As I go through the HTML5 spec, I find some useful new feature just about everywhere, and the new contenteditable attribute is certainly one of those. It’s supported by most elements and provides a simple and yet effective way for you to allow the users to edit user contents (blog posts for instance) inline as opposed to having to open up a separate form.
It couldn’t be simpler to use it, just set the contenteditable attribute of your element to true:
<article id="editable" contenteditable="true"> <p>This area is an article, its border will light up when you click anywhere inside.</p> … </article>
And now when the user can edit the content of the element themselves:
Here is a quick demo I’ve put together which uses two buttons to save and clear changes to/from the local storage, though you can just easily save the changes automatically when the element loses the focus.
I specialise in rapidly transitioning teams to serverless and building production-ready services on AWS.
