A trick with dojo.editor in jMaki

When I tried to use jMaki’s dojo.editor, I first thought “Hay this is dojo, so I can just use it the way dojo related documentation stated it, right?” No. jMaki created a wrapper for dojo and the configuration argument doesn’t match 100%. So, After reading across several documentations, here is one trick for configure dojo.editor with medium pre-set tool bar. The default is small. Beyond that, there isn’t too much more you can configure. So, dojo.editor in jMaki isn’t as configurable as dojo.editor by itself. This simplification is fine if the presets are good enough for your needs.

<a:widget name="dojo.editor" value="edit me." args="{toolbar:\"medium\"}" />
