Tiny, the folks behind TinyMCE, has announced they acquired Setka, a no-code WYSIWYG editor.
TinyMCE powers the classic editor in WordPress and many other CMSes. ⌨️
I’m not sure I will count this primarily as a “WordPress acquisition.” Setka does have a WordPress page builder plugin, but it has <700 installs and hasn’t been updated in a few months.
However, TinyMCE has a long history with WordPress, and this acquisition is in the same general space. A bigger deal perhaps to Shopify and other CMS platforms that continue to use it. It will be interesting to see how Tiny moves forward, and if the Setka builder plugin for WordPress is supported for the long haul under the new ownership.
