I think it's better to create an attainable goal rather than set up a moonshot. Having a basic, usable RTE soon would benefit the users more than having a very complicated RTE at some indeterminate point in the future.

Plus, reaching small manageable goals feels rewarding and motivates people to go forward to bigger things. Big, seemingly unattainable goals can demotivate and lead to burnout.
I agree.

We already have that in the SCE extension. There's no need to have it in the core for something as limited as that.

For a second I forgot that it was pointless to post in this thread. Thanks for reminding me.

I don't get what you mean by that. What's pointless about this topic?

I am reading those lines (and having this topic in its whole read, believe it or not) as that's pointless to POST in this topic, not that there is something pointless in this TOPIC.

See also: It seems that you got burried into a location/idea you are not able do get out from there. So to speak.

But I could be completely wrong and it's not the first time.

What makes the extension so limited?

An extension can easily have access to the BBCode definitions in the database and it can easily change all phpBB pages.
Unfortunately, the definition format used in the database is complicated to process without well-thought code. As most extension coders are not particularly good with programming itself. Heck! Some are not even programmers and try to help! It's really hard to use that data.

On the other side, there's the job of placing a pre-configured editor (just dropping in some .js and .css files). That almost anyone can do and any extension can easily do. There's no reason to put that in the core as it has no noticeable performance impact, requires no configuration and anyone can do their own flavor.

As for the PR related to this topic; IIRC the only thing that is currently blocking is the quote tag due to it's dynamic personalized nature.

An issue with the extension is that that the quote tags don't show the arrow back to the post in 3.2. I am definitely not a programmer and I don't think I am capable of doing an advanced integration, so I will leave it to someone who can. I like SCE, but the icons should be replaced with SVGs if it is integrated in 3.3.

I think that a basic integration is better than no integration at all. I think that CKEditor is better than SCEditor.

Just for information, there is a new popular WYSIWYG text editor, pell. No dependencies and only 1kB.
