Make your own Dev.to CMS livestream - Part 1

As someone who uses Dev.to as a headless CMS, I feel a lot of personal pain points with the very simple default editor we get in Dev.to. I figured I would try a personal project with all new tech that I know some things about but haven't built anything serious with:

  • Preact
  • Next.js
  • TailwindCSS

And done in TypeScript because that's how I roll.

Demo: https://dev-to-cms.now.sh

Here is my first livestream of that! Had a slow start but got a lot done in 90 minutes.

Catch up on the Dev.to CMS LiveStream!

The biggest issue I have is that gammerly does not work in the editor. Forestry.io editor does allow it to work, no clue how.

Wonder if your editor will be recognized my grammerly. It’s a good idea to role your own. Nice work!

 

yes! once i have my own i can add grammarly, hemingway, or whatever else I want. For example i want to @ people in my markdown, and have it autopopulate into a link to the person's twitter or site or whatever.

 

Huh. I haven't had problems with Grammarly in the dev.to editor (at least in Firefox). If you really can't get it to work, open an issue so the team knows you're experiencing a bug.
