Hi RobloxCommunity, I have a surprise for you today:
I finally finished my first plugin, I’m proud to present to you:
FrostDracony’s RichTextEditor (you can also call it RichTextEditor, for the rest of the mail I’ll call it that just for short).
Well, to be direct, I have to admit that I’m not the best GUI designer, but that’s why I did my best. So, I don’t know if I will continue making plugins, it depends on how much the community likes this one. I’m not really an expert either, this is my very first plugin that I share with you. You are free to warn me if I do something wrong.
(tl;dr: The design might be ugly and this is my first plugin)
Okay, what can this plugin do? This plugin can, as the name says, change texts of TextGuis, and it is compatible with the RichText beta feature (what more did you want?) There’s nothing special to say, I added a button for almost every richtext tag, but long words are probably boring, what you want to see is the plugin itself, right?
(tl;dr: Just talked a bit about the plugin and will show a video of the plugin itself)
(P.S.: I don’t handle Youtube and video recordings very well, so no negative reviews of the video please, thanks. About the plugin but I accept almost every criticism)
So how did I create it and where did I get the idea for it?
Well, I can only say that I would have to do a lot of research on GUIs and it was a hard work to work with the ScrollingFrame, I would have to use the PluginDebug. But finally I finished my plugin, although it took me about 1 week (which is long for me).
Does it also support LightTheme?
No, it does not.
Well, actually, I personally think that dark theme is better for the eyes than light theme, and anyone who understands me should be able to confirm that. But if anyone can live without light theme, just say and I should be able to make my plugin compatible with light theme. Just ask, but first I would pray you to try dark theme at least once.
Where did I get the idea to do it?
After reading that Roblox would support RichText and seeing some community creations, I couldn’t resist and just had to do it. I got the idea from the Devforum and other forums themselves, there is no more to say.
Where does the name “FrostDracony” come from? Who is that?
Easy to explain, later I want to change my name (I chose this name after an italian youtube channel, which still exists today, but also changed names. Back then I was a fan of it for 5-7 years and had no inspiration, but now I’m thinking that I’d rather change name).
Will the Plugin be open-source?
Yes, this is a big yes. I only need to re-name my variables, then maybe add support for Luau and then yes, i will publish the SourceCode on my Github.
Do you have any questions about the plugin? Put them here or send me a private message, I will answer most of them.
I hope you will like this plugin, if not, tell me what’s wrong with it.
Really thanks for reading, it makes me happy.
(P.S.: This was written thanks to an online translator, because I can’t write English. If you find a mistake, feel free to tell me)
