SPAW – GPL Web Based WYSIWYG Editor Control

Posted · Category: Forms, GPL License

Web Based WYSIWYG Editor Control

SPAW Editor is a web based in-browser WYSIWYG HTML editor control. It is a replacement for standard HTML textarea fields for rich text content editing. It includes lots of exciting features. The followings are the 2 major and interesting features SPAW Editor provides.

Tabbed Multi-document Interface
New industry unique tabbed multi-document interface feature. Now you can edit virtually unlimited number of HTML snippets in a single WYSIWYG instance. This can save a lot of screen space, unnecessary scrolling and loading time compared to other solutions where you have to load as many WYSIWYG instances as HTML snippets you want to edit.

Floating/Shared Toolbars
Multiple instances of SPAW Editor can be controlled by a single toolbar. This toolbar can either be attached to one of the instances or float around the screen. This way you can save loading time and achieve a better level of integration of the editing area into complex designs (no toolbar overhead).

  • This is realy good WYSIWYG

  • Every time I try out such a WYSIWYG editor, I end up finding bugs when doing do/undo tests. With this one, Making a paragraph into a title means you can’t change it back to a paragraph. You can change it to a different title (level 1 to 6), but not to a paragraph.

    This is the pitfall of every single JavaScript WYSIWYG editor I’ve tested so far. Unless you’re very careful, you end up doing things you won’t be able to undo.

    This is why I prefer text-based syntaxes such as Markdown (and HTML, obviously).

  • This crashed firefox for me :/
    (Firebug is disabled)

  • I tend to use FCKEditor for complex needs and TinyMCE for simple ones. But I’ll give SPAW a try.

    But I do wish they used BSD(or even LGPL) license instead of GPL.

  • One more WYSIWYG to my list :) Definitely I will consider this in my next web application.

  • I closed it after the first popup window opened when I clicked on one of the toolbar icons.
