Using CKEditor add-on in eZ Platform UI

This bundle is a good showcase for using CK Editor plugin in eZ Platform. It relies on Special Characters CKEditor add-on.

If you want to make a similar bundle for any other CKEditor add-on, just follow these steps:

  1. Add CKEditor add-on to your source: src/bundle/Resources/public/js/alloyeditor/plugins/specialchar.
  2. Create an external source for previously added add-on: src/bundle/Resources/public/js/alloyeditor/externals.js
  3. Add plugin external source to encore configuration: src/bundle/Resources/encore/ez.config.manager.js
  4. Register added plugin in eZ Platform Admin UI: src/bundle/Resources/config/ezrichtext.yaml
  5. In most cases, CKEditor plugins have their buttons, but they require minor CSS fixes to be nice and shiny in eZ Platform Admin UI. Alternatively, you can create a new button: src/bundle/Resources/public/js/alloyeditor/buttons/special-characters.js
  6. Enable the button from the previous step in desired Online Editor toolbars: src/bundle/Resources/config/ezpublish.yaml
