Write With Clarity and Focus Ernest

What is Ernest?

Ernest is a Hemingway-like rich text editor package for the Umbraco backoffice by Offroadcode. It helps editors ensure there's focus and clarity in their writing. Words and passages that could use some attention are highlighted with explanations why.

  • Highlights text that might inhibit the clarity or readability of content.
  • Provides suggestions as to why a highlighted piece could benefit from changes.

After you've installed the package, create a new DataType and select "Zoom Area Cropper" from the property editor dropdown. You'll need to set a width and height for the crops to output as before saving the DataType. Next, add the DataType to the DocType(s) of your choice.
