Is there a working HTML5 WYSIWYG Editor for ZURB Foundation 5?

I am looking for this as well, however I have been using the tinyMCE editor and attaching it to specific text areas via css selectors in the tinyMCE code block.

I know about tinyMCE and also CKEditor, but both dont fit in design wise, and also they have some quirks which I do not like (like inserting links thru a pop window, etc.)

Is there no other option?

I doubt you will find a dedicated html editor for Foundation, as I don't see why anyone would go through the trouble to limit an editor like that. You might find some new light editors with less styling that easier integrate with the default Foundation styles.

Well it does not have to be dedicated to foundation, but at least it should be lightweight and if possible themable. There are a number of them for twitter bootstrap, which I was thinking about using or adapting.

Has anyone ever used any of the lightweight html editors with zurb foundation?

Just found this Editor:

Seems to be styled pretty easily and only requirement is jquery. I guess I will try this out. I will post my findings when I get done :)

ckeditor is infact a great Rich Text Editor for Foundation and if you don't believe me, take a look at it in action here:

That is a Foundation template that uses ckeditor. Will you have to do some tweaking YES, but you are not going to find an implementation of a Rich Text Editor that you will not have to tweak to fit your needs.

I have not used this next one, but is supposed to be great, but none of these are made for use with foundation. They are made for use with web apps, oh wait if you're using Foundation, you are probably building a web app.

A question like this is more suited for a Bootstrap forum. Foundation is not your all inclusive framework and there is no reason they would build a Foundation Rich Text Editor, it's too specific.

just curious as to why you wouldn't use Sublime Text 3 with Foundation snippits and Emmet? I don't mean to sound harsh, I am just trying to give you alternate options. I realize that ST3 isnt a WYSIWYG editor but with those 2 addons, building websites with Foundation 4 or 5 is quick and easy. If you haven't used them, let me know and I can help you out.

Here is one example of a foundation website that uses a html editor.

Here is the download link for the editor

Jordan Vrtanoski & Jacob Brooks, the OP asks about Rich Text Editors that let you use more options for a textarea element. As much as I like Sublime Text and as much as Pinegrow looks nifty, they won't do the trick. ;-)

Personally I use CKEditor with CSS tweaked to fit my designs. It also works fine with Angular so it's good for Foundation for Apps.

The best thing about CKEditor is that its inline mode is so amazing - it lets you to use Single Page Apps frameworks power to the fullest. And using it, you don't have to care about your design at all, as it just perfectly blends into your website.

There is a great one built by Joe Workman that is based on Rapidweaver:

Has anyone found one that will work with Foundation 6 on the server - something like a WYSIWYG editor, but one that will be compatible with text areas that have foundation components in them?


Here is an example file that I want it to work with:

I believe what you are looking for is Bootstrap/Foundation Editor plugin for TinyMCE/CKeditor.
