Froala 3.1 WYSIWYG Editor Adds Microsoft Word, Google Docs Integrations

January 21, 2020 GMT

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 21, 2020--

Froala, (a division of Idera, Inc.), a provider of software components for rich text and web applications, today announced the release of Froala Editor 3.1 with new and enhanced support for Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and Internet Explorer 11.

Built with JavaScript, Froala Editor is a lightweight, high-performance WYSIWYG HTML editor focused on user experience. It features cross-platform, cross-browser support optimized for mobile devices, including Android and iOS tablets and smartphones.

The tool comes with more than 30 out of the box plugins, works with almost all front-end frameworks, and offers server side SDKs for multiple languages. It can be fully customized to meet the needs of any user — from the UI look-and-feel to the Toolbar functionality.

Froala Editor 3.1 features improved copy/paste functionality from other documents and editors, and numerous enhancements and quality improvements across browsers. It allows users to copy and paste formatted text and images from Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and other editors, and provides stabilized support for Internet Explorer.

New updates include:

Froala Editor is built in vanilla JavaScript, which eliminates jQuery dependencies and speeds initialization time and performance. With a new gzipped core of less than 50 KB, Froala’s lightweight Editor is 20% faster than previous versions with an initialization time of under 40 milliseconds—making it the most powerful WYSIWYG editor on the market.

“Froala customers continue to impress us with the ways they implement our Editor. From embedding it in their SaaS apps to building email templates, the possibilities are endless, and we strive to make the Editor as extensible as possible,” said Kegan Blumenthal, general manager of Froala. “With this release and planned future releases, we provide features that significantly improve developer usability and productivity. Between Froala and Sencha Ext JS, Idera will continue to invest in our JavaScript portfolio and enhance the ecosystem overall.”
