WYSIWYG editor for Foswiki


today I had a presentation in my company, when I tried to encourage to start creating documentation/ begin collaboration by means of Foswiki.
We need something which supports typing an equations, create hierarchical structure of documents, Active Directory support and advanced permissions management.
It seems for me that Foswiki is an ideal solution.

Unfortunately, it was mentioned that WYSIWYG editor for Mediawiki is much more user-friendly and much more powerful:
Moreover, if there's so beautiful, easy to use editor, there must be WYSIWYG formula editor instead of typing LateX (as it is in Foswiki).

To be honest - on screens, editor for Mediawiki really looks superior to that available in Foswiki. Is there any possibility to embed something more powerfull in Foswiki?

I found this list of Maths Expression editors here (not all of these are Javascript based)

I quickly looked at two javascript based WYSIWYG Maths Expression Editors
  1. with a connection to University Eindhoven
  2. WIRIS with a connection Technical University of Catalonia

The 1st of these can produce MathML (not Latex) and is open source.

The second appears to be commercial; extensive features; integrates with TinyMCE and produces MathML & Latex.

Some work was done on integrating CKEditor into Foswiki which may provide an even better editing experience. WIRIS also integrates into CKditor.

In short, Foswiki can already achieve some of your needs (as you noted), and I am sure you can gain the extra features you are after, but that will probably take some work to complete the integration. You can always contact a Support/WikiConsultants to help you with this.

Sounds great for me!

However, I have another issue.

Roman, that's not related to the original question, so I created Support.Question1489 to cover this new question and answered it.

Please create new questions when required. It makes for better support experience for others who may be asking similar questions.
