And do you expect a piece of software to be able to have its behavior completely changed with no coding experience required? Most applications will not allow the sort of adaptability Atom has, and those that do allow it frequently require plugin developers to know languages like C++ and Java.
this seems to be something that you actually use to build into a site, im going to dl it and see if it actually works as regular editor after downloading it since you had mentioned in early on
nope dl button doesnt download it like every other site out there, instead lots of clicks to go some weird file names, and cant even download
The download button goes to a page that offers instructions for getting the file in a wide variety of ways. If you aren’t putting it in a web site, don’t pay attention to the CDN instructions. You do want to make it into an Atom package, so you do need to read the NPM instruction, but first you need to learn about how Node works.
it seems that you dont appreciate how hard this all is
You have just bitten off more than you can chew. Since you like analogies, try this one: you haven’t started crawling yet, but you saw somebody running, and now you aren’t happy with anything less than completing your first marathon. But until you get to the point where you can run confidently, you have to start below your ambitions. And you can’t get mad at the sidewalk for hurting your feet, because it’s partially that the sidewalk is hard, but also partially that your feet are inexperienced. For experienced feet, the hard sidewalk is useful and gets you places efficiently.
Three words: it was hell.
That specific comment is regarding the implementation of the rich-text editor in HTML in the first place. But you don’t have to rewrite CKEditor, or Quill. All you would have to do is take the code from your preferred editor and plug it into Atom using Atom’s existing package API, and that’s not a marathon task. That’s at best a charity fun run, or maybe an extended power walk. Atom has documentation that will help you every step of the way, but it won’t tell you what to do. It will tell you what tools are available, and if you are creative and enterprising enough, you can make Atom do what you want.
