#10094 closed Bug (wontfix)

Unable to dynamically/lazily load a CKBuilder-generated ckeditor.js

Reported by: Chris Ingham Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 4.0 Beta
Keywords: IBM Cc: chris.ingham@…, irinauru@…


I would like to load CKEditor dynamically/lazily as part of a single page web application.

Google turns up some information about "bootstrapping" using ckeditor_basic.js (e.g. alfonsoml's 2009 blog entry), but the build/download produced by CKBuilder does not include ckeditor_basic.js.

The inline version CKEditor 4.0.1 looks and demos wonderfully, but my attempts to dynamically load ckeditor.js on demand have resulted in a number of timing-related JavaScript exceptions, and have been a major barrier to integrating CKEditor into my application.

I'm submitting this as a "Bug" hoping that in fact this use case is supported but undocumented. Otherwise this would seem to be an important feature to enable integration into modern web applications.

  1. Currently ckeditor_basic is missing so yes this is a bug.
  2. Blogpost @inghamc is talking about is
  3. I was trying to workaround this problem with script tag insertion but event after commenting our the editorScriptLoaded method I was getting:

Message: " is undefined"
Line: 351
URI: /ckeditor4/core/editor.js

function createEditor(){
	var myHeader = document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0];         
	var myScript = document.createElement('script');
	myScript.type = 'text/javascript';
	myScript.src = '../ckeditor.js';
function editorScriptLoaded(){
	// We need to turn off the automatic editor creation first.
	//if ( CKEDITOR.loadFullCore ){		
		CKEDITOR.disableAutoInline = true;
		var editor = CKEDITOR.inline( 'editable' );
		editor.on('instanceReady', function(evt){

Related ticket: jQuery Adapter does not work with ckeditor_basic.js #7778. Adapter should be fixed when lazy loading (ckeditor_basic.js) will be recreated.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: confirmedclosed

We’ve been making our consideration about this feature here. Our conclusion is that nowadays it is not any more much advantage to have a custom and non-standard way to lazy load scripts considering the amount of script-loading solutions available. Therefore we recommend using any of the available (or even custom) solutions out there.
