The Denver Drupal Meetup

Open Media Foundation 700 Kalamath , Denver, CO 80204 (map)

Component design has been a huge leap forward for content editors, giving great flexibility to what an editor can create with minimal knowledge of HTML. As site builders, we can combine components with WYSIWYG editors and expand on these tools to make specifically the WYSIWYG editor work harder for a content editor’s precise needs while providing specific markup to match designs.

Drupal 8 has adopted a custom version of CKEditor to be its core WYSIWYG editor and this move requires that CKEditor plugins be integrated into a site using a module. Site builders can then use any of the extensive plugins that the CKEditor community has developed or roll their own custom plugin to fit their particular needs. By creating a module, we can also leverage other parts of the site to be dynamically included in the plugin providing a content editor with a superior editing experience.

In this session, Aubrie Hill will show us how to:

* Build a module that integrates a basic CKEditor plugin

* Define plugin’s CKEDITOR.config options

* Create a custom CKEditor plugin that incorporates a taxonomy

Pizza and socializing starts at 6:30 p.m. Discussion and presentations start at 7. At 8:30 we'll head down to Renegade Brewing Co. to continue hanging out.
