What does your rich text editor
Nothing? Limited features? Fully-featured?
Of the 5 most popular alternative rich text editors, TinyMCE:
- Is fully-featured, with ample plugins
- Fits all kinds of use cases
A default set of toolbar options gets you started – then configure it (using custom configs, your own code, or APIs) to suit your UX demands.
Buy built-in customizable features
vs self-build a rich text editor
Fully customizable solution which, if open source, comes with core features plus advanced features such as tables, full image support, etc.
All come with full UI, some have custom mobile optimization to adjust and fit into any UI environment.
Full access to code base (TinyMCE + CKEditor), APIs and UI customization options. Simplifies and lowers amount (and cost) of custom setup work, use case based specializations, user customizations and ongoing maintenance.
Editor framework plus
Code base access varies, so the level of customization fluctuates across different editors.
Considered limited in their feature-set and have a smaller selection of features that fail to satisfy more complex use cases.
Any attempt to expand or customize the in-built limitations of these editors, requires more custom coded build-out, longer development time and deep domain knowledge to set up and satisfy use case specific requirements.
Provide a foundation devoid of any UI, and usually also any features over and above the simple bold, italic, underline style features.
To configure, build-out, and extend the editor (not to mention build your own customized UI) you have full access to the code base and no need to work around a predetermined user interface.
However, deep domain knowledge of rich text editor complexities and UI expertise is needed, plus ample development time for bug fixes, edge cases.

TinyMCE can be used for?
to kickstart your rich text editing project
"TinyMCE satisfied our needs at a competitive cost, and we were able to integrate it without restructuring our product."
"TinyMCE should be at the top of any list if you’re looking for a visual text editor. It’s flexible, integrates well with different systems and is extremely stable."
"In that move towards web-based editing, one of the most critical components was our editor, but to reinvent the wheel and build one seemed like a waste of resources. We found that the market had quite a few offerings, but TinyMCE was the best in terms of flexibility, integration, and support for the capabilities that we were looking at."

+ Estimate of the cost of building the basic open source components of three leading rich text editors (excluding advanced features and plugins, maintenance and extensibility work)
A person-month is equivalent to approximately 160 hours of labor, and is the amount of work performed by a single average worker in one month (ie. 12 person-month project will take 4 developers 3 months work to finish). A person-year is the total effort in person-months divided by twelve, to estimate the project length in years.
