Adds an editor instance to the editor collection. This will also set it as the active editor.

tinymce

addI18n()

Adds a language pack, this gets called by the loaded language files like en.js.

tinymce

createEditor()

Creates an editor instance and adds it to the EditorManager collection.

tinymce

each()

Performs an iteration of all items in a collection such as an object or array. This method will execute the callback function for each item in the collection, if the callback returns false the iteration will terminate. The callback has the following format: cb(value, key_or_index).

tinymce

explode()

Splits a string but removes the whitespace before and after each value.
