Rich text editor for Spree with Image and File uploading in-place

branch: master

Spree Editor

Build Status Code Climate

This extension provides an inline rich-text editor for Spree. It implements different types of editors:


  1. Add the Spree Editor gem to your Gemfile:
gem 'spree_editor', github: 'spree/spree_editor'
  1. Run:
$ bundle install
$ rails g spree_editor:install
  1. If using CKEditor, and would like to enable file uploads run the ckeditor generator:
$ rails g ckeditor:install --orm=active_record --backend=paperclip && rake db:migrate`
  1. In order to secure your file uploads to only be accessed by admins you will also need to configure config/initializers/ckeditor.rb:
config.authorize_with :cancan, Spree::Ability


Preferences can be updated within the admin panel under "configuration" then "rich editor".

Or you may set them with an initializer within your application:

SpreeEditor::Config.tap do |config|
  config.ids = 'product_description page_body event_body'


To obtain support for multiple languages with TinyMCE add tinymce-rails-langs to your Gemfile:

gem 'tinymce-rails-langs'

TinyMCE will not be loaded unless it finds a language package matching your Spree::Config.default_locale.
