Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BROMBOROUGH, England - Jun 12, 2017 - If you’re developing with Ruby on Rails, and need an input area to manage backend posts/pages etc, you have several options in terms of a WYSIWYG editor. Unfortunately, due to the relatively complex nature of these scripts, it can be difficult to appreciate which one you should use. This newly released tutorial shows exactly how to pick the best WYSIWYG editor for your Rails app, and how to deploy it with image uploads.
If you’re trying to build the likes of a CMS or ECommerce application in Rails, you need to appreciate a base fact — every system is the same.
When you use a WYSIWYG, you’re basically saving HTML code into the database. Regardless of the potential security implications of this, the reality is that behind the pretty images / titles, HTML code remains. As such, if you want to get some sort of “input” system in the backend of your app, you simply need a way to manage the HTML code you’re inputting.
CKEditor is the only editor (at present) which not only has a native port to Rails, but is also integrated directly into the backend of the Rails infrastructure – ActiveRecord / Paperclip. If you understand how to set it up correctly, you not only are able to get the library to show on screen, but are able to upload images directly to your server. To do this, you obviously need to understand how it saves images to the database etc, which is what this new tutorial goes into depth to explain.
