Aloha Editor is built to facilitate editing of content within the same layout that is shown to readers. In this respect, it is different from most other web-based wysiwyg editors. Aloha features a floating contextual toolbar that hovers over content that the user is actively editing. Aloha Editor tries to implement its functionality respecting the HTML5 Specification Draft.[5]


Aloha Editor includes a plugin API[6] for extensions.
