It has been quite a while.
I planned to have v1 ready all the way back in September. Unfortunately, things have been a bit busy here of late, and when collaborating with a friend of mine, my hectic schedule and his health issues meant that I couldn't really get what I wanted done, done.
Part of the reason is that I was trying to shoehorn features into the
Text.js component that just wouldn't work.
I found a snippet of a
writeGood component at lyleg/write-good-web. This would work perfectly if I was using
Draft.js and I really wasn't willing to rewrite the whole
Facebook and Draft.js
I was scrolling my Facebook newsfeed and there was a notice that Facebook Open Source changed their URL. Fine, I thought and opened up the link. I scrolled some of the open source projects they have listed and Draft.js was one of them. Curious, I decided to check it out. The editor example was perfect. I set out to find a markdown version and I found Mulesoft's md-draft-js, a Markdown text editor for React. This is even better.
I am looking at both the docs for
Draft.js, trying to get familiar with the
Draft.js API and concepts.
I plan on looking for something on YouTube to get me started and then diving into the docs some more this weekend.
Unfortunately, because this is more involved than
SimpleMDE, it will be at least another month or two before Check Yo Self is finished. I am still in the process of getting ready to interview and interviewing so I have to think about how much time I want to dedicate to this. I also know that finishing this is really important.
I have my work cut out for me these next couple of months.
