A server side widget for the toolbar of a RichTextArea

This Add-on is intended as a drop-in replacement for the RichTextArea by Vaadin. Most of it is just a copy of the original.

Added functionality so far:

  • server side widget for the toolbar, which allows to place it decoupled from the text area. It is possible to attach multiple text areas to one toolbar.
  • set the height to grow and shrink with the text
  • i18n through sass variable
  • more styling of toolbar through css
  • styling content of area with css

See README for styling and I18n description
