    I think an extension to have this as a mobile editor without the story builder for form builder like BuddyForms and you would have an amazing playground for your community to post their own blog posts with ease ☺

    This looks really nice. Will need to try it out. Saw that it didnt support åäö and the like in the issues so cant use it on some of my sites then. Though its on GH maybe can patch it.

    What I meant is that this is a good time for other developers to start writing extensions for the upcoming marketplace as I read that you’re planning one?

      Absolutely! Lasso is incredibly extensible and able to support custom components. We have some big plans for Lasso, and hope that other developers will build additional components. I’d love to see component packs for niche specific things like business, restaurants, etc. This means that Lasso would then be used for more than just telling stories.

    I just tried it out from the Github repository. Very slick! It’d be awesome if it would work on bbPress topics and replies, replacing the stripped down TinyMCE editor entirely.

    I would also like to see it as a replacement.

    I’d steer clear of anything produced by this guy. As anyone who bought any of his products for PageLines DMS will tell you, customer support is zero and then he responds by telling you he’s not supporting his work anymore because it’s too costly and he got a real job.

    The guys a con artist.

    Stuart he just released it to the OS Community. It’s a front end editor with a shortcode compiler…I don’t see how your comment is relevant here.

    “a person who cheats or tricks others by persuading them to believe something that is not true.”

    Because I don’t support a plugin that I wrote for a framework that I worked on over two years ago?

    I agree with Stuart 100%. Jake, based on past exp’s it’s important to those of us who blew $400 on the biggest ripoff framework I’ve ever seen in the WP galaxy and the only plugins able to be integrated for a long time were Haskins, who I thought was also directly involved w/the framework or at least appeared to me at the time. Regardless, the framework and plugins sucked and support for them was worse, even condensnding and rude at times. I never mind paying for a good tool but that experience still has me disgruntled (obviously). TG I found Genesis and it’s awesome community shortly after.

    While I agree with Jakes Hawkes – inasmuch as this is a post about the release of Nick’s plugin to the OS community, the flames have no releveance here – nevertheless, let me say for the record, that I have been a long time customer of Nick Haskins. I have more than likely bought every plugin he’s ever created and many of his themes. He is a solid coder and developer and his support and attention to his customers has always been superb. I hold both him and his work in great esteem. With that being said, I just tested Lasso and I absolutely LOVED it – so I purchased it as I will be using it and aesop story engine for a very big long form story project on a live production site.
