How to integrate a stronger markdown editor other than the basic one


(xiasummer) #1

This markdown editor integrated in Discourse is not strong enough.
You see, we cannot write tables easily, cannot write latex formulas easily.

Look at the editor of www.zhihu.com, a famous Chinese website. You can write latex formulas, can upload videos. And for Chinese editors, there’re often 2 spaces before every paragraph. But it would be recognized as codes.

How can we integrate another Markdown Editor for Discourse?

I know the markdown editor

There have been a good number of discussions here about the post editor.

Essentially, “Change is on the Way” and work has begun to make the move from Markdown to Commonmark possible.

Discourse Version 1.6

:white_check_mark: Convert all markdown stuff to ES6 (prep work for markdown engine move)

See this discussion:

Basically, once we’ve completed the change @Mittineague linked to above, we can resume the “alternative editors” conversation.
