Feedback on TinyMCEContrib

I like this editor a lot more than Kupu, and I think it's a strong candidate to replace KupuContrib in the release. However it needs someone to do some formatting (CSS and HTML) work on it first.

Thank you for contributing this contrib. It looks very promising. Since it is based on WysiwygPlugin, does it inherit the same limitations on TML > HTML > TML roundtrip?

Hi, I tried to install the contrib, but had no success. When I use the edit link with skin=tinymce attached, the editor shows up, but instead of the topic text %WYSIWYG_TEXT% appears. I think the problem is the contrib is unable to use the WysiwygPlugin code. Can anybody help me out? Thanks a lot in advance. best c

Peter, yes.

Sorry Carlo - I know the TinyMCE integration needs more work. I started on a TinyMCEPlugin, which is a much better and closer integration, but got diverted onto paying work. If I ever get a sponsor, I will return and finish it. Until then, I can only advise you use Kupu.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 25 Apr 2007

Crawford, can you specify what kind of formatting needs to be done? I would give it a try if I knew what to format...

stupid question: how likely is it that you find a sponsor so that all that formatting work that needs to be done isn't for nothing?

The TinyMCEContrib is a SovereignPosture application, a mode of editing we have christened WordInABrowser. That means it has its own top-level template. At the moment that template is absolutely minimal; it just presents the editor, and has no "wikification". Someone needs to take that template, and do the work to customise it so it's appropriate for editing TWiki pages. For example, some TinyMCE features might be emphasised, others removed, pattern skin styles might be applied etc etc.

My personal goal is to move the editor to a more embedded, AjaxLike, role, which is what the plugin aims to do. Unfortunately I haven't had any time (or motivation) to work on it.

w.r.t a sponsor; your guess is as good as mine.
