Blabbing aside, this is the plugin that you should use when you're tired of, scared of, or otherwise not comfortable using Markdown to author your pages from within the Grav Admin Plugin. It's vastly configurable, so you should have no issues adapting it to your liking, and its default configuration has been made with consistency and ease of use in mind, significantly reducing the chance that you have to change anything at all.
There are two methods of installing the TinyMCE Editor Integration plugin, each of them available with the use of the admin plugin or manually.
The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM). It can be used from within the admin plugin, or as a standalone executable accessible through your system's terminal (also called the command line).
In the admin plugin, go to Plugins > Add and enter the plugin's name there. When it is found, click the Install button next to it.
Run the following From the root of your Grav install:
bin/gpm install tinymce-editor
Either of these will install the TinyMCE Editor Integration plugin into your
/user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under
You may also decide that you want to install the plugin manually, which may prove very useful if you want to use the latest, unreleased features of the plugin.
In the admin plugin, under Configuration > System > Advanced make sure that non-GPM direct installs are allowed, then go to Tools > Direct install, and paste the following into the textbox under Install Package via Remote URL Reference:
Download the latest development version of the plugin and unzip it into your
/user/plugins/directory within Grav, then rename the unzipped directory to
You should now have all the plugin files under
Before configuring this plugin, you should copy the
/user/plugins/tinymce-editor/tinymce-editor.yaml file to
/user/config/plugins and only edit that copy.
This is the default configuration and an explanation of available options:
enabled: true apikey: '' # The API key to use with TinyMCE Cloud. If empty, local copy of TinyMCE will be used plugins: # The plugins to load with TinyMCE - advlist - anchor - autoresize - charmap - code - colorpicker - emoticons - fullscreen - hr - image - insertdatetime - link - lists - media - nonbreaking - pagebreak - paste - print - searchreplace - table - textcolor - toc - visualchars - wordcount parameters: # Additional parameters to pass to TinyMCE during its initialization - name: fontsize_formats value: '6pt 7pt 8pt 9pt 10pt 11pt 12pt 13pt 14pt 15pt 16pt 18pt 20pt 22pt 24pt 26pt 28pt 32pt 36pt 40pt 44pt 48pt 54pt 60pt 66pt 72pt 80pt 88pt 96pt' - name: paste_data_images value: '1' menubar: true # If enabled, a menu bar will be present over the toolbar menu: # The tree of the TinyMCE menu elements, ignored if menu bar is disabled - title: File items: 'newdocument print' - title: Edit items: 'undo redo | cut copy paste pastetext | selectall | searchreplace' - title: Insert items: 'media link image | pagebreak charmap anchor hr insertdatetime nonbreaking toc' - title: View items: 'visualchars visualaid | fullscreen' - title: Format items: 'bold italic underline strikethrough superscript subscript | formats | removeformat' - title: Table items: 'inserttable tableprops deletetable | cell row column' - title: Tools items: code toolbar: # The toolbar layout for TinyMCE to use - row: 'newdocument print | cut copy paste | undo redo | searchreplace visualchars | table image media emoticons toc | insertdatetime pagebreak charmap | link unlink anchor | blockquote nonbreaking hr | code' - row: 'formatselect | fontselect fontsizeselect | bold italic underline strikethrough | alignleft aligncenter alignright alignjustify | indent outdent | forecolor backcolor | bullist numlist | superscript subscript | removeformat | fullscreen' branding: false # If enabled, a "Powered by TinyMCE" branding will be present at the bottom of the editor statusbar: true # If enabled, a status bar will be present at the bottom of the editor
When more customization is desired than the above options allow, you may create a directory called
/user/data, and copy a subset of
/user/plugins/tinymce-editor in there. The changes to the contents of that directory will be reflected in the plugin's behavior, and they will not be affected by updates. Currently supported subsets are the directories
templates, and their entire contents should, when needed, be copied to
NOTE: It is recommended to disable Markdown processing in
/user/config/system.yaml or under Configuration > System > Content in the admin plugin to lower the resource usage once this plugin has been installed.
The plugin itself is ready to be used out of the box, set up with a sensible default configuration. It will replace all the Markdown page editor fields in the admin plugin with TinyMCE.
Many thanks to everyone involved in the creation of TinyMCE, the only FOSS WYSIWYG HTML editor that can actually do just what is expected of it with a little configuration.
Huge thanks to the Grav Chat community for providing help with Grav whenever possible, and to those involved in the creation of Grav, a CMS with an actually beautiful architecture.
Thanks to those the plugin was originally made for – my family with their websites – and to those others who may now use it as well.
Last but not least,
three tanks many thanks to the very important person hiding behind this noble nickname on GitHub for keeping sanity staying understanding while I've been unresponsive wasting a huge amount of time creating this plugin.
