I really would like a nice frontside wysiwyg-editor for the P2 theme. Preferable a light one with only the most basic controls. Tried front-end-editor but not to fond of it´s looks and UX. Plain and simple are key.

WYSIhtml is one that has been getting a lot of love from people these days. See: http://xing.github.com/wysihtml5/

But, 'nice' is very subjective.

Thanks for your answer. Forgot about this question but just found a brilliant plugin (below). – BoBoz Jul 2 '14 at 21:34

I think that the built-in wp_editor can do this job pretty nice.

Sure tinymce is cinda heavy but its already loaded and cached in the browser. So why dont use WordPress native functions instead of using another lib? Look how simple it is to register an editor:

wp_editor('', 'wpse', array(
   'teeny'      => true,
   'media_buttons' => false

I think its pretty sweet: enter image description here

Yeah it's sweet looking, but is it really loaded and cached front-side? – BoBoz Dec 28 '12 at 23:27

This question is quite old but the plugin which answers this question is quite new (in fact not finished yet).

Hope it's not considered bad answering your own questions this late. – BoBoz Jul 2 '14 at 21:33
