Advanced Rich Text Tools for Gutenberg


This plugin adds the following functionality:

  • Code code, subscript sub, and superscript sup buttons to the formatting toolbar.
  • Inline text and background colour panel (found inside the block sidebar for now).
  • Remove formatting button (found inside the block sidebar for now).



Thanks a lot!

Without this Plugin Gutenberg is worth nothing, since TinyMCE can't be inerted in other blocks without beraking them. This is the little formatting thing the is really needed. Needs a little bit of optimization on the frontend side, so it doesnt load 2.5MB of scripts that are only needed in the backend actually. Only change this line in the index.php and everything is fine: add_action( 'init', function() { to add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', function() {

Thanks for helping Gutenberg be ready for prime time.

For 2-3 years I have written weekly entries. I like new things, but Gutenberg? So many routine things are no longer routine. Maybe it is about getting the product launched and then retooling it. Hopefully. Still so much that was routine is now edgy. Your addon is a big help. Thank you.

Terrific Example

Thank you so much for this... not just for what it does but more so for the example and proof of concept it sets. I found this while looking for documentation to do something similar. Seeing these possibilities makes me feel much better moving ahead with the new editor. Well done!

This should be a part of gutenberg

As title says. Only thing I found missing, is that gutenberg "preview" ignores formatting until "update" button is clicked. Great plugin, makes gutenberg actually usable.

Great Addition!

This plugin is a great addition to the somewhat lacking (in my opinion) text formatting capabilities within the Gutenberg environment. I would like to see it include text size for the inline element as well, but this is definitely a great add-on!
