TinyMCE vs. CKEditor

Post by Tata » Sun May 17, 2020 9:17 pm

What are to pros/cons of tinyMCE / CKEditor?
Could you please drop your opinions here?
I have tested both of them and have found thet the TinyMCE in some way seems to be more complex than the CMEditor.

It's no shame to ask for an answer if all efforts failed.
But it's awful to ask without any effort to find the answer yourself.

Probably, my experience with both editors is significantly less, and compared to the simple text field that I used to work with, as well as the editor "bueditor", "ckeditor" and "tinymce" seem to me to be the height of perfection. Ckeditor looks a little easier to use, but it also has disadvantages for me, probably related to not being able to configure it correctly. In any case, the topic is interesting, I want to listen to the opinion of experienced people.

* Tinymce 4.83 is not like the old versions - though up to 4.90 it has a moderate xss vulnerability. In many cases it is sufficient - You can get extra plugins from github and also extract some from wordpress-plugins -- The pro-version costs -- You can also take the many - but partially joomla-specific plugins from Joomla-JCE-pro, if You buy it. The jce-standard version has less plugins https://github.com/widgetfactory/jce/tr ... ce/plugins).
* Ckeditor has a session token since 4.53 ! Ckeditor 4.62 is not ckeditor 4.14, which You can extract out of my clean version(github.com/g7sim) or direct from the link in line 19 ( https://ckeditor.com/cke4/builder/downl ... 2a8e9327de ) of the build-config.js. The XH-version needs no entries into configuration-files. Just copy the plugin(and dependencies) into the plugins_external directory - and that was it (.... if they are compatible with the ckeditor-version and with other javascripts....).Ckeditor has also many extensions at github.

P.s. Meine cleane Version (https://github.com/g7sim/cmsimple-XH-CL) hat jetzt u.a. einen integrierten lokalen Tinymce 5.31 mit FA5.13 und Bootstrap-grid - auch zum Extrahieren und anderweitig benutzen
