Front-end Editor

This is the first Front-end Editor post (see Inline Editing Front-end Editor on the Features as Plugins Tracking page).

If you haven’t heard about it before, you should definitely take a look at the overview, where you can read about the problems we’re trying to solve and where we’ll keep all the information.

A prototype is currently in development, it can be found in the plugin directory and on GitHub as a mirror.

Here are a few screenshots:

TinyMCE 4.x




Distraction free writing?

Of course this is just one approach. Another could be @scribu’s Front-end Editor.

Excited? Get involved!

We’d really like to hear (and see) your thoughts! Whether it’s feedback to the current prototype, or ideas, examples of how other platforms implement front-end editing, wireframes or even working prototypes – everything is welcome.

We’re still looking for more people to join us: developers, designers, users… If you’re interested, please leave a comment.

Our weekly IRC chats are on Thursdays, 20:00 UTC. The next one will be on September 19 20:00 UTC.
