Facebook (looks like mostly Isaac Salier-Hellendag) released what looks like a pretty sweet rich text editor written in React.

In the same vein:

  • TinyMCE is the one that’s been around forever.
  • ProseMirror is the fairly new one from Marijn Haverbeke
  • ZenPen is a super minimal one from Tim Holman
  • There’s been a bunch of attempts to replicate the Medium editor, like this.

If you don’t care about visual as-you-type formatting very much (i.e. you just want a simple Markdown editor) there are plenty of other simpler options you can search around for. And if you don’t need little helper buttons either, there is always <textarea>.
