This library provides Angular support for EditorJS.

npm version

Inside the module you will find:

  • NgxEditorJSDirective - An Angular Directive used to attach an EditorJS instance to any block DOM element
  • NgxEditorJSComponent - An out-of-the-box Angular component that is Reactive Forms compatible.
  • NgxEditorJSMaterialFieldComponent An Angular Material Form Field component that provides all the required properties and life-cycle events required. See the Form Demo on an example usage
  • NgxEditorJSBaseComponent - A base Angular component that is Reactive form compatible but with no template, can be used to create custom UI framework containers
  • NgxEditorJSService - A Service that can be injected into an application to provide a interface to interact with EditorJS instances and manage plugins.

Within these components you will be able to access the underlying EditorJS instance, for use see the EditorJS API Docs

You can see a demo in action or download it on GitHub to see how it was implemented.

For changes see the CHANGELOG

Installing and usage

Install the library via npm along with the plugins module and EditorJS module. For each plugin you want to use you also need to install it's dependency - see the Plugin Docs for more information.

> npm install @tinynodes/ngx-editorjs @tinynodes/ngx-editorjs-plugins @editorjs/editorjs @editorjs/paragraph....

Once installed, include the NgxEditorJSModule module in your project with the forRoot method. The forRoot takes an optional configuration.

If you don't want to use Angular material you can import NgxEditorJSComponentModule instead.

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgxEditorJSModule } from '@tinynodes/ngx-editorjs';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [
      // Optional Configuration, see all keys below
      editorjs: {
        autofocus: false,
        holder: 'editor',
        initialBlock: 'paragraph',
        data: {
          time: Date.now(),
          version: EditorJS.version,
          blocks: []
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule {}
