'Sup Web Development and Programming Support forum!
I'm working on creating a realtime BBcode editor (as the title suggests), and I think the version I have now is somewhat stable enough to release. Keep in mind that it'll be buggy, and won't support as many tags as Tycoon Talk, but it gets the job done for writing huge posts and not having to hit 'preview' every time you want to see what happened.
Here's how to use this thing:
- Download the file somewhere in your localhost directory, and extract it
- Go to the newly extracted directory in your web browser (probably localhost/Realtime BBcode Editor/)
- Write some BBcode!
You might notice there's no WYSIWYG editor. I tried to keep the code small and compact, and it would be easy enough to add one like TinyMCE. You type in the box at the bottom and watch the result appear at the top.
Note: You need the bbcode PECL extension installed to use this (I know, it's bad to rely on plugins). This was originally intended for me, but I decided to show it to you guys and get some feedback
Hope you all like it!
