Rich Editor

The rich editor allows you to write posts with some basic formatting and embedded images.

Embedded Images

When editing, you can add images to your post in the interface. There are two ways embedded images are handled.

If your Micropub server supports a Media Endpoint, then at the time you add the image to the interface, Quill uploads the file to your Media Endpoint and embeds it in the editor as an <img> tag pointing to the file on your server. When you publish the post, the HTML will contain this img tag.

'); ?>

If your Micropub server does not support a Media Endpoint, then when you add an image in the editor, the image is converted to a data URI, and will be sent to your Micropub endpoint when you publish the post. You don't need to do anything special to handle the image, since if you render this HTML directly, your viewers will see the image! Of course this means your HTML file will increase by the size of the image, so you may wish to implement a Media Endpoint in order to handle images in your posts separately.

Post Properties

The following properties will be sent in the Micropub request. This request will be sent as a JSON request.

The access token is sent in the Authorization HTTP header:

Authorization: Bearer XXXXXXXXX

This will be sent as a JSON request, so the request will look something like the following.

POST /micropub HTTP/1.1
Content-type: application/json
Authorization: Bearer XXXXXXXXXXX
