Hi all -

For awhile now I've been using Fckeditor (and it's rails plugin) but
was wondering if there might be something new to take a look at.
Mostly just curious.  Ease of use and asset/integration are the most
important issues.

Thanks all!

Everyone I know is still using fckeditor modded to do file uploading
and stuff. I personally haven't found anything better but I'd love to
know if there is.

Hello Phillip,

I maintain a plugin for TinyMCE in Rails. You can find it at:

It's pretty easy to install and setup.

I have just noticed the new TinyMCE 3.2.2 has been released though, so
will be updating that sometime within the next 24 hours.

Livepipe has a textarea control built on top of prototype...looks very
configurable and easy on the eyes.

That's for markdown, not HTML, and it's not "what you see is what you
get". It's just a nice toolbar. neat though. I may use this on
something else. Thanks for sharing!
