[UNLIKELY] Update Markdown editor component

To enhance the editor experience when working with Markdown, it would be nice to change editor plugin to a bit more maintained and feature rich markdown plugin, that have the possibility to give a more similar editor experence as when editing rich text.

I’ve been looking through for what’s out there, and it seems like https://github.com/nhn/tui.editor is the best thing currently available.

Would that be something you think make sense?

In general yes, but the tui editor is really buggy. I have integrated it in a client project and it is no fun.

Furthermore it hides the markdown syntax. I am not sure if I like that or not. There is also slate which looks interesting: https://github.com/ianstormtaylor/slate

Okay, i think the options switching between markdown, and rich text is nice, since it cater for differents stakeholders. Sometimes markdown is bit hard to understands for editors, that is not technical.

But of cause it should not be buggy :slight_smile:

Have you any experience with https://quilljs.com/ ?

Never heard of it. But you could write a custom editor and try it out :wink:

I have moved this task, because the requirements are still unclear for me.
