WYSIWYG editor for posts

I prefer using raw Markdown, but when I try to convince other people to join Aether, one of the biggest issues is that they don’t know Markdown, so they think Aether is minimalistic and missing features. For example, they don’t realize they can post images.

So I think a WYSIWYG editor is necessary in order to have mass appeal (while still having the option of using Markdown for advanced users). I recommend something like https://stackedit.io/ or https://github.com/StackExchange/pagedown

Thanks. Yeah, this is a fairly simple change, largely just in the client code. We should do this, preferably without disturbing the experience of users who got used to markdown. Discourse’s WSIWYG editor looks pretty good…
