First Developer Preview of CKEditor 5 Available

We would like to let you know that the first developer preview of CKEditor 5 has recently been tagged as version v0.1.0 and is available for everyone to see! We have been working on this project for the past 2 years, building the next generation editor from scratch, closing over 400 tickets – and now we want to share the first tangible milestone with the great community that has supported us throughout this entire time.

Why We Chose a Multirepo Architecture for CKEditor 5

To answer why we’ve made a choice to keep CKEditor 5 code in multiple repositories I should perhaps first explain what problems that brings. Or rather — what are the advantages of keeping things in a single repository.

CKSource  - Open (Source) for 10 Years!

‘It all started in 2003. The decision of bringing my pet project into the open — to an environment I was still unfamiliar with. In a period when Open Source Software wasn’t yet a fashionable thing to do in order to show that you’re cool.’

Accessibility Checker Goes Open Source

It’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day today! To celebrate it in a big way, we would like to announce that as of today, Accessibility Checker for CKEditor will be available for everyone for free, licensed under an Open Source GPL license. If you care about accessibility, want to learn more about how important it is, and get to know our new product, read on!

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.

CKEditor 5 - The Future of Rich Text Editing

CKEditor has made a long way in more than 12 years of its existence. During this time, it has been greatly improved in many aspects, becoming a rock-solid solution for web applications, reaching 15 million downloads recently.
The Web itself changed during these years. New standards emerged together with new ways of consuming and sharing information. A much stronger understanding about the value of web content has developed, for the benefit of the present and the future of the world. JavaScript finally showed its power in the everyday life of people and the web technology evolved to become the mandatory option for modern software.

5 Reasons Why Open Source Software Is Perfect For Enterprise Solutions

Open Source Software came a long way from being created and maintained by passionate developers looking for game-changing solutions, to becoming the backbone of the tech industry. Past few years saw the rise of investment in open source solutions by such tech moguls as IBM, Intel, Facebook, and Google - to name just a few.
