ExecCommand obsolete can't find an alternative(confused)

Hi everyone,

So execCommand is obsolete right now, MDN doesn't offer an alternative.

MDN link: execCommand

Can someone point me at what the alternative is?

Thanks

Any specific use case that you need exec command for?

Hi @kamilbiedrzycki, I need that command because I wanted to make my own js editor for a svelte app.
Because I need some custom editing option for SEO for an experiment I am planing.

I guess you can try how trix-editor.org/ is implemented, seems like they try to avoid execCommand.
