What Aloha Editor does for you

"It has to be easier". This is one of the most frequent things content managers want from their content management systems. With Aloha Editor we have taken this to heart and developed the simplest and most efficient input tool for our content management system.

The extraordinary thing about it: with the Aloha Editor you edit content directly in your website, without having to change to a complicated input tool. The work is as easy as with a text editing tool such as Microsoft Word.

Aloha Editor is an HTML5- and JavaScript-based "What you see is what you get" editor which is supplied with our products, but can also be very easily integrated into other input tools or web applications. With just few lines of programming code, your own web application or web CMS is significantly improved and content managers can look forward to a greater user friendliness.

Classic lead times in which content managers have to be trained in the new tool disappear with Aloha Editor and in just a few minutes you are ready and can begin preparing your content.

For developers the modern architecture permits the addition of separate functions using plug-ins.
