How to use

Installation

First step is to install it using yarn or npm:

npm install @baianat/align

# or use yarn
yarn add @baianat/align

Include necessary files

<head>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/css/align.css">
  <!-- use editor's theme -->
  <!-- or create your own -->
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/css/default-theme.css">
  <!-- @baianat/colorpicker stylesheet -->
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="path-to-colorpicker/css/colorpicker.css">
</head>
<body>
    ...
    <!-- @baianat/colorpicker script file -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="path-to-colorpicker/js/colorpicker.j"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="dist/js/align.js"></script>
</body>

HTML Layout

You need a div to render Align in it.

<div class="align"></div>

<script>
  new Align('.align', {
    // settings
  });
</script>

You can also pass the element directly to the constructor

<div class="align"></div>

<script>
  const myAlign = document.querySelector('.align');
  new Align(myAlign, {
    // settings
  });
</script>

Align Customizations

Align comes with three styling bars(stylers), the main toolbar (toolbar) and the pop-up toolbar (bubble) that pops when you select a text.

You can choose to work with either of the toolbars, or both of them, by passing the toolbar object and/or the bubble object to the Align settings object.

You can choose what commands you'd like both of the stylers to include, by passing the desired commands through the commands array.

Align also shipped with creator bar(creator), which dedicated to add items like images, tables, posts, etc...

Adding new custom commands

To extend Align's cmdsSchemas object to add a new command or overwrite a current command behavior, use Align.extend('commandName', { //setting })

Note: you can overwrite the current commands behavior, if you used your commandName same as one of Align's commands.

Align.extend('commandName', {
  element: 'custom',
  data() {
    // a function to store a reference to command elements
  },
  create() {
    // a function to render the command on execution
  },
  action() {
    // a function to define command actions
  }
})

A full working example on how to add addImage command

Align.extend('addImage', {
  element: 'custom',
  data() {
    return {
      button: document.createElement('div'),
      input: document.createElement('input'),
      icon:
        `<svg class="icon" viewBox="0 0 24 24">
          <path d="M21 19V5c0-1.1-.9-2-2-2H5c-1.1 0-2 .9-2 2v14c0 1.1.9 2 2 2h14c1.1 0 2-.9 2-2zM8.5 13.5l2.5 3.01L14.5 12l4.5 6H5l3.5-4.5z"></path>
        </svg>`
    }
  },
  create() {
    this.$data = this.data();
    const button = this.$data.button;
    const input = this.$data.input;
    const icon = this.$data.icon;

    button.classList.add('styler-button');
    button.appendChild(input);
    button.insertAdjacentHTML('beforeend', icon);
    input.classList.add('styler-input');
    input.type = 'file';
    input.addEventListener('change', this.action.bind(this));

    return button;
  },
  action() {
    const file = this.$data.input.files[0];
    const selectedPosition = window.getSelection().getRangeAt(0);
    if (!file || !window.getSelection().rangeCount) return;
    const imageURL = URL.createObjectURL(file);
    const img = document.createElement('img');

    img.src = imageURL;
    img.classList.add('align-image');
    selectedPosition.insertNode(img);
    this.$data.input.value = null;

    // add your logic to save `imageURL` in the database
  }
});

Adding new custom icon

If you want to change Align's icons or add a new one, use Align.extendIcon('iconName', 'svg path')

Note: your icon should be only one path SVG.

// change bold command icon
Align.extendIcons('bold', 'M12 2c1.1 0 2 .9 2 2s-.9 2-2 2-2-.9-2-2 .9-2 2-2zm9 7h-6v13h-2v-6h-2v6H9V9H3V7h18v2z');

myEditor.$bus.on('imageAdded', ({file, update}) => {
  // save the uploaded image
  // and get its new link
  const newLink = saveImageToStorage(file);

  // update the image src with
  // the new generated link
  update(newLink);
})
