draft-js-markdown-plugin

An opinionated DraftJS plugin for supporting Markdown syntax shortcuts in DraftJS. This plugin works with DraftJS Plugins, and is a fork of the excellent draft-js-markdown-shortcuts-plugin by @ngs. (see why fork that plugin for more info)

Installation

npm i --save draft-js-markdown-plugin

Usage

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import Editor from 'draft-js-plugins-editor';
import createMarkdownPlugin from 'draft-js-markdown-plugin';
import { EditorState } from 'draft-js';
 
export default class DemoEditor extends Component {
 
  state = {
    editorState: EditorState.createEmpty(),
    plugins: [createMarkdownPlugin()]
  };
 
  onChange = (editorState) => {
    this.setState({
      editorState,
    });
  };
 
  render() {
    return (
      <Editor
        editorState={this.state.editorState}
        onChange={this.onChange}
        plugins={this.state.plugins}
      />
    );
  }
}

Add code block syntax highlighting

Using the draft-js-prism-plugin you can easily add syntax highlighting support to your code blocks!

// Install prismjs and draft-js-prism-plugin
import Prism from 'prismjs';
import createPrismPlugin from 'draft-js-prism-plugin';
 
class Editor extends Component {
  state = {
    plugins: [
      // Add the Prism plugin to the plugins array 
      createPrismPlugin({
        prism: Prism
      }),
      createMarkdownPlugin()
    ]
  }
}

Options

The draft-js-markdown-plugin is configurable. Just pass a config object. Here are the available options:

renderLanguageSelect

renderLanguageSelect = ({
  // Array of language options
  options: Array<{ label, value }>,
  // Callback to select an option
  onChange: (selectedValue: string) => void,
  // Value of selected option
  selectedValue: string,
  // Label of selected option
  selectedLabel: string
}) => React.Node

Code blocks render a select to switch syntax highlighting - renderLanguageSelect is a render function that lets you override how this is rendered.

Example:

import createMarkdownPlugin from 'draft-js-markdown-plugin';

const renderLanguageSelect = ({ options, onChange, selectedValue }) => (
  <select value={selectedValue} onChange={onChange}>
    {options.map(({ label, value }) => (
      <option key={value} value={value}>
        {label}
      </option>
    ))}
  </select>
);

const markdownPlugin = createMarkdownPlugin({ renderLanguageSelect })

languages

Dictionary for languages available to code block switcher

Example:

const languages = {
  js: 'JavaScript'
}
 
const markdownPlugin = createMarkdownPlugin({ languages })

features

A list of enabled features, by default all features are turned on.

features = {
  block: Array<string>,
  inline: Array<string>,
}

Example:

// this will only enable BOLD for inline and CODE
// as well as header-one for blocks
const features = {
  inline: ['BOLD'],
  block: ['CODE', 'header-one'],
}
const plugin = createMarkdownPlugin({ features })

Available Inline features:

[
  'BOLD',
  'ITALIC',
  'CODE',
  'STRIKETHROUGH',
  'LINK',
  'IMAGE'
]

Available Block features:

import { CHECKABLE_LIST_ITEM } from "draft-js-checkable-list-item"
[
  'CODE',
  'header-one',
  'header-two',
  'header-three',
  'header-four',
  'header-five',
  'header-six',
  'ordered-list-item',
  'unordered-list-item',
  // CHECKABLE_LIST_ITEM is a constant from 'draft-js-checkable-list-item'
  // see import statementabove
  CHECKABLE_LIST_ITEM,
  'blockquote',
]

entityType

To interoperate this plugin with other DraftJS plugins, i.e. draft-js-plugins, you might need to customize the LINK and IMAGE entity type created by draft-js-markdown-plugin.

Example:

import createMarkdownPlugin from "draft-js-markdown-plugin";
import createFocusPlugin from "draft-js-focus-plugin";
import createImagePlugin from "draft-js-image-plugin";
 
const entityType = {
  IMAGE: "IMAGE",
};
 
const focusPlugin = createFocusPlugin();
const imagePlugin = createImagePlugin({
  decorator: focusPlugin.decorator,
});
// For `draft-js-image-plugin` to work, the entity type of an image must be `IMAGE`.
const markdownPlugin = createMarkdownPlugin({ entityType });
 
const editorPlugins = [focusPlugin, imagePlugin, markdownPlugin];

Why fork the markdown-shortcuts-plugin?

Writing is a core part of our app, and while the markdown-shortcuts-plugin is awesome and battle-tested there are a few opinionated things we wanted to do differently. Rather than bother @ngs with tons of PRs, we figured it'd be better to own that core part of our experience fully.
