Does anybody have simple example of Tiny_MCE working?


#1

I’ve gotten my hopes up a few times and have gone through the many
Rails Tiny_MCE tutorials only to bomb out.
All of these tutorials are significantly different which leads me to
ask if anyone has a very simple Rails app they might share that
demonstrates this feature.

Some frustrations I’ve found are;

  1. They suggest loading many lines of javascript tags and yields in
    the application.html.erb …what about the current :yield?
  2. The instructions for the rake plugin don’t seem to work the same
    anymore
  3. There’s no examples of using the form_for approach with
    form.text_area etc.

I am grateful for any help in this endeavor and happy to share my
results.

I’ve used the tinymce rails plugin. You just drop it in to your app, and
it works like a charm. Unfortunately, I don’t have any code I can post,
though.

Hey David,

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

http://github.com/kete/tiny_mce

It’s pretty easy to install and setup. See the README on the link
above.

Should only take 2-3 minutes to install, and doesn’t need any complex
yields or special form methods.
