Feedback on KupuContrib (Kupu WYSIWYG editor)


-- CrawfordCurrie - 03 Dec 2006

Thanks Crawford for externalizing Kupu and for making the WYSIWYG integration more flexible for other editors!

Some feedback:

  1. The screenshot was not attached to the contrib package, I attached it from the package. Make sure the installer copies also the screenshot so that there is a complete contrib in a TWiki where this contrib is installed.
  2. I suggest to escape the link in the heading (avoid link to oneself.)
  3. The contrib needs a SHORTDESCRIPTION for twiki.org. I suggest to add this to the Contrib Info section packaged in HTML comments:
    * Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = WYSIWYG editor integration for Kupu editor
  4. Add Copyright and License rows to the Contrib Info table
  5. The dependencies table breaks the Contrib Info table apart (HTML table needs to be moved inside TWiki table)

I made the changes 2-5 to the contrib topic, please feel free to take this into the next release.

Thanks Peter! The SHORTDESCRIPTION should be there; but I use HTML comments to hide them, usually. I'll check.

Having a problem using KupuContrib. I installed KupuContrib using the KupuContrib_installer. I followed all the settings as mentioned. When I hit the "WYSIWYG" link I get an editor but the editor is completely messed up. I see the toolbar icons but none of the icons act as buttons. Also there are a whole bunch of "Add" and "Cancel" buttons all over the editor and they do not function either. Any help in solving this problem is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Chandu

Hi! I've been working on some improvements for kupu and I'd like to share my work. The main focus was usability but there are also many bug fixes. Some features include:

  • Preview on modal window
  • Advanced editor mode (opens a modal window using AJAX)
  • Wiki links to new page
  • Better Full Screen mode
  • Better layout
  • Tool to insert HRs
I had also to work on WysiwygPlugin to enable some features like Preview and Advanced editor mode. Some fixes in WysiwygPlugin are:
  • Improvements on dealing with TWiki variables
  • %SPAN% was being displayed in empty cells
  • Wiki links for hierarchical webs were including SCRIPTURL{"view"} variable
  • sometimes BR tags were added to the end of itens lines

My doubt is how could I share the code? Should I add the KupuContrib and WysiwygPlugin in this topic? Or should I add a patch in each topic? Or is there another way?

-- EzequielConte - 30 Apr 2007

Ezequiel, sounds good! Please raise reports in Bugs web, attach the patches there (making sure you state which rev of WysiwygPlugin and KupuContrib the patches are based on) and I will review and check in changes to both these contribs. I very rarely read these dev topics. I assume you updated the unit tests for the WysiwygPlugin as well?

-- CrawfordCurrie - 03 May 2007

I saw none of Ezequiel's items in the KupuContrib Bugs database. Are they ready for the next release or were they never submitted?

-- JosMaccabiani - 02 Jun 2007

Sorry, Jos. I'm having no time to work on Kupu by now. But I've released my modified version here: http://certiopensource.blogspot.com/. If someone want to help submitting the changes and reporting bugs,please feel free.

-- EzequielConte - 04 Jun 2007

Notice the type fix on the contrib topic

-- PeterThoeny - 18 Jul 2007

You can also define a list of strings that will be available for insertion in topics ...
It is not clear where you define this. And presumably you need to put Set SOME_VARIABLE. What is this variable?

-- TamsinTweddell - 23 Aug 2007

Just wanna tell you my opinion bout Kupu WYSIWYG its not a bug. When you use it there is a point "Add a new image" this should be "Add a new Attachment" or something similar. Would make it more intuitive for the people. I mean it was easy to change it but for the next download it would be nice to change cause you can attach not only images. Regards

-- GeorgSauseng - 14 Nov 2007

Georg, the Kupu integration is no longer maintained; being replaced by the TinyMCEPlugin.
