The Blade UI Kit is great and I use parts of it on this site but I couldn't get the EasyMDE editor working in production.
Luckily the Twitter community is awesome and a quick call out for help resulted in @eFawzsan getting in touch and volunteering to help me with it.
A quick look at some of my code and he could immediately see the issue. The app.blade.php file that I use for the layout of my admin area has the following:
<html> <head> // my head settings @bukStyles </head> <body> // my dashboard @bukScripts </body> </html>
This all works fine locally, but if you want the editor to work in production then you need to add an extra bit:
<html> <head> // my head settings @bukStyles(true) </head> <body> // my dashboard @bukScripts(true) </body> </html>
It does actually mention adding this in the docs but because everything else worked OK I didn't revisit that section and so missed it!
Now that it's fixed I can write these posts with a lot more ease!
