36.0.0 • Public • Published

NOTE: This fork has been discontinued, since I opted for a local version of the build. If you would like to create your own personalized local version as well, do the following steps:

  • Fork the ckeditor build within a folder on your project (ie. project/external)
  • In the forked directory, run npm install
  • Adjust the build as you would like, adding, removing and configuring your editor
  • Perform yarn build in the forked directory
  • Add the build to the package.json dependencies (ex: "my-custom-build": "file:./external/ckeditor-build-classic")
  • In your file, import the build (ex: import ClassicEditor from 'my-custom-build')

You now have a local customizable version of the editor. This can also be applied to other packages, as long as you have the source code. Also, if you have the git still initialized to the upstream fork, you can always perform updates to your build whenever they are available (see Updating the build)

Quick start

First, install the build from npm:

npm install --save ckeditor5-build-classic-plus

And use it in your website:

<div id="editor">
	<p>This is the editor content.</p>
<script src="./node_modules/ckeditor5-build-classic-plus/build/ckeditor.js"></script>
		.create( document.querySelector( '#editor' ) )
		.then( editor => {
			window.editor = editor;
		} )
		.catch( err => {
			console.error( err.stack );
		} );

Or in your JavaScript application:

import ClassicEditor from 'ckeditor5-build-classic-plus';

// Or using the CommonJS version:
// const ClassicEditor = require( 'ckeditor5-build-classic-plus' );

	.create( document.querySelector( '#editor' ) )
	.then( editor => {
		window.editor = editor;
	} )
	.catch( err => {
		console.error( err.stack );
	} );

Note: If you are planning to integrate CKEditor 5 deep into your application, it is actually more convenient and recommended to install and import the source modules directly (like it happens in ckeditor.js). Read more in the Advanced setup guide.
