    Here is a jQuery powered WYSIWYG editor that works with all modern browsers, works with iPad and other tablets, can handle multiple instances, can handle keyboard shortcuts, supports autosave, and is 5x faster than TinyMCE.

    Try it out: http://redactorjs.com/

    Can someone please turn this into an add-on?

    I'm going to have a play with this - I'm going to install it on my test board as a replacement for the plain text area.

    I thought that meant that it can't be sold, in other words it can come installed with software that is for sell, but can come with software that is free, or created as a add-on/plugin/modification for free? I really don't think it has anything t do with ad's....

    Take a moment to read the license...

    Take a moment to read their product page:

    A commercial domain would be any domain that generates a revenue for the purposes of generating a profit.

    BTW - I have run out of time to test this - someone else should implement it :D

    Ok, I guess that's a deal breaker then...

    It could still be an add-on. But for it to fully adhere to the license agreement it'd need to be available for free via the Resource Manager under the same terms. The license agreement does allow "to Remix — to adapt the work" which is what a XenForo add-on would be, but to legally use the add-on on a commercial site they would have to buy the license from the Redactor website.

    I have contacted the creator and asked for them to make it into an add-on for xenforo. On their roadmap they state they intend to make a module for drupal and modx. I asked they make one for xF, as it has a resource manager.

    I like this one, for me its a real contender to TinyMCE.

    BTW, a multi domain license costs $89, as well as the mini faq say this:

    It is kinda vague, but I read it as there is a redistribution license available.

    I have already requested information about this. I will post the information here as soon as I get it.

    Although it's nice for new projects (minus the licensing), I don't see why any existing project should want to switch to this over TinyMCE, which works perfectly well. Any speed improvements you may have are negligible because they are hardly humanly noticeable, granted I haven't written up any huge posts in TinyMCE, but from my experience it works smooth as can be.

    For the mentioned features, TinyMCE has an equivalent feature for each of those.

    I'm by no means against this new editor, it looks slick! But from a developers perspective I'd be against spending much time implementing something that doesn't add any actual value over the existing implementation, when that time could be spend in so much more useful ways.

    I write articles, and TinyMCE is a ***** to work with. I'd rather use straight HTML or maybe BBC. The way TinyMCE is intergraded into xF, it's a pain to try and add BBC buttons, and have existing added BBC to actually show without posting. If you are just posting comments TinyMCE is fine, if you want to write rich articles, TinyMCE is more trouble than what it's worth.

    Right now my user's only complain about the editor/TinyMCE. So I installed minorin and added a few buttons. That seems to make them happy for now, but it could be so much better.

    Interesting, may I ask what annoys you so much about TinyMCE?

    Any willing to make this a free add-on?
