Token Insertion

This plugin allows you to insert tokens into the CKEditor for replacement with data. For instance, it can be used for variables in mako or twig templates, or your own custom token replacement code.

The default token style is currently for mako template variables (e.g. - ${tokenName}), as that is what I initially developed this for, but it is configurable for any strings to start/end a token. You can also configure what tokens are available in the dropdown.

This plugin is largely based on the placeholder plugin made by the CKEditor folks. I haven't supplied all of the translations that they did in that plugin, but I will add in any contributed translations that folks would like if they supply them.

Please see the github page for more in-depth documentation.
