This comparison list the Javascript libraries that help developpers to integrate an online rich text editor in their website.

Online rich text editors allow users to easily format text the way they want directly in a browser. Formatting is usually done in a very similar way as Word processors, using buttons or drop down menus to select the font style, sizes....

Features

WYSIWYG: These editors usually show directly the result while editing "what-you-see-is-what-you-get". MarkitUp is the exception here; this library helps to format HTML or other markup languages but do not show directly the result.

Integration mode:

  • iframe This technique use an iframe tag to integrate the content area. This allow to separate the content inside the editor from the rest of the page. This way the content styles can still match event if the edition page and target page is not the same.
  • in-place This technique allows to keep the overall layout.
  • textarea This technique use a textarea tag and result in raw text formatted as markup language (but not directly showing the result).
