A Cappuccino control providing rich text editing through use of a browser driving content editable field. Under the hood, the Google Closure Library editor is used.

Until a proper CPTextView is written this will probably be one of the most full featured rich text editor for Cappuccino.

  • Bold, italics, underline, strike through.
  • Left, right, center and justify alignment.
  • Bulleted and numbered lists.
  • Links.
  • Images.
  • Fonts.
  • Outputs regular HTML.
  • Vaguely resembles a proper CPTextView in its API.


Link the WKTextView folder into your Frameworks folder.

Create and combine the Resources/WKTextView/closure-editor.js file using the WKTextView modified version of the Closure editor:

git submodule init
git submodule update
cd auxiliary
# Edit to provide the correct path to closure.jar.


textView = [[WKTextView alloc] initWithFrame:effectiveFrame];
[textView setAutoresizingMask:CPViewWidthSizable | CPViewHeightSizable];
[textView setDelegate:self];

The view needs to load resources such as editor.html and closure-editor.js. Wait for the textViewDidLoad: delegate call before using.


A sample program is provided in the sample folder. To compile and view, run the script, then open up index-debug.html in a browser:

open sample.dist/index-debug.html
