WYSIHTML5 – A better approach to rich text editing

wysihtml5 is an open source rich text editor based on HTML5 technology and the progressive-enhancement approach. It uses a sophisticated security concept and aims to generate fully valid HTML5 markup by preventing unmaintainable tag soups and inline styles.

Features

  • It’s fast and lightweight (smaller than TinyMCE, Aloha, …)
  • Auto-linking of urls as-you-type
  • Generates valid and semantic HTML5 markup (even when the content is pasted from MS Word)
  • Uses class names instead of inline styles
  • Unifies line break handling across browsers
  • Uses sandboxed iframes in order to prevent identity theft through XSS
  • Speech-input for Chrome
  • No jQuery required

Browser Support

  • Firefox 3.5+
  • Chrome
  • IE 8+
  • Safari 4+
  • Safari on iOS 5+
  • Opera 11+

Graceful degradation: Unsupported browsers will get a ~textarea~ tag

Requirements: No Requirements
Compatibility: All Modern Browsers
