Tiny MCE Editor For Symfony Framework

TinyMCE is a powerful WYSIWYG editor control for web browsers such as MSIE or Mozilla that enables the user to edit HTML contents in a more user friendly way. The editor control is very flexible and it’s built for integration purposes (usage within systems like Intranets, CMS, and LMS, for example).

TinyMCE is developed by Moxiecode Systems AB and is currently released under the “LGPL” license.

TinyMCE has no direct requirements except for browser compatibility and, of course, JavaScript needs to be turned on.

There is NO back-end code distributed with TinyMCE.

  2. There is a much easier way to implement tinymce into symfony, in fact it comes built into symfony by default using sfRichTextEditor

    You can also use sfFormExtraPlugin or other plugins to install it. You never have to put javascript in the view…. configuration is set in app.yml

  3. whoa! thanks for the info!

  4. Пора переименовать блог, присвоив название связанное с доменами 🙂 может хватит про них?
