Hi there, I don't like TinyMCE and we're using CKEditor at the customized SS2, but I don't have module implementation.
Since SilverStripe CMS was moved to jQuery UI we decided to work on elRTE integration. I think it will be the best editor for SS.
I have attached draft elRTE module for the SS3.

Ah, also u need to comment out a line at framework/admin/code/LeftAndMain.php:
FRAMEWORK_DIR . '/javascript/HtmlEditorField.js',

elRTE is an open-source WYSIWYG HTML-editor written in JavaScript using jQuery UI. It features rich text editing, options for changing its appearance, style and many more. You can use it in any commercial or non-commercial projects.

Here's some additional information about elRTE:

P.S. For some reason my old account is inaccessible so I've got to use one a new one, sorry

Hi it's for SS3 I have also fixed few issues and here's the latest version.
Sorry, I have taken it from my project so script paths should be fixed.
Plz, share if u'll make any improvements.

In this version u don't need to do any core modifications just replace HtmlEditorField in DataObjects or Pages with this code

public function getCMSFields() {
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
			new ElEditorField('Content',_t('SiteTree.Content','Content'))
		return $fields;
