Overview

A WYSIWYG rich-text editor for GitHub issues, comments and pull requests. Powered by CKEditor.

# About GitHub Writer is a WYSIWYG rich-text editor for GitHub. The extension is available when creating or commenting on issues, reviews, pull requests, and wikis.

For features like tables, it offers a much easier experience in comparison to plain-text Markdown and allows users to be more productive. No more switching to the Preview tab to see what you write! It is powered by CKEditor 5, a modern JavaScript rich-text editor. GitHub Writer is an Open Source project and your questions, feedback and contributions are always welcome.

Great extension! A WYSIWYG editor like this is needed for ALL web sites with comment input fields, if there is a way to detect if a website supports markdown input. Or perhaps the user could manage the allow list, like great suspender does.

Great plugin, just what I have been looking for. Are you able to make this plugin work on ZenHub too?
