    I agree. Yes, you can. Quill is the example here.

    Actually, back in 2015 when we started prototyping CKEditor 5, we started with this approach as well. Our goal from the beginning was to combine real-time editing capabilities with an engine capable of storing and rendering complex rich-text structures (nested tables, complex nested lists, other rich widgets, etc.). We quickly realized that a linear structure is going to be a huge bottleneck. In the end, if you want to represent trees, storing them as a linear structure is counterproductive.

    So, we went for a tree model. That got many things in the engine an order of magnitude harder (OT being one). But I choose to encapsulate this complexity in the model rather than make it leak to particular plugins.

    In fact, from what I remember, https://github.com/quilljs/quill/issues/117 (e.g. https://github.com/quilljs/quill/issues/117#issuecomment-644...) is a good example of issues that we avoided.

    I also talked to companies that built their platforms on top of Quill. One of them ended up gluing together countless Quill instances to power their editor and overcome the limitations of the linear data model but is now looking for a way to rebuild their editor from scratch due to the issues (performance, complexity, stability).

    So, yes. You can implement a rich-text editor based on a linear model. But it has its immediate limitations that you need to take into consideration.

    Project mention: Show HN: An open source visual editor for React | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-05

    This is really slick! A really fluid and intuitive interface.

    We use https://react-page.github.io/ (also MIT licensed) extensively at my startup; it attacks the same problem, and it's been incredibly effective (and hackable!).

    Generally speaking, owning your own CMS data, in your own database, with a well-documented JSON data format, and adding the ability to take any React component you've written (that itself may interact with your own data) and make it not only reusable as part of a content editing system but also WYSIWIG, opens up a huge number of opportunities - including adding your own logic to transform content before display.

    https://builder.io is another alternative that's very effective at the adapting-custom-components-to-WYSIWIG side of things, but does keep the data in its own cloud storage.

    I'm really excited to see innovation in this space, and I'll be following Puck closely!

    We think the headless approach is a big factor in why Tiptap has become so popular, but you are right! You can't just add Tiptap to your project without styling. That's why we're always asked about a drop-in Notion-like styling. We don't offer this, but our community has built something that might help you: https://github.com/TypeCellOS/BlockNote

  • react-monaco-editor

    Monaco Editor for React.

    Project mention: Build a web editor with react-monaco-editor | dev.to | 2023-05-04

    The react-monaco-editor package was the first package available for embedding with React and is still actively maintained. However, it requires you to make various webpack changes which are very inconvenient, especially when working with React. This has made the package decline in popularity, as shown by the number of weekly downloads compared to the @monaco-editor/react package.

  • remirror

    ProseMirror toolkit for React 🎉

    Project mention: Launch HN: Tiptap (YC S23) – Toolkit for developing collaborative editors | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-08-01

    We have been using Tiptap in production for more than a year in Notesnook[0]. Glad to see it finally launching here on HN!

    We have had quite a long and rough ride in search of a stable rich text editor. We began with Quill.js then migrated to TinyMCE and then finally settled on Prosemirror. Unfortunately, contenteditable is still absolutely horrible on web browsers, especially mobile ones.

    Tiptap is a good choice if you are looking for a framework agnostic and thin abstraction over Prosemirror. However, if you are primarily working with React you should go with Remirror[1]. Tiptap's APIs are heavily inspired by Remirror (almost a duplicate in some places). Remirror takes the edge on the maturity and stability of the API and extensions. The sheer number of utilities offered by them to simplify Prosemirror's APIs is astounding.

    In the end, though, its Prosemirror that's doing all the heavy lifting. And no matter how many abstractions you put on it, you will have to get really, really close in with Prosemirror's internals. Tiptap or Remirror do not make that any easier or harder aside from the initial bootstrapping.
