I am just running the demo application of django-ckeditor and all the UI functionality is
out of the box. I did nothing.

About the license, at the end of django-ckeditor Python Package Index says OSI Approved ::
BSD License

The JS CKEditor text editor says either GPL, LGPL or MPL

Also, there is a lot of JS frameworks and libraries that could make us easier the front end
development. And it is good to know how to deal with the Apache policy using third-party

Regarding to the UI, I think is better start discussing about features.
