        editable: true,
          spellcheck: true,
          height: 'auto',
          minHeight: '0',

    For ngModel to work, you must import FormsModule from @angular/forms, or for formControlName, you must import ReactiveFormsModule from @angular/forms

    To serve the fontawesome files, ensure that your angular.json contains the following asset configuration:

      "glob": "**/*",
      "input": "./node_modules/@kolkov/angular-editor/assets/",
      "output": "./assets/fonts/"

    Custom buttons

    You can define your custom buttons with custom actions using executeCommandFn. It accepts commands from execCommand. The first argument of this method is aCommandName and the second argument is aValueArgument. Example shows a button that adds Angular editor logo into the editor.

    <angular-editor id="editor1" formControlName="htmlContent1" [config]="editorConfig">
      <ng-template #customButtons let-executeCommandFn="executeCommandFn">
          <ae-button iconClass="fa fa-html5" title="Angular editor logo"
                     (buttonClick)="executeCommandFn('insertHtml', angularEditorLogo)">
