After playing around with the new responsive layout, I got affected by some creative frenzy and decided I would do some document editor that emulates Google Docs, but with boxed paragraph element like on the WordPress or Wix Blog Post Editor (it lets you add new sections, like paragraphs).
Bubblin’ at zap speed, I got a document directory and a basic document editor page off the ground this afternoon.
However, I stopped dead in my tracks when I had to think of how to implement formatting, such as letting the user customize font, spacing and margins.
I’m able to do this from the back end, but there is no way to create a workflow that will create a new style, and conditions won’t let input dynamic style except color.
So this means I can’t let the app user change some settings that will impact the text style of the text, right?
If so then what way do I have to go about in order to achieve that? Does that mean I need to do HTML? Alternatively I could let the user input some markdown which would turn into HTML.
I just totally didn’t plan that. So now I’m trying to think what the best way to design this app would be.
Anyone with some advice?
