What is Aloha Editor?
support of xHTML5. You can integrate it in a CMS, blog, wiki software or any other project
where you need to edit content with a web based tool. Use it like a supersonic textarea.
You can edit almost any DOM element with this supersonic textarea, but you need to care about
configuration and storage.
What Aloha Editor is NOT!
Aloha Editor is NOT a HTML Editor to install on a desktop nor it is a CMS.
Why the HTML5 Editor?
Aloha Editor works perfectly in all current browsers and websites using HTML4! It is the HTML5 Editor because it implements all functionality
respecting with no compromise the HTML5 specification. It aims to generate full compliant xHTML5 content, but you don't need to use HTML5 specific methods, if you don't want to. The Aloha Editor uses and extends the attribute
contenteditable, which was introduced in the HTML standard with version 5. Most current
browsers support that attribute, but their implementation is inconsistent due to erroneous
implementations and the lack of detail of the HTML5 specification when it comes to DOM manipulation. Aloha Editor makes contenteditable useable.
The Aloha Spirit
Aloha is about passion! The Aloha Editor is designed and made with passion from real passionate people.
Aloha Editor's vision is to edit anywhere. We move the user
to the center of everything. Every action should be completed with the minimum possible
interactions. Everything that can be done automatically should be done
automatically. All interactions should react in realtime and give immediate clear feedback
to the user. The user should see the exact result of its action immediately. No apply
or confirm action should be necessary. It's done when you do it. Instead everthing can
"Clemens and I started the project on January 18th. We wanted to build the world's most advanced editor
and I wanted a codename for the project. So we looked into wikipedia and I found out that James Cook discovered
Hawaii on January 18th.
Our Editor should invite people to create and change content easily. So "Aloha", the famous
hawaiian word meaning affection, peace, compassion and mercy and which is used as english greeting for saying
"hello" was our choice at hand - The Aloha Editor was born." - Haymo Meran
