Articles: Scribite 5 released

Contributed by espaan on May 15, 2014 - 07:30 PM


Scribite the WYSIWYG module has been updated to 5.0. Scribite is a module that inserts a selected javascript WYSIWYG editor into textareas through the use of Zikula hooks. This release is for Zikula Core >= 1.3.x

Scribite 5.0.0 is a significant departure from previous versions, so read on.

Thanks to a lot of developers working on it, craigh, nmpetkov, cmfcmf, shefik, and others that I forget now.

  • The biggest usage change from previous versions is that the model is changed from manually including module/textareas to manually excluding them. Scribite is now a strictly 'hook-based' module and the loader cannot be called via an API call anymore.

  • Scribite now assumes that (in general) most users want all textareas to have a text editor. Simply hook Scribite to your subscriber module and it works! For 'power users', fine-grain configuration is possible however (more with some editors than others).

  • The choice of editors has also become wider and configuring the editors can be done a lot easier from within Zikula itself. See the editor module plugins here. There is also more information on the plugins.

  • Other significant changes include storing all data in the modvars table instead of a module-specific table, and the conversion of all editors to module plugins. This will make future addition/subtraction of editors very easy.

  • Another new is that 3rd party modules can now provide plugins to scribite from within the module itself. By adhering to the new external plugin structure for the editors that support this, it is now easier to make a editor plugin.

For more information on the 5.0.0 update see Fixed tickets Closed tickets 5.0 milestone.

Scribite 5 works best with the current master versions of Content, News and other modules. They will be released soon.

Are there known incompatibilities with particular modules, or versions of modules?

core 1.3.x and compatibility
It is for Zikula Core 1.3.x and beyond, added in the text, thanks.
Most modules should work fine, since it is still hook based, but Content was not hook based in the past and for that you should use the current master version in github.
