Replace TinyMCE by CKEditor (#189).

CKEditor basically works.

To do:

  • reduce footprint by dropping plugins, languages, and skins.
  • customize toolbar and other minor things.
  • fix a bug where editor instances are not disposed.

See ticket 189.

Webclient: customize CKEditor (#189).

  • Simplify toolbar (rarely used commands are dropped)
  • Content area CSS (editor style is the same as page)
  • Content area grows automatically (no vertical scrollbar appear)
  • Hide bottom bar (no elements path, no resize handle)

See ticket 189.

Webclient: reduce CKEditor footprint (#189).

Drop unused plugins, languages, and skins.
Further reductin would be possible by repackaging the JS code (not tracked for the moment).

See ticket 189.

Webclient: fix CKEditor instance disposal (#189).

Changes in Webclient plugin framework:

1) Replace "post_submit_form" hook by "post_destroy_form" hook with slightly changed semantic.

This hook is triggered each time a form is destroyed, regardless weather by

  • submit the form (through pressing "Save")
  • cancel the form (through pressing "Cancel")
  • overwrite the form by clicking another topic (without pressing "Save" or "Cancel" before)

2) The plugin developer who provides a custom page renderer must no longer care about triggering the "post_submit_form". This is done by the Webclient framework.

See ticket 189.
