Dante 3 - This is it! 🔥

Just another medium clone built on top of ProseMirror's / TipTap

Dante3 is a port from Dante2 (Draftjs) . This version is built on top of TipTap and reaches all Dante2's features with a shiny ultra mega super uber maintainable architecture.

See the demo at: dante-editor.dev

Why rewrite a new version of Dante?

The previous version (Dante2) was made on DraftJs, that's a facebook library to build WYSIWYG editor, I'd choose that technology because it implemented a very interesting data model and abstracted many parts of the heuristics implementation that Dante1 (the previous version) built as a naive implementation relying a lot on DOM manipulation, So Dante2 was great and is working on a ton of production websites. Sadly over the last years this library has not received much attention from maintainers. Among the ~700 unattended reported issues there are some that have become a deal breaker for me:

  • Bad mobile support.

  • ~1MB added to your bundle (immutablejs is heavy)

  • Not created for realtime collab.

My bet, TipTap

After shopping many editors libraries, I mean after tried to implement Dante on almost all of them (Trix, Editorjs, Quilljs, Slate, Prosemirror) I've TipTap library (which is based on Prosemirror)., I guess all editors libraries have their own flaws but after review it all TipTap is the best of it's class, very well designed/architectured, and I love the community around their ecosystem. So that's it.
