NEW PLUGIN: Converting BBCode to HTML

BBCode is how some platforms like Bubble parse and display rich text. It’s a markup language and uses tags to indicate styles on text - very similar to HTML but not the same thing.

I’ve been needing to use rich text on Bubble to send emails via Gmail and other APIs, but the BBCode tags appear in the emails. That’s when I realised that I should be converting my rich text to HTML from BBCode while calling these APIs.

That’s why I decided to build this plugin. There was no available tool apart from some paid plugins on Bubble to get rich text in the form of HTML and BBCode.

Run Mode Demo: Linked here

The Plugin is quite simple to use:

  • You simply install it, look for the BBCode->HTML element on the Editor, add it to your page.
  • Set the properties. You can provide your BBCode as input to this element (I provide my RichTextEditorA's value here).
  • Then you can access this element’s output to get the HTML as dynamic data. (BBCode->HTMLA's HTML).
    I supply this dynamic data as the body parameter of my email API call

The result:

BBCode: [b]Hello there![/b]
Converted to HTML: <strong>Hello there!</strong>
Converted HTML as dynamic data to a Bubble HTML element renders as:
Hello there!

The plugin currently supports Bold, Italics, Underline, Strikethrough and Hyperlinks - the basics needed for simple emails.

Hope this helps with your Apps!


Could you post the link to the plugin page?
