If your web project has input fields, integrating a WYSIWYG HTML editor is a great idea. The problem is deciding which editor is best for you. Sometimes it is hard to sift through all of the options and decide which suits you best. Moreover, once you do finally choose an editor it can be difficult to get the most out of it. If you have encountered these issues and still haven’t come up with a solution that works for you, that’s where Froala comes into it. We have built what we believe is the best WYSIWYG HTML editor. More importantly, our customers seem to agree.
In this blog post, we will help you get the most out of your Froala Editor integration.
One of the main reasons to integrate an HTML editor in place of your input fields is so your users can add rich HTML to the content they are submitting. In addition to improving their experience, you also gain. Including images and text formatting boosts the quality of the content your users submit. Whether your site is for business, learning, or personal use, your content will look much better formatted correctly as HTML than it will in bland plain text. Sure, you could add a third-party component that might do the same thing to your project, but third-party components are hit and miss and might not offer the quality that your users demand. That is why at Froala we value a high-performance and simple design that makes our JS text editor robust, easy for developers to use, and loved by users.
How can I get the most out of an HTML Editor integration?
To get the most out of your HTML editor integration you need a powerful API that supports your client and server-side frameworks and a versatile image manager. Let’s dig deeper to see how Froala more than meets those needs.
When it comes to a powerful API, the Froala editor delivers. We designed and meticulously documented it so the rich text editor is both easy to customize and interact with. For example, here are the events, methods, and options Froala’s powerful editor gives you to work with.
You can’t have a front end without a back end. Just like your front end, your HTML editor integration needs backend server integrations that work with whatever platform you choose to use. Because of this, our rich text editor also supports multiple backend technologies to make developer’s life even easier. Here are some of the server-side frameworks Froala plays nicely with:
Finally, with your front and back end sorted, your HTML editor integration needs a rich image management interface. By default, the Froala Rich Text Editor’s image manager displays images stored on our servers and it just simulates the delete behavior. In order to display images from your own server, you have to use a server-side language. The image manager is a plugin for the WYSIWYG HTML editor.
