This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/ExperiencedDevs

  • SurveyJS - Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • github-writer

    GitHub Writer - WYSIWYG Rich-Text Editor for GitHub, powered by CKEditor.

    Every place where the mismanager wanted a rich text editor ended up skinning/modding what is now called CKEditor . It used to be called "FCKEditor" because of the initials of the guy who wrote it, but almost everyone reading it put the letter U in where it didn't belong. Sorry Frederico Caldeira Knabben.

  • trix

    A rich text editor for everyday writing

    I'm sure something like Trix (used in Ruby on Rails) would probably do the job - https://trix-editor.org/

  • SurveyJS

    Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App. With SurveyJS form UI libraries, you can build and style forms in a fully-integrated drag & drop form builder, render them in your JS app, and store form submission data in any backend, inc.
