About a month ago I was testing a pull request (#1999) for Drupal Console that will generate boilerplate code to integrate a button plugin from CKEditor to Drupal 8. So apparently the integration to integrate a CKEditor plugin for Drupal 8 is very simple thanks to the great CKEditor API in Drupal 8. While testing this pull request (#1999) I ended up with 4 plugins in my computer and I decide to share the code in Drupal.org so people can use it.

Project Page: CKEditor Smiley

Plugin Description: This plugin provides a set of emoticons for inserting into the editor via a dialog window.

Project Page: CKEditor Loremipsum

Plugin Description: This plugin allows to generate lorem ipsum sentence or paragraph easily, to use in your web content, for example, it can be very useful when you want to demonstrate a website or a portal.

Project Page: CKEditor Video Detector

Plugin Description: This plugin allows you to insert videos from Youtube, Vimeo or Dailymotion only pasting a URL or embed code.

Project Page: CKEditor Font Size and Family

Plugin Description: This plugin adds Font Size and Font Family dropdowns that apply as inline element style.

If you wish to generate your own/ or a CKEditor plugin for Drupal 8 check out the Drupal Console command generate:plugin:ckeditor. Also, If you see @dinarcon buy him a beer for this pull request.
