TinyMCE is an opensource javascript text editor from Moxiecode released under the LGPL licence. It is being used by some as a replacement for the HTML editor used previously in versions 1.8 and 1.9 of Moodle.

It will be the default editor in Moodle 2.0.


Some plugins are Moodle-specific and need to be maintained separately.
