What's the latest on WYSIWYG editor integration with Rails?

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.



This one definetly worth a look

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!
