Rails 3.2 Integration for TinyMCE

The tinymce-rails gem integrates the TinyMCE editor with the Rails 3.2 asset pipeline.


1. Add tinymce-rails to your Gemfile

gem 'tinymce-rails'

Then run bundle install.

**2. Use TinyMCE

Add to your application.js:

//= require tinymce-jquery

and use TinyMCE in your view:

<%= text_area_tag :editor, "", :rows => 40, :cols => 120 %>

<script type="text/javascript">
  $(function() {
      theme: 'advanced'

Custom Plugins & Skins

To use custom plugins or skins, simply add the files to your asset load path so that they are locatable at a path beneath tinymce/plugins/ or tinymce/themes/advanced/skins/.

For example, a plugin called mycustomplugin could have its main JS file at app/assets/javascripts/tinymce/plugins/mycustomplugin/editor_plugin.js.

Any files with a path beginning with tinymce/ will be automatically precompiled.


When new versions of TinyMCE are released, simply update the tinymce-rails gem to the latest version. There is no need to run any extra rake tasks (apart from rake assets:precompile).
