WYSIWYG BBCode editor (free)

Aug 18 2009 :: by Alex
If you follow us at the Jitbit's Twitter account, you might already know that a couple of days ago I was searching for a WYSIWYG BBCode editor. I never found any. So we decided to build our own. Free and open-sourced.

Now I'm happy to announce that the first version has arrived. We are releasing a browser-based WYSIWYG BBCode editor to the public. It's called "Jitbit WYSIWYG-BBCode" (no surprise here), it is totally free and licensed under BSD. Feel free to use it in your projects - both free and commercial.

It works like any web-based WYSIWYG editor, but it inputs and outputs BBCode instead of HTML.

A modification of this editor is used in Jitbit products - the forum software and the web help desk software.

Our open-source WYSIWYG BBCode Editor is now hosted at CodePlex: WYSIWYG BBCode editor.
