CKEditor for Plone

Latest Version: 4.7.2


This addon is a ckeditor_ integration for Plone.

How to install

You can install it as any Plone addon. Please follow official documentation_.

Please use CKeditor_ for Plone > 4.

The code source can be found at

Please report issues at


* Plone >= 4
* collective.plonefinder_


After checking out sources, run the included buildout.

This installs ``copy_ckeditor_code`` script. This script takes care of copying
ckeditor code in the appropriate ``browser/ckeditor`` directory.

The ``browser/ckeditor`` directory makes ckeditor javascript code available to
the browser at::


You need to run ``bin/copy_ckeditor_code`` prior to run any Zope/Plone instance
with your development ``collective.ckeditor``.
Anyway, if you forget, your instance will break with a ``ConfigurationError``::

Directory .../browser/ckeditor does not exist.

How to Release

Obviously, the ckeditor code also needs to be included in the released eggs.

``collective.ckeditor`` registers an entry point for ``zest.releaser`` that (if
called properly) takes care of copying the code when preparing the release.

However, in order to take advantage of the entry point, you have to use the
``bin/fullrelease`` locally installed by the development buildout instead of
a globally installed ``fullrelease``.

Only the local ``bin/fullrelease`` script can see the entry_point registered by
