    ck editor for uberSVN

    Will ck editor work with uberSVN?

    Just downloaded uberSVN.

    Can you install ck editor like plugin in the tabs?

    I need revision tracking but also need a wsywg editor for non technical people to use like word.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    thanks,

    alex

    I don't know what ck editor is, but if it's a web application, you can certainly add a tab that points the URL where the application is hosted.

    You can use whatever editor you like. Subversion doesn't have any deep knowledge about the data that you choose to keep in the repository.

    I think he's looking to use ck editor on a web page as a front-end to some sort of CMS which then stores its content in Subversion.

    Or possibly allow direct editing of content in a repository via the web server, using this editor instead of a plain textarea.

    If ck editor has Subversion integration, then sure but as I say, I don't know anything about ck editor. If it doesn't have Subversion integration, you presumably still need to manage a working copy in the normal way.

    Which one? I put forth 2 possibilities.

    Either way, the editor doesn't matter, as that won't interact with the repository at all. You need code on the server to take the content submitted via the editor, update the content in a working copy, then commit it to the repository.

    There are other/better ways than using Subversion for this, you really ought to be using a purpose-built CMS (Content Management System).

    this one but I think your right for what they want. However they don't want a cms either has already have a system built and want to integrate some kind of editor and revision history into it. I've got a headache already.

    Choose the right tool for the job, not the tool that you built before you understood what the job was in the first place.

    A CMS is the right tool here. If you're going to proceed without a CMS, then (as I wrote before) the choice of editor is really inconsequential when it comes to the Subversion operations, as that's all handled by server-side operations in a working copy when you submit the data via your form.
