Real-time collaboration features include three separate plugins that can be customized and used independently of one another with any CKEditor 5 build.
- Real-time collaborative editing – Allows for editing the same document by multiple users simultaneously. It also automatically solves all conflicts if users do changes at the same time.
- Real-time collaborative comments – Makes it possible to add comments to any part of content in the editor.
- Users selection and presence list – Shows the selection of other users and lets you view the list of users currently editing the content in the editor.
All of the above features are fully adjustable. This makes implementing real-time collaborative editing within your application a highly customizable out-of-the-box experience.
The real-time collaboration feature needs a cloud service to synchronize content between the clients. To use it you need to sign up to the Collaboration service powered by CKEditor Cloud Services. Refer to Collaboration - Quick Start for more details.
