Installable with the Extension Manager


RtWysiwyg is a visual Realtime Collaborative Editor which extends the XWiki WYSIWYG editor.


If a document is currently being edited in Realtime, the normal "This document has been locked for editing" screen will appear but will allow you to join the Realtime Collaborative Session if applicable.


And of course if you are uncomfortable with realtime editing, you can click on the ALLOW REALTIME COLLABORATION checkbox to return to normal editing at any time and your preferences will be preserved.


Reminder for users: even though you are in a realtime session, you will still have to save your document when you are done editing it.

Reminder for admins: the RtWysiwyg editor makes use of WebSocket which requires an open port from the users to the wiki, this port number and the hostname of the wiki can be specified in configuration, for more information see WebSocket.

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki
