ActiveWrite fork of https://github.com/ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic.

Periodically, this can be synched from the CKEditor master to pick up fixes.



To use some CKEditor features (server-side storage, others) you must have an editor bundle registered into your CKE environment with a unique version tag. CKE uses that editor build in the background to load and save the document.

When you open a doc from the app, you must pass in the editor bundle ID to use in the editor instance. If the editor hasn't been registered, that's an error.

[] what happens if you create a doc with bundle 1 then later re-open the same doc using bundle 2? Which one is used? Is there an error message from CKE?

WE MAY NEED THE SAME EDITOR BUNDLE VERSION LATER to look at older docs. So we also have to keep a version history of any bundles actually used.


Do whatever you need to change the plugins, menu config and so on.

Local build: npm run preversion. This will perform a build and make a git commit flagged as "internal". Manually bump the version in package.json, run npm run build to create a minified editor bundle and test the editor build on the local machine (path-based yarn install in AW or use "publishing" step below / push to npm for package delivery). Version bump is mandatory for any build that leaves your machine for any reason including just being registered via the CKEditor management API, even if not used for any documents.

Both the preversion and the build step run a hashing protocol to determine a unique but not too-changeable bundle ID. The hash will changes if a relevant section of several files changes (including package.json, package-lock.json, webpack.config.js, the editor source ckeditor.js, and the hash utility file itself get-sha1sum.sh). The hash ignores change in the parts of package.json that don't affect a compile, like version number or package name. This means the hash will not change before and after you bump the version number.

BE CAREFUL ABOUT CHANGING THE CONTENTS OF THOSE FILE. Actual, meaningful changes are fine. Comment and whitespace changes that don't affect operation will change the hash for no good reason. That causes unnecessary complexity.

Publishing: make sure the npm run build step completed above and that you bumped the version number in package.json, and have done a local commit and also push to remote. Push to public npm via npm publish . --access public then see https://www.npmjs.com/package/@activewrite/ckeditor5-build-classic. This needs to be a public npm repo for now to make Netlify builds simple.

Uploading: to use CKEditor server-side storage, our custom editor needs to be uploaded as a bundle to their servers (and the same bundle version must then be used in our site -- must coordinate timing per instance). Use the utility functions in the "aw-ckeditor5-apicontrol" project to do that. See that repo for examples of how to upload the editor bundle with version.
