A React Component for SunEditor

NPM JavaScript Style Guide

WYSIWYG HTML Editor

Install

npm

$ npm install --save suneditor suneditor-react # make sure to install suneditor yourself

Getting Started

import React from 'react';
import SunEditor from 'suneditor-react';
import 'suneditor/dist/css/suneditor.min.css'; // Import Sun Editor's CSS File

const MyComponent = props => {
  return (
    <div>
      <p> My Other Contents </p>
      <SunEditor />
    </div>
  );
};
export default MyComponent;

To use suneditor-react with Next.js, please use the dynamic import syntax like below:

import React from 'react';
import dynamic from "next/dynamic";
import 'suneditor/dist/css/suneditor.min.css'; // Import Sun Editor's CSS File

const SunEditor = dynamic(() => import("suneditor-react"), {
  ssr: false,
});

const MyComponent = props => {
  return (
    <div>
      <p> My Other Contents </p>
      <SunEditor />
    </div>
  );
};
export default MyComponent;

Props

About Core

Note: suneditor-react doesn't expose the core object in the callback functions such as onScroll etc. This is because it can be easily retrieved by using the getSunEditorInstance like below.

// Javascript Version

import React, { useRef, useEffect } from "react";
import SunEditor from 'suneditor-react';
import 'suneditor/dist/css/suneditor.min.css'; // Import Sun Editor's CSS File

const MyComponent = props => {
    /**
   * @type {React.MutableRefObject<SunEditor>} get type definitions for editor
   */
    const editor = useRef();

    // The sunEditor parameter will be set to the core suneditor instance when this function is called
    const getSunEditorInstance = (sunEditor) => {
        editor.current = sunEditor;
    };

    return (
        <div>
            <p> My Other Contents </p>
            <SunEditor getSunEditorInstance={getSunEditorInstance} />
        </div>
    );
};
export default MyComponent;
// Typescript Version

import React, { useRef, useEffect } from "react";
import SunEditor from 'suneditor-react';
import SunEditorCore from "suneditor/src/lib/core";
import 'suneditor/dist/css/suneditor.min.css'; // Import Sun Editor's CSS File

const MyComponent = props => {
    const editor = useRef<SunEditorCore>();

    // The sunEditor parameter will be set to the core suneditor instance when this function is called
     const getSunEditorInstance = (sunEditor: SunEditorCore) => {
        editor.current = sunEditor;
    };
    return (
        <div>
            <p> My Other Contents </p>
            <SunEditor getSunEditorInstance={getSunEditorInstance} />
        </div>
    );
};
export default MyComponent;

Basic Settings

lang

Language of editor

//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor lang="en" />
	// Default is en
	// lang prop can be one of the strings provided in this array ["en", "da", "de", "es", "fr", "ja", "ko", "pt_br", "ru", "zh_cn", "ro", "pl", "ckb", "lv", "se", "ua", "he", "it"]
	// Alternatively, an object of your language can be passed to this prop. To learn how to do it refer to the bottom of the page
}

name

HTML form name of editor

This is used to set the HTML form name of the editor. This means on HTML form submission, it will be submitted together with contents of the editor by the name provided.

//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor name="my-editor" />
}

defaultValue

Set Editor's default value

//...
// Sets the default value of the editor.
// This is useful if you don't want the onChange method to be called on render.
// If you want the onChange method to be called on render please use the setContents prop
render() {
	return <SunEditor defaultValue="<p>The editor's default value</p>" />
}

width

Set Editor's width

//...
// px and percentage values are accepted
// eg width="100%" or width="500px"
// default is 100%
render() {
	return <SunEditor width="100%" />
}

height

Set Editor's height

//...
// px and percentage values are accepted
// eg height="100%" or height="100px"
render() {
	return <SunEditor height="100%" />
}

placeholder

Set Editor's placeholder

//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor placeholder="Please type here..." />
}

autoFocus

Should editor focus when initialized

//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor autoFocus={true} />
}

setOptions

Set Options (Settings) for the editor Click to see all options available

Important Note: Some toolbar buttons in suneditor require specific plugins to make them work properly. For example when you specify 'font' in the button list, you will need to import the required plugin from suneditor. suneditor-react by default loads all plugins. To change this behaviour, you can pass a plugin list of only the plugins you would like to load to the plugin option. This will override the default behaviour. To disable the loading of all plugins, set the setAllPlugins prop to false. Read More by clicking this

import SunEditor,{buttonList} from "suneditor-react";
/*
	buttonList.basic = basic buttons for wordprocessing
	buttonList.formatting = most tools used for formatting - This is the default option
	buttonList.complex = contains most of the buttons
*/
//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor setOptions={{
				    height: 200,
					buttonList: buttonList.formatting // Or Array of button list, eg. [['font', 'align'], ['image']]
                    // plugins: [font] set plugins, all plugins are set by default
					// Other option
			}} />
}

setAllPlugins

Sets all plugins used by buttons. Default value is true

import SunEditor,{buttonList} from "suneditor-react";

//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor setAllPlugins={false} /> // When set to false, you must explicitly set required plugins
}

setContents

Set Editor's Content

Note: To set the initial contents of the editor without calling the onChange event please use the defaultValue prop. setContents is used to set the contents of the editor programmatically. You must be aware that, when the setContents's prop changes, the onChange event is triggered.

//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor setContents="My contents" />
}

appendContents

Append Editor Content

//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor appendContents="My contents" />
}

setDefaultStyle

Set the default style of the editor's edit area

//...
render() {
	return <SunEditor setDefaultStyle="font-family: cursive; font-size: 10px;" />
}

Editor Status

disable

Disable Editor

//...
render() {
    // set to false to enable, default value is false
	return <SunEditor disable={true} />
}

hide

Hide Editor

//...
render() {
    // set to false to hide, default value is false
	return <SunEditor hide={true} />
}

hideToolbar

Hide Editor Toolbar

//...
render() {

    // set to false to hide toolbar, default value is false
	return <SunEditor hideToolbar={true} />
}

disableToolbar

Disable Editor Toolbar

//...
render() {
    // set to false to enable toolbar, default value is false
	return <SunEditor disableToolbar={true} />
}

Events

Note that you need to bind the function passed to the event in the constructor if you are using a class Component, or use arrow functions instead. This is just how react works. Otherwise it won't work. This documentation assumes you bind all your class component methods to the constructor. Eg below:

constructor(props) {
	super(props);
	this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this)
}
