Just noting that we at WMF have been talking to Wikia about taking a
look at their code to see if it can be made useful for WMF properties.
Expect to hear more about Rich Text Editing soonish.

How installable and workable is this on, say, any
random work intranet
with a fairly generic MW 1.16 installation? I may give it a go at work
As far as I know, the problem right now is that Wikia's rich text
editor requires core changes, rather than simply being an extension
you can install. The code is all available at
but it still needs to be packaged up to
make it easier for third-party use.
... and the problem with the wikitext being
mangled is that diffs show
a 100% text change for any alteration
Luckily this is now a rare bug, and not the norm. Work is ongoing to
resolve the remaining causes of this. The aim is for diffs to work in
exactly the same way as they do with wikitext-only.
