Description

A block-based content editor, with support for static html generation, in phoenix live view.

Disclaimer

This library is still heavily in development.

Things will break and at least initially, they will not maintain backwards compatibility. In fact, the final, release-worthy version may never see the light of day.

Use it at your own risk!

Currently supports the following blocks:

  • a generic content-editable wrapped which can output any of: <p>, <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <ul>, <pre>, <blockquote>
  • a very badly styled table
  • a code block with synthax highlighting for elixir only

Installation and Usage

Add it to your dependencies in mix.exs:

deps: [
  # ...
  {:philtre, "~> 0.10"}
  # ...
]

Include the styles somewhere in your application, for example, from app.js:

import 'philtre/dist/index.css';

Or from app.css:

@import 'philtre/dist/index.css';

Import and add the necessary hooks to your live view application

import * as philtreHooks from 'philtre/src/hooks';

const liveSocket = new LiveSocket('/live', Socket, {
  hooks: { ...philtreHooks, ...yourHooks },
});

Render the page component inside one of your live views

def mount(%{}, _session, socket) do
  {:ok, assign(socket, %{editor: Philtre.Editor.new()})}
end

def render(assigns) do
  ~H"""
  <button phx-click="save">Save</button>
  <.live_component
    module={Philtre.UI.Page}
    id={@editor.id}
    editor={@editor}
  />
  """
end

def handle_event("save", %{}, socket) do
  json = Philtre.Editor.serialize(socket.assigns.json)
  # Save the json however you please
  # Load into editor using Philtre.Editor.normalize/1
  inspect(json)
  {:noreply, socket}
end

def handle_info({:update, %Philtre.Editor{} = editor}, socket) do
  {:noreply, assign(socket, :editor, editor)}
end

developing-using-playground

Developing using Playground

Playground is a locally setup, minimal phoenix application which loads the editor files using local paths, so they are always kept up to date and are even being watched by esbuild.

THis means it allows for live-reload development of hte library.

To start it, run mix playground

Note that editor pages are saved as files under playground\priv\documents so you should probably periodically clean them.
