Today I added the visual editor to the Wiki. It is not activated by default and you have to switch to it manually.

I tried it a bit and it looks pretty darn good, it is very easy for example to add categories/sub-categories and images to the page and it's basically a 1:1 reproduction of what the final result will be (so no need to preview).

It took me quite a bit to install, it relies on an additional nodejs service that runs in background and that raises some security/performance concerns.

I'll keep it under my radar for a few weeks, if all goes well I'll make it the default editor. Please report any issue and let me know your impressions!

Good. That should make the Wiki a bit more accessible for people to edit.
As long as the old one remains an option. I use "Show changes" (diff) which the visual editor does not (seem to) have.

You are still able to diff on the wiki but you have to be in the visual editor first and then switch to the old one.

Good to hear we get some new tools. Hopefully people will start to contribute.
