    angularjs directive for the squire rich text editor.


    2.0.0 is the latest but you should use the 1.x.x release because all these docs go with that. thanks!


    • a more functional ui than squire's example
    • minimal look and feel
    • my cat loves it
    • optional configurable html sanitization (requires sanatize.js - which is not included)

    Check out the DEMO


    bower install angular-squire --save
    npm install angular-squire --save

    or include the following in your code:


    (or the non .min versions)

    Don't forget to include squire-rte before this script!


    add an angular module dependency: angular-squire

    basic usage of the directive looks like this:

    <squire editor-class="foo" height="150px"
        ng-model="myModel" body="initialValue"
        placeholder="Type in here!">

    Attributes: editor-class - class given to the editor container (optional) height - css height for the editor (optional) width - css width for the editor (optional) body - binding that contains the initial html contents of the editor, if different from ng-model (optional) ng-model - where does the html go? required placeholder - placeholder text (optional) buttons - object containing button visibility options, see below (optional) purifyPaste - boolean or object. If true enable DOMPurify on paste, if object, use as options to DOMPurify (needs DOMPurify) focusExpand - boolean when true add listener for focus of this element and children that cause editor to expand open and close on blur while form is still clean

    Changing which buttons show on editor

    The buttons attribute on the directive can be an object where you can set any of the following keys to false. All keys are optional

        bold: true
        italic: true
        underline: true
        link: true
        ol: true
        ul: true
        quote: true
        header: true
        alignRight: true
        alignLeft: true
        alignCenter: true
        undo: true
        redo: true

    With cover and controls

    You can use <squire-cover> and <squire-controls> elements within the body of the <squire> tag.

    squire-cover will display its contents instead of the editor until you click on it, at which point it will hide and show you the editor and the controls (optional)

    squire-controls will place it's contents within the squire div. Its purpose is to add buttons under the editor which you can hide and show together with the editor.


    <squire height="150px" ng-model="bar" name="body" placeholder="why do you like cats?" required>
            <div style="border: 1px solid #dde6e8; color: #bbb; padding: 10px; cursor: pointer;">Click if you like cats</div>
            <div class="form-group">
                <button class="btn btn-primary pull-right" style="margin-top: 10px;" type="button">Meow</button>


    squireServiceProvider is available to configure the directive. It has the following methods:

    Methods: setButtonDefaults(obj) object containing default button visibility for all editors. See 'Changing which buttons show on editor' section for key names

    html sanitization

    input is sanitized if you include DOMPurify (either having it in your node_modules or be on window)

    changing the template

    If you want to change the editor's template html, you can do so by putting your custom template into the $templateCache under the key /modules/angular-squire/editor.html after you include this directive's javascript.

    For example html template see current template

    For advanced usage see demo.

    customizing scss styles

    The dist dir comes with the original sass stylesheet used to generate the css. You may elect to include this instead of the css if you already use sass in your project.

    The scss file dist/css/angular_squire.scss contains some variables which you may override:

    $angular-squire-border-radius: 5px !default;
    $angular-squire-container-bg: #dde6e8 !default;
    $angular-squire-border-color: #dde6e8 !default;
    $angular-squire-popover-bg: #FAFAFA !default;
    $angular-squire-highlight-color: #55ACEE !default;
    $angular-squire-wrapper-padding: 5px 0 !default;
    $angular-squire-expanding-height-min: 70px !default;
    $angular-squire-expanding-height-max: 150px !default;

    depends on
