  • quill

    Quill is a modern WYSIWYG editor built for compatibility and extensibility.

    I started with Quill... wound up hitting lots of challenges. There are bugs/issues like, "don't add extra margin or it will be converted to extra spaces." I also struggled to embed Quill into an HTML form element, which I though would be easy.

  • medium-editor

    Medium.com WYSIWYG editor clone. Uses contenteditable API to implement a rich text solution.

    The MediumEditor clone looks great, but I wanted a traditional toolbar and the last commit it seems was 3+ years ago.

  • trix

    A rich text editor for everyday writing

    Trix was the winner. It was easy to style, is well maintained, has documentation for embedding it into a form, is easy to create custom keyboard shortcuts for, has great examples on how to save/load content or modify it with javascript.

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
