Over the past few years we have seen a huge reversal in the amount of complexity we hand over to our users through our interfaces.  This is such a good thing.  One item that has always remained for me is finding a decent WYSIWYG editor.  There are quite a few good ones of late.

Medium’s editor interface is the gold standard these days.  Unfortunately, we don’t get to recreate that easily unless we have the huge capital investment they do 🙁

TinyMCE and FCKEditor (CKEditor now?) were the most powerful editors for some time.  But they brought complexity.

My new favorite is EpicEditor.  It’s syntax is in markdown which is really nice for the sweetspot of a newbie user vs a power user.  Check it out:
