Sorry, no I didn’t, because I’m not such a big fan of the HTML
WYSIWYG editors spit out (or whatever you want to call the junk it
spits out). Take out a few hours and experiment, it can’t be too hard.
I also hate WYSIWYG editors, but i open an exception to tinyMCE because
it makes stuff XHTML 1.1 compliant and doesn
t throws styles and spans for every goddamn change you make. Usually it writes down html exactly the way i would have. It also allows you to specificy a css source, so it loads and previews your styles in real time. Give it a try if you havent, i wasn`t disappointed with it!
I tried it not too long ago and still don’t like the way it works or some of the code it produces. But my gripes mostly have to do with the way tinymce was written and how bloated it is in a way. However, if I would have to choose between TinyMCE or FCKEditor, I would still prefer TinyMCE. However, I found out about CKEditor a couple of weeks ago (http://ckeditor.com/demo), which is a totally rewritten FCKEditor and seems to tackle all the problems I have with the previously mentioned libraries.
And there is a lot of tutorials on how to do file upload using tinyMCE
with PHP, which is probably why people were refering to it…
I am also trying to get file upload working and file browsing, and will
write some feedback when i get those working.
Converting PHP code to Ruby/Rails code shouldn’t be all too hard if the API is written in a consistent way and (that’s quite a while back though) TinyMCE was really flawed there when I tried to get it working properly. Good luck though, great to see people trying to get Rails and TinyMCE working together.
