Solidus Editor

This extension provides an inline rich-text editor for Solidus. It is based off spree_editor. It implements different types of editors:

Please not that this extension is just a simple integration of some pretty complex gems: ckeditor and tinymce-rails.

If you have issues, please check their issues trackers first.


  1. Add the Solidus Editor gem to your Gemfile:

    gem 'solidus_editor', github: 'solidusio-contrib/solidus_editor', branch: 'master'
  2. Run:

    $ bundle install
    $ rails g solidus_editor:install
  3. If using CKEditor, and would like to enable file uploads run the ckeditor generator:

    $ rails g ckeditor:install --orm=active_record --backend=paperclip && rake db:migrate
  4. In order to secure your file uploads to only be accessed by admins you will also need to configure config/initializers/ckeditor.rb:

    config.authorize_with :cancan, Spree::Ability
  5. In order to precompile CKEditor's generated assets, you will need to add a line in config/initializers/assets.rb:

    Rails.application.config.assets.precompile += %w( ckeditor/*)


Preferences can be updated within the admin panel under "configuration" then "rich editor".

Or you may set them with an initializer within your application:

SpreeEditor::Config.tap do |config|
  config.ids = 'product_description page_body event_body'

  # change the editor to CKEditor
  config.current_editor = 'CKEditor'

The default preference is:

  enabled: true,
  current_editor: 'TinyMCE',
  ids: 'product_description page_body'


To obtain support for multiple languages with TinyMCE add tinymce-rails-langs to your Gemfile:

gem 'tinymce-rails-langs'

TinyMCE will not be loaded unless it finds a language package matching your Spree::Config.default_locale.
