Looking at the codes I have written in the past makes me feel ashamed of myself 馃榿 There is so much boilerplate that a person need to add in order to implement a feature and the codebase is very hard to understand right now. I think this is what keeps people away from contributing to the project. So I decided to rewrite Jekyll Admin from scratch and already started working on it. I'm using Ant Design for UI components. It has dozens of reusable components which will allow us integrate any component with a little modification easily without implementing our own. In addition it will reduce the codebase a lot since we will not be having custom components and their tests anymore. Maintaining the project will be a lot easier. Another gain of Ant Design is that we don't have to thing about design anymore. We can follow its design guide.

The most important part is I'm changing the infrastructure and adding some great libraries from the community which will solve our problems very easily. I decided to use redux-form for managing forms in general, react-intl for translations (it's time to have this since we have lots of languages already translated), api-sauce to talk to the API in a more robust way and so many other things that I have in mind.

I'm planning to release the new version at the end of the year (being very optimistic 馃榿). Hopefully manage to find enough time to achieve this. Until then I won't be fixing the current bugs or introduce new features. My main goal is while doing this, I need to cover all of the current features and solve as much issues as possible we have now. Very exciting about this. See you guys when this is released

Ant is too much verbose, no? Why not keep things simple with Semantic UI?

Is anything I could do to help? I'm good UI designer.

@MatheusRV Yeah, but we use only what we need, other things will not be in the production bundle.
Thanks for asking. Your help is really appreciated after the release. For now, the main focus is to release fast without getting into design.

It would be great to have a visual editor. I have done this myself two ways on different projects.

  1. Create a custom design and implementation. Here is a video I made that shows a tweet stream editor. Three properties of an HTML form can be edited live (content is continually rendered): tweet text, link url and image url.

  2. Use a package like CKEditor for editing posts. I have integrated CKEditor into another project and the experience was terrific all around.

Regardless of how it is implemented, the visual editor should allow users to edit headers and their fields. Here is an example of the fields I am thinking of:

---
layout: post
title: My Title
category: MyCategory
---

The main portion of the posting would be displayed and editable in whatever types of CKEditor editors you folks decide to implement.

There is the Toast Editor, its a visual MD editor, good for people that don't know MD.

Where do I find the code of this new version?
