Radiant Wym Editor Filter Extension

Author Benny Degezelle - Gorilla Webdesign
Version 0.4
Contact: benny AT gorilla-webdesign DOT be

This filter adds a WYSIWYM editor to Radiant.


The WYMeditor is aware of and interacts with the following extensions, but these are not required:

  • Paperclipped
    • Open the asset bucket from the WYMeditor toolbar
    • Adding asset with drag'n'drop from the bucket
  • Page Preview
    • Open preview from the WYMeditor toolbar

About WYMeditor

WYMeditor's main concept is to leave details of the document's visual layout, and to concentrate on its structure and meaning, while trying to give the user as much comfort as possible (at least as WYSIWYG editors).

WYMeditor has been created to generate perfectly structured XHTML strict code, to conform to the W3C XHTML specifications and to facilitate further processing by modern applications.

WymEditor in action


Run this rake command to copy all needed files into the public folder:

rake radiant:extensions:wym_editor_filter:install

That's it! You should now have "Wym Editor" in the filters dropdown on the page edit screen. Selecting this will spawn a WYMeditor instance.

It's a good idea to manage your extensions with Ray.


Run this rake command to update all files in public folder:

rake radiant:extensions:wym_editor_filter:update
