This is work in progress, please give me some thought.
Intriguing! Are you planning to eventually open source your work?
I would love to do so.
Awesome. Please update us here when you do. I’m very curious to find out what libraries you’re building this on top of. I always thought Prosemirror would be a good foundation for WYSIWYG in Discourse, since it is also using @vitaly’s excellent markdown-it library.
Also, are you doing this as a personal project (i.e. for the fun and challenge of it, and scratching an itch) or is this work being sponsored in some way? I ask because within the Meta community there’s huge interest in rich editing, so there are a couple different avenues we could explore to support this work.
This is kind of personal project, I am in the middle of converting my own forum into discourse, but Markdown would be big obstacle for my users, that’s why I have been doing this (on spare time).
This editor intents to be compatible with Discourse, I am challenging with quotes and Markdown, so far so good.
Hi folks, should we allow editing text inside quote? it is currently allowed to do so.
I do this regularly. Sometimes to fix a typo, sometimes to add emphasis. Sometimes to add ellipses when removing parts of the quote for brevity.
So, it’s nice to have. But I don’t think it’s must have if you’re looking for ways to cut scope and get an initial release out sooner.
Alright, have that done. I am making way to insert text before and after quote blocks.
If you want more feedback, we can set you up with a public demo instance on Digital Ocean. There’s going to be a whole bunch of people around here eager to try it out. You can send me a PM about it.
This is what would happen when quoting more while the cursor (of the editor) is inside another quote.
Things done recently:
- Copying / pasting rich text.
- Quote editing.
- Adding/Removing link.
- Rich text to markdown conversion to save to the database.
any updates to this?
