This module allows you to use a ckeditor form field more easily using some basic view helpers


As usual, install the module via composer, either add a require statement to composer.json:

    "require": {
        "satsume/ckeditor-module": "0.*"

And then let it install/update

composer update

Or use just the command line, like so:

./composer.phar require satsume/ckeditor-module


Add a form field like you normally would:

  'type' => 'CKEditorModule\Form\Element\CKEditor',
  'name' => 'editor',
  'options' => array(
    'label' => 'Editor content',
    'ckeditor' => array(
		// add anny config you would normaly add via CKEDITOR.editorConfig
        'language' => 'nl',
        'uiColor' => '#AADC6E',

As type in a Form __construct() you cannot use 'ckeditor' this is because of the way the form element manager works. If you are using the form element manager to create forms and you're adding form fields in the init() method, you can use 'ckeditor' as type.

More info can be found in zf2's documentation


If you include the CKFinderModule in your application, the ckfinder config is automatically added to the ckeditor config:

'ckeditor_ckfinder_options' => array(
  'filebrowserBrowseUrl' => '/ckfinder/ckfinder.html',
  'filebrowserImageBrowseUrl' => '/ckfinder/ckfinder.html?type=Images',
  //'filebrowserFlashBrowseUrl' => '/ckfinder/ckfinder.html?type=Flash',
  'filebrowserUploadUrl' => '/ckfinder/core/connector/php/connector.php?command=QuickUpload&type=Files',
  'filebrowserImageUploadUrl' => '/ckfinder/core/connector/php/connector.php?command=QuickUpload&type=Images',
  //'filebrowserFlashUploadUrl' => '/ckfinder/core/connector/php/connector.php?command=QuickUpload&type=Flash',
  'filebrowserWindowWidth' => '1000',
  'filebrowserWindowHeight' => '700'

( I turned off the flash browser, because I never use flash in my applications anymore )
