Editor Buttons Simplified

Description

The main purpose of the plugin is to start a discussion on how we could improve the editor in WordPress. This plugin is thus a very opinionated one. The button selection is done with reusable content in mind. All buttons that would results in harmful markup are removed.

The plugin also removes the kitchen sink button. Instead, there is an icon with three dots. Pressing that expands the row to contain all the available buttons. This works better with a responsive page than hard coded lines of buttons which in some widths break into four separate lines.

A detailed description of design decisions can be found on my blog.
