Example code (React)

import { BlockNoteView, useBlockNote } from "blocknote-next-react";
import "blocknote-next-core/style.css";

function App() {
  const editor = useBlockNote({
    onUpdate: ({ editor }) => {
      // Log the document to console on every update

  return <BlockNoteView editor={editor} />;

blocknote-next-react comes with a fully styled UI that makes it an instant, polished editor ready to use in your app.

BlockNote comes with a number of features and components to make it easy to embed a high-quality block-based editor in your app:
