TinyMCE is an online rich-text editor released as open-source software under the LGPL. It has the ability to convert HTML textarea fields or other HTML elements to editor instances. TinyMCE is designed to easily integrate with JavaScript libraries such as React (JavaScript library), Vue.js, and AngularJS as well as content management systems such as Joomla!, and WordPress.

Browser compatibility[edit]

TinyMCE is compatible with most browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, and Opera, across multiple operating systems.[1]

API[edit]

TinyMCE includes an extensive API for custom integration.[2]

Plugins[edit]

TinyMCE ships with an assortment of plugins.[3] Because TinyMCE is meant to be a client-side application, it does not include native file managers for various server technologies. Several file manager solutions exist, including several proprietary projects developed by Ephox, as well as a handful of open source file manager solutions.

Proprietary[edit]

Free and Open source[edit]

  • Open Manager—An Ajax File Uploader & Image Gallery Plugin written in 2013 compatible with TinyMCE 3.x.
  • After the Deadline—A spelling, style, and grammar checking software service with a TinyMCE plugin.
  • TinyBrowser—File manager featuring simple multiple file upload support (uploader is Adobe Flash based).
  • TinyCIMM—TinyMCE CodeIgniter Media Manager.
  • IMCE—Image/file uploader and browser.
  • PDW Media Browser—Windows-7-type media browser.
  • PDW Toggle Toolbars—Show and hide toolbars with a click on a button.

Language support[edit]

  • 42 different translations are available for TinyMCE 4.x.x.[4]
  • 46 different translations are available for TinyMCE 3.x.x.[5]

Product support[edit]

Community peer-to-peer support for TinyMCE can be found on the forums at [1]. Premium product support requires purchasing a support subscription with TinyMCE Enterprise.

Themes and skins[edit]

The current version (4) of TinyMCE has its own custom skin editor accessible at skin.tinymce.com and you can find more skins in the skin/plugin repository on the tinymce.com website.

TinyMCE 2.x->3.x used to offer various ways to customize the look and feel of the editor. Version 3 of TinyMCE came packaged with two themes, simple and advanced, as well as 2 skins for each theme, default and o2k7.

Compressor[edit]

TinyMCE also has an optional compressor pack to reduce the overall script download footprint, in the time it takes the script to initialize. The compressor pack is available for PHP, ASPX, JSP, and CFM. A third-party Ruby on Rails compressor pack is also available.[6]

History[edit]

TinyMCE was spun out of a content management system developed by Johan "Spocke" Sorlin and Joakim Lindkvist from their original content management system known as "Moxiecode Content Editor" [7] in 2004.
