"Rich textbox" for flask

"Rich textbox" for flask

First of all:

Hello World :)
That's my first post on this mailing list.


I come here to look for advice.

I'm looking for some nice graphical <INPUT BOX> for my website.
The idea is that users could create post in the easy way (sth like phpbb
forum).
They should be able to  write and edit text in graphical mode: justify,
change color, align to center, make bullet/enumerated list (ul li)
The ideal would be module to insert photos (upload photo, generate link)
into post.
On submit, I would like to store text (with tags) in database (sql alchemy
driver), and photos in "static" folder

The question is - do you have advice what should I look for. Is there any
out-of-the-box solution? I'm a bit new in web-solution so I'm a bit lost
what's current best-practice solution.

Thank you for suggestions

Use TinyMCE <http://www.tinymce.com/>. What you're looking for is a WYSIWYG
Editor. Search for other such editors online. They are javascript based
editors and dock in the TextBox that you generate on your page. This isn't
dependent on Flask really.

All the best.

but some time back I decided I liked CKEditor better.

I've recently become partial to wysihtml5, and more specifically
bootstrap-wysihtml5.  Both are licensed under MIT.

I used CKEditor for a while, but after saw bootstrap-wysihtml5 couple
minutes ago surely will switch to it, especially in Flask-Admin!

Thanks Sean for this beaty!

Hello,

Nice suggestions :)
I find CKEditor more complex and better described, but  bootstrap-wysihtml5
looks nice and clean too (i know you can customize ckeditor).

The thing I don't know how to manage at the moment is: howto manage image
upload to the server.
In CKEditor you configure upload link, that return link on submit.
Any suggestions for bootstrap-wysihtml5?

greetings

@Igor - I use it with Flask-Admin as well.  Here's a gist with a WTForms
field/widget and form_override example:

UI stuff (such as form restyles) run on the client and are completely
unrelated to the server-side framework (such as Flask), so what you're
looking for would probably rather be a "rich textbox/WYSIWYG editor for
websites". What you'd do is create a regular form (using something like
WTForms/Flask-WTF) and then add a client-sided WYSIWYG editor on the client
side (such as CKEditor) through JavaScript (while it's hopefully still
somewhat usable with JS disabled). Attachments would get a bit more
complicated (and DYI), although something like Flask-Uploads should be able
to handle the basics.
