Text Angular with Angular Material 1.x

Update 12/2017: Too bad there seems not to be a version of this for the new Angular. I liked this one, but had to use CKEditor in my projects. Would be so much easier if Google just did a minimalistic rich editor for Material.

I was doing some front-end coding recently using AngularJS, hence I thought I'd share my struggles a bit. One of those was about finding a good WYSIWYG editor for rich user input that would be playing nicely with Angular Material library. I did some research to evaluate what's available, and as usual in front-end world, everything had it's quirks. I finally stayed with textAngular for couple of reasons, but as it was written with Bootstrap in mind it needed some alterations. The documentation however was not really helpful here, so I'm sharing what I did.
