Issue #2877050 by vishal9619, anon: Add readme file according to Drupal standards

parent ae3e5c28
Linkit provides an easy interface for internal and external linking with editors and fields by using an autocomplete
field. Linkit links to nodes, users, managed files, terms and have basic support for all entities by default.
Linkit has three major advantages over traditional linking
1. The user does not have to copy or remember a URL.
2. It is a sustainable solution for internal linking.
3. It has a user friendly UI.
* Basic support for all entities.
* Token support (for better descriptions on search results in Linkit).
* Provides a link button, similar to the ordinary link button in most editors.
* Can be attached to fields.
* The button opens a dialog with an autocomplete field for searching content.
* Support for IMCE.
* Settings are handled by profiles, similar to the profiles of the WYSIWYG module. Thus, it is possible to customize
the behavior of Linkit in detail.
* Works with and without Pathologic.
* Internal absolute URL:s converts automatically into Drupal paths, very simple for users who are used to copy-pasting.
* Tested to work in multiple server environments, e.g. with and without clean URL:s, Drupal installation in a
subdirectory or on a different port.
* Uses BAC
* Fully exportable with Features module.
Since Drupal's own autocomplete was not enough, we developed our own Better Autocomplete which provides a rich
autocomplete experience. It is GPL and bundled with Linkit 7.x-2.x and 7.x-3.x.
* Normal module installation procedure,see
for further information.
* Enable the Linkit button in your editor or on your field.
After the installation, you have to create a Linkit profile. The profile will contain information about which
attributes and plugins to use.
* ctools
* Entity API
* WYSIWYG with TinyMCE or CKEditor.
* CKEditor.
