How can I install plugins?

There is an only Paragraph block already included in Editor.js. Probably you want to use several Block Tools that should be installed and connected.

To add more Block Tools, simply add them to your repo and pass them as tools-property to your editor:

npm install --save-dev @editorjs/checklist
import { createReactEditorJS } from 'react-editor-js'
import CheckList from '@editorjs/checklist'

const ReactEditorJS = createReactEditorJS()

<ReactEditorJS defaultValue={blocks} tools={{ checkList: CheckList }} />

We recommend to create a tools.js file and export your tools as a constant. Here is an example using all of the default plugins:

// tools.js
import Embed from '@editorjs/embed'
import Table from '@editorjs/table'
import Paragraph from '@editorjs/paragraph'
import List from '@editorjs/list'
import Warning from '@editorjs/warning'
import Code from '@editorjs/code'
import LinkTool from '@editorjs/link'
import Image from '@editorjs/image'
import Raw from '@editorjs/raw'
import Header from '@editorjs/header'
import Quote from '@editorjs/quote'
import Marker from '@editorjs/marker'
import CheckList from '@editorjs/checklist'
import Delimiter from '@editorjs/delimiter'
import InlineCode from '@editorjs/inline-code'
import SimpleImage from '@editorjs/simple-image'

export const EDITOR_JS_TOOLS = {
  // NOTE: Paragraph is default tool. Declare only when you want to change paragraph option.
  // paragraph: Paragraph,
  embed: Embed,
  table: Table,
  list: List,
  warning: Warning,
  code: Code,
  linkTool: LinkTool,
  image: Image,
  raw: Raw,
  header: Header,
  quote: Quote,
  marker: Marker,
  checklist: CheckList,
  delimiter: Delimiter,
  inlineCode: InlineCode,
  simpleImage: SimpleImage,
import { createReactEditorJS } from 'react-editor-js'
import { EDITOR_JS_TOOLS } from './tools'

const ReactEditorJS = createReactEditorJS()

<ReactEditorJS defaultValue={blocks} tools={EDITOR_JS_TOOLS} />

You can read more about plugins/tools at editor-js: Tools installation

How do I use custom element?

It's simpleeeee

<ReactEditorJS holder="custom">
  <div id="custom" />

How to access editor-js instance?

The editor-js instance is inaccessible. However, you can access the abstracted editor-js for isomorphic react-editor-js.

// abstracted editor-js interface
interface EditorCore {
  destroy(): Promise<void>

  clear(): Promise<void>

  save(): Promise<OutputData>

  render(data: OutputData): Promise<void>
const editorCore = React.useRef(null)

const handleInitialize = React.useCallback((instance) => {
  editorCore.current = instance
}, [])

const handleSave = React.useCallback(() => {
  const savedData = await;
}, [])

<ReactEditorJS onInitialize={handleInitialize} defaultValue={blocks} />

Haven't received data from server (when use Link)

You should set linkTool config. πŸ’ͺ🏻

import LinkTool from '@editorjs/link'

    linkTool: {
      class: LinkTool,
      config: {
        endpoint: 'http://localhost:8008/fetchUrl', // Your backend endpoint for url data fetching
