Thanks for the comment. We started creating the app with draft.js and it's pretty amazing. Yes, the documentation isn't very good. I cloned the medium-draft repo and learned how he has used draft JS and then started coding. That's easier than going through the documentation ;) Never knew about slate.js. Will check that out.

Glad to know that! All the best with draft. If you haven't already, I would also recommend you to check out Draft.js Plugins. Excellent package covering lots of interesting use cases like mention/suggestion box, etc., created by Nik Graf.

So, I have re-implemented our WYSIWYG component to replace the obsolete document.execCommand

I just published a blog post to introduce the solution.

Any feedback or contributions are more than welcomed!
