Best WYSIWYG Editors Software

WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editors are used to create text and media content that appears to the creator as it will upon publication or print. This means those creating text or other pages/presentations can view and edit their content in a mode that excludes the HTML. While the code still exists, it is not the default viewing setting of a WYSIWYG editor, but rather it exists in a separate tab or setting. WYSIWYG editors are useful tools for those wishing to create internet content but who have no programming or code writing knowledge, or for those who do have coding knowledge but wish to view projects in their final format. They are often utilized within the context of website building, app development, and content management, allowing users to visualize content before completion or publication.

To qualify for inclusion in the WYSIWYG category, a product must:

  • Provide a box for users to edit content in plain text
  • Have classic word processing features
  • Apply code to text and allow users to edit code
  • Export, print, or publish content or integrate with a tool that does
