Work on the new WordPress Gutenberg editor plugin has shifted into high gear with block types rolling out daily. In this post, we describe the TinyMCE block type that we are contributing to the community. What is TinyMCE block? The TinyMCE block will allow complex document constructs inside a single Gutenberg-style block. TinyMCE block will…
Earlier this year, we joined forces with Automatic and began working on the future editor of WordPress.org as a part of Project Gutenberg. This is the story of how we rose to the design challenge and what we learned along the way.
How did we make the Tone Analyzer come together for our TinyMCE and Textbox.io editors? This is part 5 in my series on the Ephox Cognitive Assistant, where I go over the magic behind Watson’s psycholinguistic analysis process, and how we built the architecture to make it all happen.
This is the final post in my 6-part series on the Ephox Cognitive Assistant. In this post, we put the Tone Analyzer to the test, and I share what we found, and what participants had to say about this powerful writing feature.
Not much has changed for the content creation process since the dawn of WYSIWYG technology. Yet the question remains: how can cognitive technology help us write better content? This is part 4 in my series discussing the future of editing with the Ephox Cognitive Assistant, where I introduce the Tone Analyzer feature.
This is part 3 in my series discussing the future of editing with the Ephox Cognitive Assistant. Here, I’ll be taking you through how we put the Cognitive Assistant to the test, and what our results showed in discovering the true measure of cognitive toward the future of content creation.
Join Ephox at IBM Amplify and see why Ephox Cognitive stole the show at IBM Connect earlier this month. We’ll also show you how a simple change to the editor in WCM will redefine content creation in your business today.
This is part 2 in my series on the future of editing with the Ephox Cognitive Assistant. In this post, I will take you through the general architecture the Cognitive Assistant, and driving force behind its most powerful features.
At Ephox, we are redefining content in the cognitive era. Join me in this exciting 6-part series exploring the future of writing with IBM Watson. Don’t miss it.
James Altucher’s quote about needing “85 fonts and 172 formatting options to write” is funny for its observation of how bloated and outdated “traditional” content editors have become. Traditional editors overloaded with features are nearing their end.
There are a variety of online user testing platforms that provide quick and inexpensive access to remote observational research. This mode of user-testing is fairly new to me, so I recently ran a small experiment to compare online vs in-house user testing. Let’s see what I learned, and how it might help you in your next UX test.
Testing is a core part of the design process. Google does it. Facebook does it. And here at Ephox, we do it too. With so many methodologies and tools available, getting started with user testing can be a little daunting. I hope that sharing my journey in establishing a solid, evidence-based UX practice at Ephox will provide you with some tips that you can apply to your UX practice.
One of the complexities of writing a web-based text editor is accounting for differences between browser selection APIs. This has been the topic of recent discussions in WordPress #core-editor, in the context of backward compatibility for project gutenberg. Looking at the comparison of what is supported by various browsers, it is clear that support for browsers…
We launched the free-forever Basic plan of TinyMCE Cloud on February 1st and so far we couldn’t be happier with the results. In the two weeks since, 2,000 developers have registered for an API key and our infrastructure has served over 2 million hits. TinyMCE Cloud is key to our strategy. With the cloud, we can add valuable new…

This morning, I caught up on a few days of missed gutenberg conversations on slack and last week’s design meeting. Balancing minimal aesthetic with traditional functionality Things move…
