Supporting editor API #2391

In the WordPress version 4.8, the new editor API was introduced to help developers to create editors from JavaScript. Previously, this can be done only by calling wp_editor() function in PHP.

This helps a lot in working with the editor from JavaScript. We can transform a textarea into an editor, add buttons or remove them. Of course it supports only TinyMCE.

As the API was just added in version 4.8, I hope this API is considered in Gutenberg. Our team has worked on the new API and it turned out very well. A lot of unnecessary code is removed and the whole project looks cleaner.

This is a different editor and would offer different ways of reusing as distinct modules. That said, feel free to add the ways in which you are using the wp_editor() API at the moment to give more context. Thanks!
