Add TinyMCE to a Symfony project

Par Pierre-Yves Landuré - Dernière modification 13/03/2010 17:03

TinyMCE is a inline Wysiwyg HTML editor that is very well integrated with Symfony. Still, you need to download third party sources if you want to use it. This article help you through this process.

Note : This article need you to install the unzip tool. For Debian and Ubuntu, you can install it with apt-get :

/usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/apt-get install unzip

Installing TinyMCE

First, configure the emplacement of the root of you Symfony project :


Choose also the application you want to use TinyMCE with :


Configure the TinyMCE version you want to use :


We remove the dots from the TinyMCE version :


We download TinyMCE sources :

/usr/bin/wget http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/tinymce/tinymce_$TINYMCE_CLEANED_VERSION.zip \

We unzip the downloaded file :

/usr/bin/unzip -o /tmp/tinymce_$TINYMCE_VERSION.zip -d /tmp

If you want, you can also download translations for TinyMCE :

/usr/bin/wget http://services.moxiecode.com/i18n/download.aspx?format=zip\&product=tinymce \

Unzip the downloaded file in the target directory :

/usr/bin/unzip -o /tmp/tinymce_language_pack.zip -d /tmp/jscripts/tiny_mce

And move the TinyMCE source folder to the target emplacement in your Symfony project :

/bin/cp -r /tmp/jscripts/tiny_mce/ "$PROJECT_HOME/web/js/"

Now, configure your Symfony project to use TinyMCE :

/bin/sed -i -e '/^  .settings:/a\
rich_text_js_dir: js/tiny_mce' "$PROJECT_HOME/apps/$PROJECT_APP/config/settings.yml"

Warning: Check your settings.yml file to make sure that everything want well :

/usr/bin/vim "$PROJECT_HOME/apps/$PROJECT_APP/config/settings.yml"

You can now remove the downloaded files :

/bin/rm -r /tmp/tinymce
/bin/rm /tmp/tinymce_language_pack.zip
/bin/rm /tmp/tinymce_$TINYMCE_VERSION.zip

You can now use TinyMCE with PHP codes like :

<?php echo textarea_tag('name', 'default content', 'rich=true size=10x20') ?>
<?php echo textarea_tag('name', 'default content', array(
'rich' => true,
'size' => '10x20',
'tinymce_options' => 'language:"fr",theme_advanced_buttons2:"separator"',
)) ?>

TinyMCE in ajax form

Posté par Pierre-Yves Landuré le 25/11/2008 10:21
You are probably using TinyMCE in a ajax saved form. I've a page in french that has the solution to this problem:


You can try to translate it using google,or search the web for tinymce, symfony and ajax.

Thank you very much.

Thank you for your help.

It might be simpler

Posté par André Lademann le 04/03/2009 22:42
It might be simpler to use the debian package "tinymce" mit "apt-get install tinymce".
Mybe its not the newest, but it still works!
