Lexical – a web text editor framework that powers Facebook
8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 20 Jun 2022
We're trying to choose between Lexical and Slate at work. Do you have any examples that would be similar to this? https://github.com/ianstormtaylor/slate/blob/main/site/examp...
A good rich text editor for reactjs?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/reactjs | 23 May 2022
If you are going to customise a ton of functionalities and/or implement new functionality I suggest using SlateJS. If not, have a look at Sun editor.

You definitely need to give Slate (https://github.com/ianstormtaylor/slate) a try - the best editor framework I've used.
Best WYSIWYG editor for Vue that supports structured content?
7 projects | reddit.com/r/vuejs | 7 Mar 2022
Slate: Looks very promising, but it's for React. (Someone has floated the idea of making it framework-agnostic, but the maintainers haven't committed to that goal yet.)
Switching Rich Text Editors, Part 1: Picking Tiptap
13 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Feb 2022
Thanks for submission! Very timely. Been searching for a stable and flexible editor (or rather a tool to build such an editor) and Tiptap looks like a good candidate.
I was also considering Slate, but have found this rather annoying bug https://github.com/ianstormtaylor/slate/issues/4833, which is surprising as it doesn't look like some rare edge case, and breaks something that seems to be like basic functionality for an editor. Had to re-consider.

Slate - A completely customizable framework for building rich text editors.
What is Slate.js, and will it replace Quill and Draft.js?
2 projects | dev.to | 23 Nov 2021
Slate.js is a highly customizable platform for creating rich-text editors, also known as WYSIWYG editors. It enables you to create powerful, intuitive editors similar to those you’ve probably used in Medium, Dropbox Paper, or Google Docs. These are quickly becoming standard features for many web apps, and tools like Slate make them easier to implement, ensuring your program won’t get bogged down in complexity.
10+ React Rich Text Editors

Building complex, nested documents was impossible. Many editors were designed around simplistic "flat" documents, making things like tables, embeds and captions difficult to reason about and sometimes impossible. Demo GitHub
Anyone ever tried creating a text input similar to discord's in react?

Ok good to know. Although, the Mention Example seem pretty complicated for what feels like such a simple task but still good to know about this in case I ever need it in the future
Slate – A completely customizable framework for building rich text editors
11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 29 Jul 2021
I've been using Slate heavily this year. I'm not a Slate developer, but I've read a lot of the source code, follow all the Github issues, etc., and I'm "owning an aging fork". As far as I can tell, the API instability mentioned elsehwere in this thread resulted from a nearly complete rewrite (inspired by immerjs) that launched in May 2020; for over a year since then, the API has been very stable, mainly because Ian Taylor, who wrote most of Slate, seems to have moved on to other projects (see https://github.com/ianstormtaylor/slate/graphs/contributors)... there's still a lot of work on Slate, but it's mainly by other people who are trying to preserve the vision that Ian laid out. I ended up forking only the React part of Slate, which is officially a plugin, and massively rewriting it to support virtualized windowing, so we can work with very large possibly complicated to render documents. I also added fairly generic realtime collaboration support. This is currently used in https://cocalc.com for WYSIWYG editing of Markdown documents. I also have plans to extend my use of Slate with windowing to Jupyter notebooks and other document types.
I chose Slate over Prosemirror because the source code of Slate is Typescript written in a clear modern style, and I was able to start reading any part of it and understand it easily, whereas I find Prosemirror's core source code more difficult (this may just be a reflection of my shortcomings). I spent a lot of time initially just reading Slate PR's claiming to fix bugs, then integrating the PR's into my fork, often in a way that makes sense for my project, but likely wouldn't in general (I left helpful remarks on Github).
Slate is an interesting project, and it is comparable to Prosemirror. However, development is structured very differently at present, and I think there's little funding behind Slate, whereas the author of Prosemirror seems to have done a good job encouraging sustainable donations. I think Ian Taylor, who mainly wrote Slate, also cofounded a company called Segment.io, which is a serious startup that was recently sold to Twilio, so I don't know what his motivations are...
