bootstrap-wysiwyg

Tiny bootstrap-compatible WISWYG rich text editor, based on browser execCommand, built originally for MindMup. Here are the key features:

  • Automatically binds standard hotkeys for common operations on Mac and Windows
  • Drag and drop files to insert images, support image upload (also taking photos on mobile devices)
  • Allows a custom built toolbar, no magic markup generators, enabling the web site to use all the goodness of Bootstrap, FortAwesome and so on...
  • Does not force any styling - it's all up to you
  • Uses standard browser features, no magic non-standard code, toolbar and keyboard configurable to execute any supported browser command
  • Does not create a separate frame, backup text areas etc - instead keeps it simple and runs everything inline in a DIV
  • (Optionally) cleans up trailing whitespace and empty divs and spans
  • Requires a modern browser (tested in Chrome 26, Firefox 19, Safari 6)
  • Supports mobile devices (tested on IOS 6 Ipad/Iphone and Android 4.1.1 Chrome)

Basic Usage

See http://mindmup.github.com/bootstrap-wysiwyg/

Customising

You can assign commands to hotkeys and toolbar links. For a toolbar link, just put the execCommand command name into a data-edit attribute. For more info on execCommand, see http://www.quirksmode.org/dom/execCommand.html and https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Rich-Text_Editing_in_Mozilla

<div class="btn-toolbar" data-role="editor-toolbar" data-target="#editor">
    <a class="btn btn-large" data-edit="bold"><i class="icon-bold"></i></a>
</div>

To pass arguments to a command, separate a command with a space.

<a data-edit="fontName Arial">...</a>

You can also use input type='text' with a data-edit attribute. When the value is changed, the command from the data-edit attribute will be applied using the input value as the command argument

<input type="text" data-edit="createLink">

If the input type is file, when a file is selected the contents will be read in using the FileReader API and the data URL will be used as the argument

<input type="file" data-edit="insertImage">

To change hotkeys, specify the map of hotkeys to commands in the hotKeys option. For example:

$('#editor').wysiwyg({
		hotKeys: {
				'ctrl+b meta+b': 'bold',
				'ctrl+i meta+i': 'italic',
				'ctrl+u meta+u': 'underline',
				'ctrl+z meta+z': 'undo',
				'ctrl+y meta+y meta+shift+z': 'redo'
        }
});
