CKEditor in Drupal 8 - The New Possibilities


Drupal 8 will finally be shipped with a default WYSIWYG editor: CKEditor. Content creation and editing is one of the most frequent tasks in CMS applications, that’s why it’s important to fully grasp the tools used while editing. A good understanding of the editor will help you control what’s being posted and increase the efficiency of your site’s content creators.

This session will not only guide you through CKEditor-related features in Drupal 8, but will also help you extend CKEditor functionality by providing your own features.


  • Why existing WYSIWYG solutions for Drupal 6/7 are bad.
  • New features offered in CKEditor & Text Editor modules.
  • What is ACF? How content filtering works in CKEditor.
  • Widgets: why use them and how they handle images.
  • Writing and adding plugins to CKEditor, extending the list of configuration options.
  • Security: HTML Filter vs. ACF.
  • Migration.
