What is markItUp!?
What is markItUp! used for?
Does your website have an HTML <textarea>? If so, you can use markItUp! to transform your bland plain text area into a markup editor. Since it isn’t a WYSIWYG editor, it will be better suited for websites that attract technically-savvy users who understand terms like plain text and syntax, and can read plain text that includes markup.
What is unique about markItUp!?
markItUp! is fully customizable. Add any markup or buttons you want within a styling of your choosing. Trigger features from anywhere on your page, and insert tags and text from other libraries and plugins. Take advantage of the Ajax live preview to see changes you've made in the editor. Finally, skin markItUp! with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to make it match with the look of your application.
How do I use markItUp!?
- Implement jQuery on your website by either downloading jQuery and adding it to your webpage directory, or by adding a link in your HTML pointing to a publicly hosted jQuery library.
- Download markItUp! and the Markup Set you want to use, unzip them, and upload the provided files to your web server.
- Use HTML (IDs, classes, or the textarea tag) to implement markItUp! on the text areas you want to turn into markup areas.
markItUp! pros and cons
Pros: It lets you easily add markup tools to any HTML <textarea>, you can even build your own set of markup tools if you like, and it’s free.
Does the markItUp! download include everything I need to implement markItUp!?
There are a couple of downloads you will need from the markItUp! website. First, you’ll need the main application package. Second, you’ll want to go to the Downloads page on the site and find the Markup Set you want (HTML, BBCode, etc). Once you have both of those downloads you will have everything you need except the jQuery files. In order to implement jQuery on your site you’ll need to go download the latest version of the jQuery library (or find a link to a public jQuery library on the web). Once you have that, you’re all set and ready to implement markItUp!.
