CKEditor for RAP

Important Notice: As of 2013-11-08 the code and the development have been transferred to

The code is now available from the RAP Incubator project at

The new Git repository can be found at

This is a custom widget for the Remote Application Platform (RAP) that wraps the CKEditor, a web-based WYSIWYG/Rich-Text editor. This version is based on the remote API that has been added in RAP 2.0. If you wish to run it with RAP 1.5, check out the "streams/1.5" branch.


Currently, the API consists of the two methods getText and setText. The text can be any valid HTML, but should be limited to the subset the editor can handle.


The editor can be customized by editing the files in the src/resources folder of the com.eclipsesource.widgets.ckeditor bundle. You might need to clear the browsers cache and restart the server for all changes to take effect.

Editor Configuration

Editing the file config.js lets you change the toolbar, language, and formatting options (fonts, colors). Be careful, all changes here bear the risk of breaking the editor.

Editor Theming

To change the icons, edit or replace icons.png. To change the editors colors, borders, spacings, etc, edit editor.css. You can use a tool like Firebug to examine which CSS classes are used where in the editor.

Advanced Customization

For various reasions some plugins have been removed from ckeditor.js and disabled in config.js, therefore not all options of the full CKEdtior are working. If you wish, you can compile your own ckeditor.js. Get more info here: The ckeditor.pack used for this project can be found in the bundles docs folder.
