CKEditor Weekly for August 26, 2013

Welcome to CKEditor Weekly, a summary of all the interesting happenings in and around the CKEditor community. It was a hectic week with most activity being delegated to closing various tickets. Read on to see what's new... 

CKEditor in review

  • We're currently working on a CKEditor skin creation guide. We're also updating our Skin Tuner application which lets you conveniently see every element of your custom skin on a single page. Both should simplify the skin customization process. 
  • Fixed a WebSpellChecker bug where it would break the cloning of editor config.
  • Reviewing a fix for lists from Word not pasting properly. Also reviewing a fix for anchors getting stripped when pasting from Word. 
  • Reviewing a patch for IE and Opera removing empty lines in lists on copy/paste.
  • Tweaking ACF rule application inconsistencies between inline editor and standard editor.
  • Reviewing a patch that fixes an issue where the Save toolbar button only saves the first CKEditor instance. 
  • Reviewing a patch that fixes an issue where the merging of cells does not work in inline mode.

Around the Net

  • Node.js, a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime designed for the creation of scalable network applications, has released version 4.2.559 of its npm module, which loads the "statics" of CKEditor.
  • Les Tilleuls has released a bundle that provides SonataMediaBundle integration into CKEditor for Symfony 2 projects. With it you can browse and upload files through SonataMediaBundle directly from the CKEditor UI. Symfony is a PHP framework for web projects.
  • One of our community members, Chimit, posted a cool bit of code on our forum that lets you automatically upload files from other sites to your server. The code hasn't been tested, but it might serve as a good reference point for anyone interested in such a feature.

That's it for this week. If you would like to be featured in one of our CKEditor Weeklies, or have an interesting tidbit that relates to CKEditor, leave a comment below or contact us!
