Makona, the Block-Style Editor

Because the world desperately needs another Rich Text editor for the web, I give you Makona. Makona is the Hawaiian word for a mason, which is someone that works with blocks. Makona lets you edit text by working with blocks — Markdown blocks, text blocks, image blocks, code blocks, etc.

The blocks can be saved back to the server as a blob of HTML, or in a JSON structure that contains all the data for the blocks, which opens up some neat possibilities for reusing that content in different contexts.

This project was started mainly as a excuse to learn Reactjs, but with some elbow grease I think it can become a useful tool in the open-source universe. Feel free to pitch in!
