CKEditor 4 - The best browser-based WYSIWYG editor
This repository contains the development version of CKEditor 4.
Attention: The code in this repository should be used locally and for development purposes only. We do not recommend using it in production environment because the user experience will be very limited. For that purpose, you should either build the editor (see below) or use an official release available on the CKEditor website.
There is no special installation procedure to install the development code. Simply clone it to any local directory and you are set.
This repository contains the following branches:
- master – Development of the upcoming minor release.
- major – Development of the upcoming major release.
- stable – Latest stable release tag point (non-beta).
- latest – Latest release tag point (including betas).
- release/A.B.x (e.g. 4.0.x, 4.1.x) – Release freeze, tests and tagging. Hotfixing.
Note that both master and major are under heavy development. Their code did not pass the release testing phase, though, so it may be unstable.
Additionally, all releases have their respective tags in the following form: 4.4.0, 4.4.1, etc.
samples/ folder contains some examples that can be used to test your
installation. Visit CKEditor 4 Examples for plenty of samples
showcasing numerous editor features, with source code readily available to view, copy

Building a Release
A release-optimized version of the development code can be easily created
dev/builder/build.sh script can be used for that purpose:
A "release ready" working copy of your development code will be built in the new
dev/builder/release/ folder. An Internet connection is necessary to run the
builder, for its first time at least.
