Blogilo’s new WYSIWYG editor

Yes, Blogilo has a new WYSIWYG editor. (Based on WebKit)

This was a long time wish of us, because Qt text editor lacks good html support, and does not support some html tags at all, and supports some with hacks.
And now this new editor is ready for KDEPIM 4.6 release, and first preview of it will be released with KDE 4.6 Beta1 release:
Blogilo WYSIWYG editor
Of course it needs more tuning.
Its big problem instead of previous editor is lack of Spell checking support, that I didn’t find a good way to implement this, due most of current KDE highlighting/spelling supports are based on KTextEdit (As I found) Any idea?

    Hi, nice work!

    Is this a component that might be suitable for usage as a mail composer too, or perhaps extend-able to be? If so we might want to extract into a library and reuse in KMail as well.

    rekonq suffers from the same problem :-)

    (apparently it is a QtWebKit “bug” though…)

    Please allow saving of html files locally “Save as…”


  5. Just curious – why couldn’t you use KTextEdit?

  7. Não está bom? oO
    Nunca me deu problema. Estou usando a versão 1.0.1, no Fedora 14 e tudo me parece normal.

    Muito obrigado pelo programa. Me facilita muito a escrita… uso, inclusive, para rascunhar minhas estórias que nada tem haver com meu blog.


  8. Nice work! I’m trying to develop a WYSIWYG HTML editor for myself. In fact, I tried QTextEdit. But I have some problem: the QTextCursor::mergeBlockCharFormat() does not work if no selection in this line. I just want to change the whole line format to new style if no selected text. Do you know how to do this?

    Fuck, fix the damn spell check thing, it’s a pain in the ass that it does not work. Code is a mess up too.

    Want to downgrade but it want to downgrade all KDE. Shit.


  10. I just wondering, what happened with the Bloglio’s development? The last update was in 2010 and it rest too much to improve. I think that with the lack of a good Qt blog client and KDE growing every day, this project will continue to be a great success.

    When you were developing Blogilo and putting this “WSYWYG” editor in, did you never check the code output?

    I wonder, maybe this is rhetorical, because it is something that is glaringly obvious to anyone who cares to look, it’s even shown in the code tab on Blogilo.

    Really, have a look at the source code on your blog post here, anyone can of course, and you’ll find it is garbage HTML.

    Blogilo is completely and uttlerly useless as a blogging tool because of this and I find it surprising (incedible) that no-one seems to have noticed or cared.
