CKEditor Accessibility Checker
This repository contains the development version of the Accessibility Checker Plugin for CKEditor.
- CKEditor 4.3.0 or later.
- jQuery 1.x or later in order to run Quail.
Accessibility Checker has the same browser compatibility as CKEditor, with the following exceptions:
- Internet Explorer 8 is not supported.
- Internet Explorer 9 Quirks Mode is not supported.
If you are not interested in developing core Accessibility Checker features, feel free to skip this section.
# Assuming that $CKEDITOR_DEV_PATH is your CKEditor path. cd $CKEDITOR_DEV_PATH/plugins git clone email@example.com:cksource/ckeditor-plugin-a11ychecker.git a11ychecker
Checkout the Balloon Plugin
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:cksource/ckeditor-plugin-balloonpanel.git balloonpanel
You will also need to build the CSS, since we use LESS.
npm install grunt build-css
Pro tip: You can also use
Note that developer version requires RequireJS, so make sure you have it loaded.
For more information about the distribution version see the
Building a Distribution Version
You can build a distribution package using Grunt.
Main changes in the distribution version:
- It does not use RequireJS, so all classes are inlined.
- It contains the
CKEDITOR.plugins.a11ychecker.revproperty with a revision hash.
- Quick-fixes are minified.
- It will automatically create a
ziparchive so that you can share it without publishing the code in a public repository.
To build Accessibility Checker go to the
a11ychecker plugin directory and execute the following commands:
npm install grunt build
Build files are put in the
build directory of the
a11ychecker plugin directory.
Building a Full Distribution
Since Accessibility Checker actually has a few dependencies, you might want to include all the dependent plugins just to make the installation process easier.
build-full feature is available for this purpose. It will include dependent plugins in the
build directory and create a
npm install grunt build-full
Another person might now simply get the
zip, extract it to the
ckeditor/plugins directory and everything is ready to go.
Including a Different Quail Configuration
You might want to change the default Quail guidelines configuration. Doing so might have some benefits. For example, the users of your Accessibility Checker distribution will not need to edit the
config.js on their own after your releases. You can do that by adding an extra
--quail-config="foo.json" CLI parameter to the build command. It should point to a JSON file that contains an array of strings. For example:
[ "aAdjacentWithSameResourceShouldBeCombined", "documentVisualListsAreMarkedUp", "headerH1", "headerH2", "headerH3", "imgAltIsTooLong", "pNotUsedAsHeader" ]
Then you might include it in the build with:
grunt build-full --quail-config="_local/custom.json"
Including a Different Quail Build
You can actually use a totally different custom Quail build. To do that, provide a path to your custom Quail build using the
grunt build-full --quail=/libs/js/customQuailBuild`
Where Do I Start?
Accessibility Checker comes with custom
bender.js configuration, because it requires some custom Bender plugins that CKEditor does not need. You should use the
-c CLI parameter to point to the custom configuration file.
bender server run -H 0.0.0.0 -c plugins/a11ychecker/bender.js
