CKEditor 5 - The Future of Rich Text Editing

Different implementations of CKEditor 5 scheme

CKEditor has made a long way in more than 12 years of its existence. During this time, it has been greatly improved in many aspects, becoming a rock-solid solution for web applications, reaching 15 million downloads recently.

The Web itself changed during these years. New standards emerged together with new ways of consuming and sharing information. A much stronger understanding about the value of web content has developed, for the benefit of the present and the future of the world. JavaScript finally showed its power in the everyday life of people and the web technology evolved to become the mandatory option for modern software.

All of the above fostered the creation of our current solution, CKEditor 4. It’s a modern and powerful application, a clear innovation leader in the web editing environment. Still, we think that a drastic move is necessary, to fully meet the expectations that the world will put in front of us today and in the future. In fact, that’s what CKEditor 5 is all about.

  1. Hello CK

    running a small community website  Joomla base.

    Using MyJspace for users to submit article. But still they find the editor difficult to use

    One common issue is to simply put text next to an image. Rather than below. Using tables layout seems too much for them and anyway seems to get stripped by mobile devices.

    So Hello CK editor Can I deply this on my Jooimla website and can an ordinary user simply put text next to an image without using tables ?

    I am not an experienced coder

    kind regards Phil


  2. Hi Phil,

    Check out the CKEditor demo site. You will see that images are placed alongside text and aligned without the use of tables.

    Please note that CKEditor does not include a file browser - you will need to install an additional component for this functionality like CKFinder or perhaps another solution dedicated to Joomla.
