Real-time collaboration - How we approached collaborative editing

Lessons learned from creating a rich-text editor with real-time collaboration

Real-time collaboration is a feature we wanted to introduce since the inception of CKEditor 5. The research that we made back in 2012 and some failed attempts that we observed all around showed us that full support for collaborative editing for rich-text data cannot be added on top of existing projects. A proper architecture has to be designed and implemented from scratch, with real-time collaboration treated as a first-class citizen in the entire project.

CKEditor 5 - A new era for rich text editing

CKEditor 5: A new era for rich text editing

The heart of the new CKEditor Ecosystem is undoubtedly our brand new editor, CKEditor 5. It’s not simply the next major version of one the most popular rich text editors out there. It’s the next chapter on what web text editors are, how they should be used and what possibilities they bring.

Why We Chose a Multirepo Architecture for CKEditor 5

Editor Recommendations Project

'What features should a rich text editor have? Should bold produce the ‘strong’ or the ‘b’ HTML tag? Should underline be included? What about formatting features like font size or color?

Designing Software in the Open

‘Last year I’ve introduced some details about CKEditor 5, our new content editing platform, which will reach the market in 2016. Since then, we’ve made very good progress with its development. We’re almost finalizing the code for the basic infrastructure that will support the editor’s core.
There is one aspect though that has not been emphasized enough so far  -  the fact that (since the very beginning) we have been designing CKEditor 5 in the open, so anyone can jump in to help us or to simply share their opinion.’

Build a WYSIWYG editor in-house or use an off-the-shelf solution?

You often consider writing a new piece of software when the products already available on the market seem insufficient in terms of their functionalities, or simply do not fit the goals of your company. It’s obvious that you wouldn’t want to use a random out-of-the-box solution that doesn’t exactly do what you intended it to do. However, when you consider these few points before you decide to create a completely new content editing solution, it becomes clear that reinventing the wheel is the last thing in which your company should be involved.

Top myths about using the WYSIWYG editor
