suggestions?


Interesting others:   - interesting how you edit the text and you are still on the page doing so.    - clean and simple   interesting normal mode and full mode    super clean and professional   super clean and powerful     really complex and powerful, a little overkill   so simple it hurts :)   - rather oldschool    based off the one above    see examples here    made by 37Signals



List of others:


Fwiw, it would be straightforward to implement a cardtype for one of these and then edit *all+*default and change it to that. There are actually very few places in the code where "Basic" is referred to; almost everything comes from that *all+*default rule. Cardtype and User do both have "include Basic", but that should only take effect on unstructured Cardtype and User cards.


I will say that I edited *all+*default, and the "Something" behavior described in the other ticket still happened, but I think that might be a caching issue?


I would also note that we may consider having different default editors for *structure rules, since it's even more important there than elsewhere that we get rid of the p's.
